Before she could drive herself, I took my daughter Sophie to high school in Greenwood, Mississippi and would wind my way back home on backroads. Although it’s not the one Bobbie Gentry refers to in her famous song “Ode to Billie Joe,” this Tallahatchie bridge crosses that winding river near the intersection of Highways 49 and 442. I photographed this bridge many times but favor this version with birds, frost, and wintry mist.
