A collection of bridges from around the world.

Shiny balloon installation at the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver, BC, with Lion’s Gate Bridge and a blue moon shining on the water in the background.The hanging bridge in the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Garden is entered through two pineapple-topped pillars – meaningful as pineapple was one of the many gifts of food that Mexico brought to the world.
Singapore has some spectacular futuristic architecture on its inner harbour. One of them is this high-rise boat that bridges two skyscrapers and I believe there’s a swimming pool up there too.
This is the bridge in Bilbao that leads over to the city’s famous Guggenheim Modern Art Museum. Frank Gehry designed the new museum to incorporate the designs of pre-existing architecture that surrounded it. In the case of this bridge this meant adding a false section that ‘bridged’ the design of the bridge with that of the museum.Testing night photography in Bruges, Belgium. This was a DSLR shot of a canal with a small bridge – none of the point ‘n shoot shots at night even come close.
Going under the bridge on the Deception Pass boat tour (USA). (More of our boat trip (and whales!) in Deception Pass.)
A walking bridge in Udaipur, India.Holland with its many canals has of course many bridges over the canals. The bulk of them are drawbridges that allow for boats to travel underneath like this one in Edam.The Ha’penny Bridge leads into the Temple Bar District of Dublin (Ireland).More of Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge: Bridge.
