Once I decided to make a complete set of photographs of the historic covered bridges in the State’s book, New Hampshire’s Covered Bridges, I became a bit obsessed with making a proper list and map of the bridges I’d be photographing.
I used the State’s book to make a list and then a map in Google’s My Map (an option in your Google Drive). It lets viewers zoom in and check out the map. It also lets me place markers on the map and color code the markers to indicate various things. In this case:
- Black Marker – That is home base, the town where I live.
- Yellow Markers – Bridges that I photographed before I actually began the project.
- Red Markers – Bridges that I have photographed since starting the project.
- Blue Markers – Those are the bridges that I need to photograph.
This helps me to plan trips and avoid missing a bridge. Or at least I hope so. My concern is that I not leave out a bridge while I’m in a specific part of the state and then have to make a special trip to photograph that bridge. So here is the map. I will update it as I go and we can check on the progress.
