I really meant to write a story today. I had the idea all sketched out in my head and all I had to do was write it. Unfortunately, I’m giving a presentation at an international English teaching conference in Seoul this weekend and I’m leaving in a few hours. I haven’t even packed yet. So, here is another installment of the Visual Fiction series.
Bridges have always fascinated me. They are connections, as if to two different worlds. They seem so fragile, but are such a vitally important link.
This is one of my photographs. I cross this bridge every Friday to get to school. Does this photograph inspire you? What does it make you think of?

it reminds me that there is a way to get from here to there and a connection exists between the two ….

it reminds of the bridges of small towns, villages of west bengal!

Yeah. this leads up to a valley with small villages in it. It’s a vehicle bridge, but it’s only one lane, so if two cars go on in different directions, one has to back up and let the other go by first.

Makes me think of how far I’ve come, but how far I have yet to go.

That’s usually what I think when I’m hear too, in a more literal way. I walk almost two miles to my school from this point 🙂

What a gorgeous photo! You lucky you get to see this on a regular basis. It makes me think of a person who has a special friend across the bridge, or having to travel through the countryside to get to the big city and his journey to get there. Good luck with your conference!

cycling to work on cold winter days in Japan. Crisp air, a kind of sadness

This is Korea, so I would imagine it’s similar to rural Japan.

I’d never want to get stuck on that thing with a car coming the other way!

I’ve been on the bus when a car came the other way, with a car behind the bus too. It took 10 minutes to get it all straightened out. 🙂

It makes me think of leaving the past and walking forward into your future.

[…] I like the fog on it, since it gives a much different feel. Plus, the first Visual Fiction I did, The Bridge, didn’t have a story with it. This story is the beginning of a longer one I might write […]

love the part where the two different worlds is connected by a single bridge

It could be a bridge of peace, connecting two belligerent states. Would want to hurry to the destination on a sunny day. Would like to linger, admire the beauty and stroll slowly if the weather is pleasant.

That’s a good idea for it. Thank you. 🙂
