Bridges abroad

.
That's it. I have run out of Jerusalem bridges for Louis' Sunday Bridges.
What would happen if I posted, just once, something from my volunteer years in Switzerland?
Yalla, let's do it!

Here's a favorite wooden bridge for hikers over the fast-flowing River Areuse, at the foot of the Jura Mountains.
Nicely juxtaposed is the new highway, just being built then, in 2006.

Both bridges are nicely curvaceous.

Having the same problem, very few bridges here. Been posting several bridges in France and Venice. Venice, 171 bridges!!!
Love this 'Jurassic' wooden bridges!

If wasn't for your bad luck of running out of Jerusalem bridges I would have never had the good luck to view your photo of this beautiful wooden bridge. Thank you and good luck!

That would have been when I had the Roy Rogers cowboys guns and holsters. Same as your's.

I like the bridge photos. If I did a photo on our bridges across Wolf Creek most would look like any other part of the road. Nothing to see. Whoops,,,you can see the last production run of the Lincoln Factory...copy and past the link.

Bicycle riders are separated from polluting cars, I like that very much as I have asthma :-)

There we go gallivantin' around the world in search of bridges! Great!

I didn't ever notice the wooden bridge in foreground at first, but I like the contrast.

A great compromise, and there is nothing wrong with breaking the rules now and then. The important thing is that we see the world through YOUR eyes. It's a lovely photo.

You'll get no flak from me, Dina... and these in Switzerland are bridges with lovely lines.

Two different speeds.

A very good picture indeed. Please have a nice start into the new week.

Interesting looking bridge, is it completely closed in.

I wondered if/when people would start running out of bridges. You've done an admirable job. The bridge on the left here is curvaceous and lovely. I think Andy has the right attitude.

I love the perspective in this beauty.

Kay said...

You know.... This is really a very interesting photo with the curves and a blend of the old and the new. Very well done, Dina.

Lovely! And were you still in Little Rock when they constructed the Big Dam Bridge (2006). It's a beautiful pedestrian and bicycle bridge over Murry Lock & Dam. That would make another great candidate for your bridge post.
