Two men on a bridge

The south east pylon of the bridge is a tribute to the people who brought the bridge to fruition.
Separated by eighty years but joined by a vision of the power of engineering to bring peoples together.

Sixty years old at the end of June and never been up the pylon nor walked across the bridge. We soon rectified that!

I agree with Serge. A bit Indiana Jones.

The lighting in the first shot is great.

Ah, men and their restless longing made visible.

Well done, it is a great walk across. I once visited the maintenance facility - they have some huge spanners!

Climbing the SHB is on my 'Bucket List'. Nice shots, Julie.

Powerful photos! I can feel them thinking and reflecting...

Nice portraits. I especially like the way you managed to capture the opera house in the bottom shot.

It is a long climb up the pylon I did it years ago, doubt I could do it now.

Julie said...

Yep, you could. If the chap in the lower photo - my younger bro - could do it, so could you!
