What massive looks like


Give me strength
Quebec City, QC, July 2011
About this photo: This is one of my favorite pictures of the past year. Do you have one? If you do, I hope you'll share it. Click here to start.
Ever notice how if you stand near a really giant piece of engineering you eventually feel its presence in your bones? I can't quite explain why, but large structures created by humans seem to have a gravity all their own.

And so it was with the Quebec Bridge, which I probably could have hung around all day if time and my wife permitted. But she's wise in ways that I'm not. And practical (again, in ways that I'm not.) And our merry family had a museum to tour, animals to meet and experiences to experience. So I zoomed in for a few last grabs before we headed inside.

All these months later, I can still feel it in my bones. Can you?

Yes she was very wise to move you on, for even more and bigger photos in the museum!! How fun...and you did capture the feel of the massive structure right before our eyes...in a really strong way!
