I was very pleased to receive an email from Will Truax, timberframer, bridgewright, preservation carpenter, wooden bridge historian & blogger http://bridgewright.wordpress.com/ linking me to information he posted on his blog about restoration and local folklore when building Cilleyville #16 Covered Bridge. Link to his entry Living Memory « Bridgewright, interesting reading. Will was a part of team restoring Cilleyville Covered Bridge.
About Wm. Truax
Proprietor at The Truax Timberwright Woodworks
I'm a timberframer and preservation carpenter, and regularly work on Covered Bridge restoration projects. Bridgewrighting can be a tough row to hoe, for a myriad of reasons. From scheduling issues to differing opinions and philosophies on what is appropriate in methods and materials, to multiple jurisdictions still not sufficiently vetting bidders resumes - Which is to say, just because a company is on that state approved list and capable of building that seven figure overpass, this does not mean they are capable of restoring a wooden bridge... So, I have much to say about all this and more - And despite my tough row observation, I promise not to whine.

|Cloned photo removal of the school bus, wires and houses.|
|Original photo with school bus, wires and houses|
My husband Bob and I have traveled the state locating and photographing our covered bridges, when possible, different seasons of the year.
I took a photo of Cilleyville#16 Covered Bridge located in Andover, a winter shot. My original photo had a school bus, wires and houses. I decided to clone out and make my shot an artistic winter photo.

I tried a different format of photography, minimalist photography. I spotted a lone pinecone in the snow with the sun light exploding jewels on the snow...I had to try and capture.
Again I am using my EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS, taking macro shots.

I am so happy to be able to play again with my photography. I noticed icicles hanging from the roof and I wanted to try an shoot. I tried handhold, it did not work...I really have a hard time holding my camera steady for macro shots..I used my 70-200 f/2.8L, to take a closer photo of the icicle.
I set up my tripod but still could not obtain a clear/sharp shot through the window..I kept trying without success.
Finally I decided to take out the screen, the screen is inside, opened the window and shot. It was challenge and I was determined!!! SUCCESS!!!
