There's Something About That Bridge
This gal, asked me where I had been that day with the cameras and, I showed her this photo.
She got all excited, her eyes got real big and she said, "I want that picture."
If, she had offered a large sum of paper money, I would have printed it right away.
But, she don't give me free beer and, I don't give away free photography.
She got busy serving other customers so, I put the photo away. Click, cell phone OFF.
Just as I walked into the bar, everybody was singing Happy Birthday.
They had a cake, lighted candles and all kinds of people brought presents for her.
Crap. I didn't know about it. I felt lousy but, ordered a beer anyway.
Today, I dug up the photo file and decided to print it.
The image at the top of this page has power lines, shooting off into the upper right corner.
They are a distraction so, I dragged some sky and clouds over them.
Tonight, I'll drop by the bar and give the print to the gal, as a belated birthday present.
There's no telling why, she got so excited over that picture of a bridge.
Maybe, when she was younger, she lost something down there.
