Bridge

The theme for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is Bridge.

Seems straightforward enough, so for my interpretation, let’s look at some photos of bridges that I seem to have collected πŸ˜€

Bridges have a habit of showing up in my travel photos, as well as random photos I take day to day.

Some bridges are necessary to explore natural habitats that shouldn’t be disturbed. Like the pancake rocks in the small village of Punakaiki, in the South Island.

Some bridges you find in parks. They’re small, and when I see one I have to cross it, and also get a photo of it. The one below is me and my brother in Pollard park, taking a photo of my mum down below taking a photo of us.

Here’s the photo of my mum taking a photo of us on top of the bridge. Inception.

Some bridges are meant to be for trains only. But you gotta make your way across it to continue hiking your way to Machu Picchu. Now it’s an adventure.

Some bridges you find closer to home. In Zealandia, they have a long suspension bridge that you shouldn’t run across, but you want to.

They also have a bridge built on top of the skinny dam that blocks the lake from running over the rest of Zealandia.

Some bridges you don’t really think about. Like when you drive under one or over one on the motorway or highway.

Other bridges are landmarks, so you can’t help but notice them. When you visit, you feel obligated to take a photo of it, as it’s recognizable in both day and night. I don’t even need to say which bridge this is.

Some bridges are tiny ones in park that cross a stream, but you can bet that I will get a photo of it.

You can also bet that if I’m travelling with my husband, if I’m going to take a photo of a bridge, a lot of the times he will be in it. Whether he ran onto it to pose, or he just happened to be there. He’s in them a lot πŸ™‚

Bridges are pretty awesome, and if you see one, take a photo of it. Cause why not?

      1. You’re welcome, Angela! Good day to you!

  2. Fun and cute post, Angela. Made me smile. If you have a beloved, why just a bridge? Feature him everywhere, I say, till he and the readers beg you not to πŸ˜‰ Lovely photos of Rory there xx

    1. πŸ˜‚ Whether there’s a bridge or not, he tends to show up in my pictures. We both love to snap photos of each other, both flattering, and not πŸ˜€

      1. Just as it should be πŸ™‚ xx

  3. I love all the pics you’ve taken of bridges!! The bridges are all so different and unique!! Great post 😊 xx

    1. Thanks Amelia! It is funny how there are so many bridges everywhere, yet they’re all so different πŸ˜€

      1. It’s okay and yeah it definitely is!! 😊 xx

  4. You’ve been to quiet a few bridges! Love this post, xx

    1. I have πŸ˜‚
      I was looking through all my old photos and so many bridges popped up. They’re everywhere!
      Thanks Anni πŸ˜€

  5. Those are some very nice bridges. When you start noticing they are everywhere!

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ and yes they are everywhere! It’s fun keeping an eye out for them πŸ˜„

  6. Love your photos!!! I agree, take a photo of a bridge if the opportunity arises. I also love the photo inception and how Rory is in so many of them!

    1. Thanks Pamela! I love the photoceptions that happen πŸ˜‚ I have quite a few with my family. Also Rory does tend to show up in a lot. Most times it’s cause he keeps walking while i stop to take a photo. Other times if I’m ahead, he runs forward so he can purposefully be in them πŸ˜„

      1. Hahahahaha! That’s hilarious! He seems like such a great guy! I can’t wait to meet him when I come over some day for your famous cookies!

  7. Beautiful photos, Angela!

    1. Thank you Shanika! πŸ˜„

      1. Anytime, Angela! πŸ™‚

  8. We don’t realise how many pictures of bridges we take. Great photos Angela. πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha, it’s so true! Thank you πŸ˜„

  9. The best views are from bridges. I think, it’s because we are in the air, above it all. Birds eye view so to speak. You photographs are gorgeous πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Margaret πŸ˜„

      1. My pleasure Angela πŸ™‚

  10. Some bridges are scary to me lol but most are beautiful! I love the picture of your mom taking a picture of you πŸ˜„β˜ΊοΈ

    1. The bridge we crossed on the trek up to Machu Picchu we did pause at. But it all went well πŸ˜‚
      Haha, I love that photo too! Photo-ception!

  11. You do love bridges πŸ™‚ the ones for the trains are scary, though

    1. I didn’t realize I do, but I have so many photos of them! Yeah, that one was a bit scary, but it’s very sturdy, people were crossing it before us, so we felt safe πŸ˜€

      1. What if the train comes? Lol

        1. πŸ˜‚ From what I recall, it’s a little cargo train that comes like once or twice a day, so it’s fairly rare

          1. Oh, I’m no longer worried.

  12. I love this! Bridges both inspire as well as frighten me (have a thing about heights lol) but I think that is also why they are so amazing, because they really are a metaphor for life. You have to bridge the gaps, and sometimes it can be scary and sometimes it can be fun and sometimes it can be both. Thank you for sharing, and your pictures are stunning! Feeding my jet setting soul! <3

    1. I agree with you there. Bridges are metaphorically and physically inspiring πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much! πŸ˜€ <3

  14. I have such a love hate with bridges, for some reason driving over them especially when they’re over water it scares me but I cannot deny that the views and the actual bridge itself are just so visually stimulating. It’s crazy how many different bridges there are around the world- but I think it’s such a cool idea how you though to document and keep track of the ones you’ve crossed or encountered! Great post idea!!!

    xo, JJ
