Lens-Artists Challenge # 84 – Narrow

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever
[Photos this week are hosted right here on WordPress.  Somewhere… ]

The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Amy.

Narrow minded? Narrow waisted? (Not in my case.) Narrowly harrowing?

We (the alls of me) shall endeavor to keep it simple.

(All photos are 30 year-old prints converted to digital. Quality was marginal even in the originals. A right-click might allow a photo to be opened in a separate window.)

The Gateway Arch National Park in St. Louis, Missouri looks narrow, as it soars 630 feet into the air:

English canals are narrow. I believe this is the Kennet and Avon Canal near Devizes, U.K.:

The walkway to Impressionist artist Claude Monet’s home in Giverny, France is narrow-ish:

The famous Japanese bridge in Monet’s garden is narrow:

The nave of the Wells Cathedral in Wells, Somerset, England, is narrow but soaring:

The Jacobite Steam Train, Ft. William to Mallaig, crosses the Glenfinnan viaduct, long before it was thought to use both in the Harry Potter movies:

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

    John, I am so jealous! I waited hours and hours hiking in and around the bridge hoping for a train but it was not to be. I’m a huge Potter fan and took many images but alas, brainless. Loved your version!

    Love the train shot! I immediately knew the scene from Harry Potter 😀 I love seeing all the other photographers sticking their heads out the windows to get the same shot!

    The Arch brings back fond memories of St. Louis. I grew up there.
