Years ago, I saw the movie “Bridges of Madison County” starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. Not only was the romantic movie intriguing because of its storyline, but the bridges featured were captivating in a charming way. They sparked my interest in bridges in addition to my interest in lighthouses. I was inspired by the movie to pay closer attention to the bridges details.
Not only are bridges elegant because of their exquisite architectural designs, bridges have significance. Metaphorically, they represent transitional and transcendental movement. They are the mediums conducive to moving things from one place to another. They are the means to getting to the other side. Bridging together cultures and generations make the correlation of the past and present relatable. In other words, bridges are liken to an unifier. They represent unification.
Below are beautiful images of bridges across the country.
