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.
The sign on our V/Line Carriage
…proudly announcing that the carriage
was made in Victoria.
Inside looking out and
the sign is reversed…
Bridge of Sighs,…that is until the sun shines
Auckland Harbour Bridge,
Bridge of Sighs,
Sydney Harbour Bridge,
West Gate Bridge,
Dry Stone Wall…
Gateway into old York
Sydney Harbour fences.
My kinda fencing
The only thing keeping this lamb behind
this old fence is a full belly.
A fence to keep giraffes out.
And just outside our tent door was a fence (foreground)
to keep elephants away.
It worked well, especially with this elephant.
Hamilton Botanical Gardens,
The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being the first avenue of its kind in Australia (perhaps in the world) and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory and extends for approximately 22 kilometres.
Arc de Triomphe, in Paris
…Arch in Ypres’
I had heard my Father talk of
Menin Gate all my life.
So my 2017 visit was a
truly moving experience,
to visit the battlefields
and pass along the same roads
as my Grandfather did,
during World War I,
all those years ago.
Certainly Australia’s best known arch.
Not sure how it rates on a world stage
although we are constantly told
it is recognised the world over.
Misery Creek Bridge.
A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery
to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.
In Botswana we came across
new bridge sporting this sign…
We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping
to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.
Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.
Sunrise under Melbourne’s
West Gate Bridge.
Evan Walker Pedestrian Bridge
Melbourne’s Yarra River
Finally, a bridge to nowhere.
Probably Australia’s best known bridge.
Auckland Harbour Bridge, New Zealand.
A small rural bridge in
New Zealand’s North Island.
Finally a bridge from my primary years of schooling.
Whoever said some of the old methods
of teaching are wrong is incorrect.
Or maybe I am getting older and cannot remember
what I had for breakfast, but can remember incidents
and conversations which occurred nearly 60 years ago,
as if it were yesterday. 🙂
