Crossing Bridges

Bridges become frames
for looking at the world
around us.
~ Bruce Jackson

I cross my 200 mark, with these bridges! Look forward to your company on the journey to the next 200.

  1. wonderful bridges. I have always loved bridges πŸ™‚
    I tried to ‘like’ this and my pc came up with a ‘clearjacking’ warning. Maybe your blog’s been attacked with something nasty?

  2. Great shots Madhu. To me, each bridge has a personality of it’s own. Thanks for sharing these. -Max-

  3. Bridge, tunnels and curves in the road. I always want to see what’s on the other side. Love the architecture that goes into designing bridges. Great collection.

  4. my ‘like’ button waved no flag, and the google address bar shows a clear field.

    as always, you did an amazing job! your posts are always filled with gorgeous images! thanks for giving these eyes a worthy vacation from painting! z

  5. I love your pictures from that side of the world. The bridges of Japan and China are beautiful.


  6. You have been under many bridges … maybe crossed a couple too. *smile … beautiful gallery … with stunning photos – I want to pick one .. just to train my eyes for details and impressions. Suzhou in China … both photos are talking to me – it reminds me very much of one of my favorite places in Europe – Bruges in Belgium.

  7. Congratulations on the 200 Madhu – looking forward to the next 200 πŸ™‚ Always a treat visiting your beautiful blog!
    Loved the wonderful collection of bridges!

  8. I love to photograph bridges. These are all stunners Madhu! I look forward to your next 200 posts. πŸ™‚

  9. Wow, Madhu, the bridges in China and Japan are fabulous. You are the queen of bridges; these are the best photos I’ve seen yet! Even your header proclaims you as the champion of bridges. πŸ™‚

  10. Amazing bridges, excellent captured – bridges are so important to us, imaginary bridges too… πŸ™‚

    when I was a very young boy late 60s and early 70s – the song “Burning Bridges” was one of my favorite songs… πŸ˜‰

  11. Loved the photos, Madhu. You sure are building bridges between folks from around the world with your passion for travel and such delectable photography.

    God bless.


  12. Great collection, Madhu. I thought my favourite was Avignon, then I saw Pont Neuf! And those canals too. Maybe I should look for one I don’t like.

  13. These bridges are beautiful. The one at Hi Xu looks like a bridge which would be found in the highlands of Scotland.

    The ones in Japan and China look wonderful.

    Sadly, the only famous bridges I am familiar with are those in the UK. Travelling in a ferry under the Forth Rail Bridge was amazing, as was the ferry journey under Tower Bridge in London.

    On railway journeys I have been over the Glenfinnan Viaduct travelling from Fort William to Mallaig in Scotland, the Royal Border Bridge, which spans the River Tweed between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Tweedmouth in Northumberland, England and the viaduct over the River Clyde between Motherwell and Hamilton in Scotland.

    The bridge at Kenrokuen gardens – Kanazawa, Japan would look dangerous to the health and safety brigade in the UK. No handrails!

  14. Breathtaking photos Madhu – thanks for taking us all around the world in one post! Had I not done architecture I might have gone into civil engineering… which would have been almost expected, coming from a family of engineers! Congratulations on reaching 200 posts. πŸ˜€

  15. Congratulations on reaching 200, Madhu – well done!

    Love your collection of bridge photos – I can’t resist photographing bridges πŸ™‚

  16. Great collection! So many places you’ve been! It correlates well with the milestone. Happy 200 Madhu. Know that I’ll always be a big fan of your blog.

  17. Almost all of these bridges are so much friendlier to height-challenged people than the lofty overarching steel constructions of the West!

  18. Ahhh – a collection of the most fabulous ‘Eastern’ bridges – surely the most evocative of structures, so delicate and scene-stealing while being so practical. So much catching up to do – computer collapsed just before I went away into the wilds of the Knuckles where there were no modern distractions save electricity for our rooms! Catch up soon. πŸ™‚

  19. πŸ™‚ Congratulations on the double century! Looking forward to many many more! As always, a lovely selection of pictures πŸ™‚
