Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental…

When I think of experimental I think back to my visit a few years ago to the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, New Jersey.

This is the chem lab..in 1887 this was one of the best equipped chemical labs in the world. Within its walls, Thomas Edison and his chemists experimented on everything from phonograph records to rubber.  “Grand science, chemistry,” Edison once said, “I like it best of all the sciences.”

This was taken driving over the Tappan Zee Bridge between New Jersey and New York last week.  The cars and bus look so small compared to the scale of the bridge.
