My World #18

This is my posting for the My World meme . It is hosted by Klaus, Tom, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Last week there were over 100 people showing their worlds to us. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Here is part of 'My World'.

This is the smallest and final bridge in my bridges over the Cuyahoga River. It is the Stow Street Bridge and there are parks and along each side of the bridge. The street changes it's name to Summit Street which goes on the South side of Kent State University. There are two sets of railroad tracks to cross when using this bridge. You often have to wait to cross the bridge.
The river is rather high from our melt and rain, the bridge is safe even though it is the lowest bridge.
Here is a view of the bridge from under the Haymaker Parkway Bridge. That is a high level bridgeand is above both railroad tracks and is never stopped.
This is a view of the flooded river just for fun. That tree is normally on a small island.
Try to visit some of the neat places people are showing around the world.

Haymaker - what a great name. Evokes memories of great boxers.

Hope your wife liked those beautiful roses.

Of all the scenes you've shown in the mini bridge(should that be abridged)series this is the most British looking. I actually feel like I could walk along here in any British town. Do the bridges again for me anytime.

You are right FG, traffic is scarce (or next to non-existent) on our gravel path in the bush! But sometimes we go to Kano - West Africa's Cairo - and you see nothing but.

Warm greetings!!

I do like your bridges! (I spent this past weekend photographing some!) And that photo of the flooded river was beautiful!

Titania said...

The river looks pretty wild. No fishing in this river for a while, I guess. Bridges are an interesting theme. I like bridges and always like to look and take pictures.

George said...

I've enjoyed your bridge series. This was a nice bridge with which to conclude the series.

This is a study of the power of water.

Our rivers are flooded too and a few roads are closed in spite of the cold weather we've had for the past few days. Glad the bridge is still safe!

Sara G said...

Great pictures. All that snow melting has the river raging!!

Sylvia K said...

What great shots! Just marvelous, FG, I love bridges and I love your photos! Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

Mojo said...

Wow. The river's running way high, isn't it? Good that the cut is so deep or you guys could be in serious trouble!

Today's Blah said...

What a great shot, I love the bridge photo and the waters.

Susie of Arabia said...

You sure have a lot of bridges in your area! There's just something about bridges that I think is fascinating. Thanks for showing us all your bridges!

ViennaDaily said...

Jo Castillo said...

Very interesting photos. I have taken a few photos of bridges with the idea of painting one and never have. Hmmm. A new series???

alicesg said...

Congratulations on the huge participants on MY WORLD. Great Job. The photos of the town looked very peaceful and lovely. Nice scenery. Love the songs in your blog. Have a nice day. :)

Shionge said...

It has defintely reminded me of my trip to the Canyons ;D

I really really missed that.

Wren said...

How does anyone ever get across the bridge with two sets of train tracks?

Robert V. Sobczak said...

As a hydrologist, I approve of this post. The snow melt has entered the river, and interesting that you know which bridge is the lowest.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Okay Mr. Tom.... Get off of that fishing boat and write your book!!! You know--the one entitled "Bridges of Kent, Ohio." I want the first autographed copy!!!! Okay????

I still like that one fancy bridge (with the gas lights) --which goes to the ritzy area of town!!!!

Thanks for these GREAT posts.
Betsy

Pietro said...

I enjoy your bridge series, Fishing Guy. Here there are very nice landscapes and an amazing water.

antigoni said...

Wonderful photos. I love bridges, big or small.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Gosh but that is a lot of water coming down Tom. The great thing is it means it is getting warmer at last even if it might not feel like that to us yet.

gnometree said...

So much water! Have you managed to get out fishing yet?

tipper said...

I've loved all the bridges you've shared-but this smaller one kinda seems extra special!

soulbrush said...

you can see it's still wintery in your pics. happy mwt.

Tricia said...

We haven't had flooding here, but I imagine it'll be coming if the Mississippi River is flooding up north! Fine pictures!

Denise said...

I enjoyed your tour of the bridges and I am glad that the lowest one and you all are safe from the flooding rivers. A nice series of photos. Thanks and happy MWT to you and yours.
