Went out with a group Saturday to photograph two of the thirteen covered bridges left in Kentucky. I hope to capture the remaining bridges as soon as possible.

The Switzer Bridge in Franklin County.

Those old bridges are really neat. It would be interesting to do a 'four seasons' series.

Just wondering: what's the purpose of covering up a bridge? :)

I've heard that it was to keep horses from panicking as they crossed the bridge.

A lot of bridges in olden times were covered to keep the weight of the snow buildup from creating too much of a load, and sometimes to protect the lower structure from the elements.

Went out early this past weekend and shot another bridge, this one is the Mt. Zion bridge in Washington county. It is a shame that people don't have any more respect for our heritage than to paint all over it...
