Bonner Bridge Closed Indefinitely PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dan Beauvais   
Tuesday, 03 December 2013 15:08

UPDATE:  The bridge received emergency repairs and was re-opened Sunday, December 15, 2013.

----

The Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks of North Carolina has been indefinitely closed today, December 3, 2013, over safety concerns.  Routing scanning has discovered sand erosion under critical support structures. 

The bridge is the only highway access for vehicles between Hatteras Island and the mainland. The NC Department of Transportation is establishing emergency ferry service for residents, capable of transporting 380 cars each way per day.

The bridge is targeted for replacement, but work has on hold following a series of legal challenges.

Bonner Bridge over Oregon Inlet, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  This photograph was made from a private plane, looking northward. The Oregon Inlet Fishing Center is found beyond the broad sweep of the bridge.  Bodie Island Lighthouse is in the upper left corner, and the beach homes of South Nags Head are seen in the top center.  The wide sands at the north end of the bridge are accessible to four wheel drive vehicles, providing a popular surfcasting area.

The bronze compass rose embedded in the deck of Jennette's Pier, Nags Head, NC, at sunrise. I deliberately exaggerated the perspective by shooting just inches above the deck, using an extreme wide angle lens.

Inspired Holiday Cards from Artists, Not Box Stores PDF Print E-mail

It's Christmas card time!  Are you looking for more than the same forgettable look-alike cards from the big box store?

Consider cards offered by independent artists.  The independent artist will only produce passionate artwork.  It will be the finest they have to offer, executed with every bit of skill they can muster, because their pride is on every card.  Their soul is in their work - it will not be an impersonal generic design.

Your town probably has somebody offering cards featuring local interest.  Check your local art gallery.  Or see if an artist that you follow on Facebook or elsewhere on the web may offer designs that will appeal to you.  After all, you do share enough interests that you follow them!

Since cards from independent artists are produced in small quantities, and often on demand, they are sure to be pretty unique!  Your loved ones will not receive this card from multiple people.

By purchasing greeting cards from independent artists, you will encourage them to continue producing art reflecting their unique vision, and thus providing you with choices that are anything but ordinary.  Rather than augmenting a CEO's bonus, the money you spend will benefit the artist.  It will help fund the training, materials, and equipment necessary for them to execute their craft and pursue and share their passion.

I have assembled a gallery of Christmas images, suitable for Christmas cards.  Some are specific to Christmastime on the Outer Banks.  These, or any of my images, are available as high quality greeting cards.  You may order directly from my web gallery.

I would grateful if you chose my work to share with your loved ones.  But whether me, or somebody else, please support a deserving independent artist!

 
Monument to a Century of Flight PDF Print E-mail

A study of the details in the Monument to a Century of Flight, in Kitty Hawk, NC. The monument's essential structure consists of fourteen wing-shaped stainless steel pylons ascending in height from 10 feet to 20 feet in an orbit of 120 feet, the distance traveled by the brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright in their historic first flight on December 17, 1903.

The stainless steel surfaces are etched in seemingly random swirls.  These etchings reflect the light striking the surface, creating jewel-like glows.  The hilltop monument is a wonderful place for quiet introspection.  I find it a visual delight, and challenging and rewarding photo subject.

We often concentrate of the top and front side of flowers. But the backs and bottoms have beauty of their own. I love the graceful curve on this stem of this faded flower.
