Bridge - Our Beautiful World

Source

This Sunday's OBW topic is bridge, chosen by Kirsty. The word bridge brings to my mind the old song of Simon & Carfunkel...

The Bridge over Troubled Water

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

We have many rivers and lakes in Finland, so most of our appr 15 000 bridges cross over them. The bridge shown above is one of the most beautiful Finnish bridges - Jätkänkynttilä Bridge in Rovaniemi Lapland. More fabulous photos of it you can see in the link under the photo.

I'm so sorry, but I don't have any representative bridge photos in my archive. Only a few humble ones...

My walking route went under this bridge...





Another walking route...

It is of course The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco! Please open the link below the photo for more information. You can find hundreds of photos of Golden Gate online... Look here how it is featured in Popular Culture. Vertigo from 1958 by Alfred Hitchcock is one of the films with Golden Gate. Isn't this interesting!

  1. Sillat ovat sitten hienoja. Parhaat kuvat saisi yläviistosta, mutta harvoinpa sitä pääsee helikopterilla lähestymään. :)
    Joen ylittävä silta on suosikkikuvani. Ihanan vehmaat näkymät!
    Kaunista sunnuntaita!

  5. Sillat ovat hyviä kuvauskohteita. Kameralehdessä oli joskus artikkeli siltojen kuvaamisesta. Kivoja kuvia!

  6. Kuvia katsellessa palautui mieleen, kuinka eilen kulkiessamme länsiväylää ylittävää siltaa, alkoi Riku-koira haukkumaan alla ajavia autoja:)

  7. That first photos is beautiful.
    When I work on the mainland I pass by and sometimes over two beautiful bridges on the Fraser River. There is nowhere to stop safely for a photo. Someday I will have to take a passenger with me and insist he take a photo!
