Most of the time we think of a photo showing only a moment in time. We think of moves showing change not still photos. In this photo there is change from about 100 years to the second that I pressed the shutter release. This is the Tacoma Narrows. About 100 years ago the people crossed here using a ferry. This was replaced with a bridge in the 40s that was blown down and replaced with the green bridge you see in the 50s. Now in this century a new bridge is being built to try and keep up with all the changes. At the bottom of the photo you see what is left of the old bridge that went out to the ferry dock. At the top you see the future. In between you see the moment.

Time and time again, I've noticed that a photograph is made just that much better when there are words to go with it. Your words brought out the meaning in this picture, and you actually sent me on an enjoyablelittle head trip. The notion of time is nicely done.

I also like the reflecting thoughts that bring the history of the moment to the viewer.

Here is a new version of the same Photo. I think this one is better, but what do you all think?

Daz, you probably don't realize this, but those of us who haven't chosen the default color scheme on the forums (my choice is alight graybackground) can't see what you've written when you use color. We have to select your words before being able to read them, so you're best off not using colored type, in particular, the light colors.

I am sorry. Your right I did not know. I usually type off line then get on the forum and cut and past my text. When I do that it makes the text black on black so I just pick some other color. It looks like the default color is white so from now on I will stick to white (unless I should use some other color).

Ahh! Now I can see what you've written. Writing offline certainly makes everything easier to see when you're typing it, so I definitely sympathize with you. I've done this periodically too, but because I use the light gray background here in the forum, I've never experienced that black-on-black business. I'll have to check it out. Nevertheless, thanks for making the change. These old eyes are happy now.

I switched to the black background,then typed this in Notepad and copied it andpasted it, but it showed up just fine as white-on-black. Are you using Notepad or something else? If you're using Word, that could be the problem. Some of its codes seem to get copied and then end up scrambling the message somewhat.
