Still fishing for the right idea

Bridge over French Broad River

French Broad River

This photo is from this past Saturday and is the Amboy Road Bridge over the French Broad River at the French Broad River Park, Asheville, NC.

The French Broad River was:

…originally named for being one of two broad rivers in western North Carolina . The one which flowed into French colonial territory was named the French Broad, and the other which stayed in English territory (the American colonies) was named the English Broad, now just the Broad River. – Wikipedia

It’s interesting to know a little history of the origin and naming of places I photograph.

As I work through this past weekends photos I’m seeing there are a number which could be candidates for my SoFoBoMo ’09 book. If I do use them, this falls back to one of my original ideas/themes for my book and abandons the recent harder to complete concepts having to do with non-verbal word associated communications expressed through images.

Using this weekends photos would be the easier course.

I haven’t made a final decision, but I keep thinking I don’t want to ” bite off more then I can chew”, especially on my first SoFoBoMo book project. ;-)

  1. “Non-verbal word associated communications” seems like a difficult theme to realise considering the 35 images you have to come up with in such a short time frame, but maybe that’s only what I read into these words. If I had no idea how to realise it, or no real drive to really want to do that, I would stick with the pictures of the past weekend. Just my thoughts.

  2. @Ove: I appreciate your thoughts! I believe your understanding is correct and I’m leaning to those same conclusions. I may undertake the “associated communications” as a personal project later this year when I’ve a luxury of time.

  3. I find the history of the river and bridge very interesting. Nice shot of the bridge.

  4. I identify with the notion of wanting to keep this SoFoBoMo project doable and not “bite off more than I can chew”.
