Monet's Bridge by triciamary

Canvas Prints

Small (10.7" x 8.0")

$66.00


Taken at Giverny, France, in the gardens of the artist of Claude Monet. It was a rainy day in June 2008, but the garden was filled with flowers – but no waterlilies!
Shot with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1.

Bridges
by Sitti Navarro

I have crossed a thousand bridges
In my search for something real
There were great suspension bridges
Made of spiderwebs of steel

There were tiny wooden trestles
And there were bridges made of stone
I have always been a stranger
And I’ve always been alone

There’s a bridge to tomorrow
There’s a bridge from the past
There’s a bridge made of sorrow
That I pray would not last

There’s a bridge made of colors
In the sky high above
And I’m certain that somewhere
There’s a Bridge made of love

Bermuda born so I occasionally get “rock fever” and have to travel – especially to France! Mostly use my Nikon D200, but also use a Sony Cybershot DSC T90 and a Lumix DMC-LX5 for quick shots.

    You weren’t there at the right moment for the waterlilies, I caught a sunny summerday and it was just like the paintings.
    But thanks for sharing, you made it a beautiful picture !

  • Thanks for your comments. I hope to go back another day later in the summer just for the water lillies!

    There is a bridge like tapestry that connects everything. On that bridge is love. You breathe it, you touch it, you walk upon it and for the sake of your soul you eat.

    Beautiful image. Monet would have been proud of your work. Lovely Navarro poem.

  • Thank you again! The poem is beautiful.

  • Thanks Pat! It is a beautiful spot and I can only imagine how pretty it must be in the sunshine! It was such a dull, drizzly day when I went.
