The Drum Bridge ~ Moon Bridge

The Drum Bridge ~ Moon Bridge
Photography in some cases is catching the split second of time rapidly. At other times is waiting and being patient. I waited 25 minutes to get a people free photo of this stunning Drum Bridge in the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park .

It was not that it was busy.. very few people really but the spacing of them and those who just had to climb it !

Part of its story is in the previous uploaded photo

Also called a Moon Bridge

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_bridge

Ecobird, HelenaPF, Ernest CH, Claudine Gaulier-Denis and 58 other people have particularly liked this photo

In former times photographers had to wait for the right light only. Nowadays the absence of selfie shooters is a bigger problem.

La patience est une des qualités du photographe ! Mais le résultat valait bien l'attente de 25 minutes ! Il est original ce pont ! Mais sans doute difficile à escalader , la pente est importante et la descente un peu périlleuse il me semble !
Merci Pam pour ce joli partage .
