Straight lines holding up the Colosseum’s arches.

 

Melbourne’s Gallery of Australian Art

 

 

Plenty of straight lines in these

curved walls and ceiling

All fence lines should be straight.

 

 

 Straight lines everywhere

Trees nearly as straight as the lamp posts

 

Yacht masts

  

Car park lines.

One-Word-Sunday-Bridge

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

bridge

a structure carrying a road, path, railway, etc.
across a river, road, or other obstacle
~~~~~

To me, this is the most famous, or infamous bridge in the world. 

I think it was a Primary School teacher who

introduced me to Florence’s

Bridge of Sighs

From that day forth it was always

on my mind to see/visit in person

Was it because I crossed it in a previous life? 

Some I know would heartily agree.

 

Dubai’s elevated railway appears to be

one long bridge stretching through the city.

 

 

One of my favourite New Zealand landscapes.

 

 

Finally, the bridge everyone recognises.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.

All images were taken with…

Camera: Nikon D90

Lens:  Sigma 18-253mm

Focal Length: 18mm

Dubai’s, Burj Khalifa.

***

On the 148th floor is the

public observation deck

from where the following set

of images were taken.

Focal Length: 250mm

At 250mm we are looking at part of a building,

the size of which can only be estimated.

 

Focal Length: 52mm

At 52mm it appears reasonably tall

and on par with its neighbours.

Focal Length: 18mm

At 18mm we can see that the building is

of average size when a

neighbourhood comparison is made.

However, we can also observe that all

of these six buildings are comparatively tiny

when we take in the height of the camera.

The arrow indicates building

in the first image.

Looking up to the top of the Burj Khalifa.

Can you see how the concrete in

the middle foreground of this image,

(bottom) looks a bit like a kidney bowl?

My first image…looking up…was taken

while walking along that area.

A giant bicycle wheel?

The London Eye could be easily mistaken for that.

 

Ben does not appear that big from atop the Eye.

All that aside, whether day or night

the Sky Tower

provides excellent views of the

Auckland Harbour Bridge.

However, those ears look right at home
