Monochrome Weekend: Pedestrian Bridge and Low-water Dam over Arkansas River


Pedestrian Walk and Low-Water Dam over the Arkansas River .
The water above the dam is Zinc Lake, intended to be the first in a series of such lakes. These lakes, created by low water dams and other improvements in the Tulsa corridor, will make the Arkansas River more attractive and usable year round.

Love the contrast of the straight bridge and the curve of the weir, well suited to monochrome too. Happy New year from across the state.

Nice composition. I'm in the I love the curve against the straight lines crowd. Thanks for all your thoughtful comments. I just love company. Happy New Year.

Yes, I agree with some of the other commenters on this one, Bill. The contrast of the curve and the straight line is the strong element in this image of yours. Is this your first Maniac posting? If so, goodo. I like it.

For fear of repeating the others, I was drawn to the curve and the straight line too. Nicely done. And, now I can visit Tulsa too!

This looks great in black and white. Lots of lines and bends that might get lost in color.

I really like B/W pictures, it is a total different atmosphere. Less distraction, more to the point.

Good job!
