  1. I do love bridge cables. We have a beautiful bridge here with similar structure — the geometry of it all is so appealing, and you’ve done well at capturing it.

    1. I have a thing with bridges. There are so many architecture styles that it’s difficult to decide which you like best. When I was in New York, I was flabbergasted at the beauty of the Brooklyn and Verrazano Bridge. And of course the beauty of the Golden Gate in San Francisco is classical.

      This is a relatively new bridge inaugurated in 2004 under the administration of Ms. Mireya Moscoso, then President of Panama. Upon its opening in 2004, it became the second permanent crossing of the Panama Canal.

  2. I did not know you loved bridges. I have crossed some in my life that were exhilarating. In Japan (1953-1956) all bridges had been rebuilt because they were bombed during the War Years. Some of the temporary bridges were exciting to look at. Even suspended bridges where you walk down hill and once at the middle you begin to walk up hill.

    1. Yes Abe. When I view a movie, the first structure I look for are bridges of that city or town; then I will recognize the city. I have seen your wooden covered bridges. They are awesome. As a matter of fact, I recall you made a painting of one of these lovely bridges.

      We don’t have those in this part of the world. Yep my dear friend, bridges are fun; but some can be really scary. I’ve seen some dangerous bridges over here, but I would never walk on these precarious bridges used by the Gnobe Bugl√© Indians in Bocas del Toro. They are called “puentes colgantes” (hanging bridges).

    1. Australia has one of the most beautiful bridges of the world; meaning the Sydney Harbor Bridge next to the Sydney Opera House. Absolutely a beautiful view for tourists visiting Australia.

      The color of the sky is the result of the sun rising in the East. The shot was taken about 6:15 a.m.
