bridge over northern parkway


please click on this photo if you'd like to see the moon, up close and personal.


or northern state depending on what you like to call it. on long island, there is the southern parkway running on the south side of our island and then there is the northern parkway on the northern side. most people I know refer to either one by saying something like, "take the northern state to the S.O.B. (the name of a real road, I kid you not) heading south till you hit hempstead turnpike." but if you notice the road signs, it will only say northern or southern parkway and they do not include the word state. I've mentioned this before with regard to the southern parkway here, but I never mentioned the northern parkway. I know, fascinating stuff, right? if you like bridges in general, please go here and check out this weeks cool photo hunt meme.

Looking at this photo, don't ask me why but my main thought is: I bet that was a cold day when that photo was shot! ;S

sometimes your photos stir up my love relationship with Long Island - then I remember how rushed and crazy life was when we were there,which stirs up the hate part of that relationship ;0) I loved traveling on the Northern and Southern pkwy. LIE - not so much...

That's a pretty cool picture. I've always found bridges very symbolic, even going under the bridges. And thanks for reading my blog. its great to get other peoples input on what you have to say.
