  4. Nice shot over New York. Did you capture that from the airplane window? if so, the results are great for an airplane-on-approach window shot.

  5. No, Pete. As I said, I took the picture from the 107th floor of the World Trade Center, back in August of 1997. We were there having lunch with my brother, his wife and my two nieces.It does look like from a plane, doesn't it? :-)

  11. I love bridges! There's one in San Diego that I particularly like because it's simple, swooping and futuristic. I also recently saw the (not) original London Bridge in London (duh).Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I love comments -- can't get enough of them.

  12. Hi Gabriel, Happy WW! What a nice idea. I should have been taking a long time ago I guess. I do take the ones that impress me.Holiday Inn Express doesn't serve those breakfasts, they just put the food out after they get it defrosted. It is self service.I had to make the sausage, egg, and biscuit sandwich...

  16. Reminds me of the bridge I used to walk across to go fishing as a boy. It was the highest railroad trestle in the New Hampshire.Once the terminus of the Peterborough and Shirley Railroad, Greenville was home to the highest railroad trestle in the state, 600 feet long and 100 feet above the Souhegan River.Happy WW!

  18. WOW -- looks like the bridges from the train set only they are now real. LOLI have a bridge in my photo this week in the Boston Public Gardens with the Swan Boats.I just want to say, I have trouble posting on your blog hit or miss. Very frustrating! Mr. Linky does not work for me here.

  20. Thank you for the one in Bruges!!!I love it, it's the town I was born and raised in! My parents and family still live there, and every time I see a picture of Bruges, my heart makes a tiny little jump!

  26. That's a lot of bridges. Very cool pictures, too, especially the one taken from the world trade center. ;)You know what they say about bridges...one of the hardest things in life is to know which ones to cross and which ones to burn (personally, I hate doing that last bit).Cheers, Gabriel!

  31. These are all fabulous, Gabriel. I must admit, when I read you'd taken the Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges photo from the World Trade Center I gasped; that makes the photo all the more special.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wonderful series...the one from the WTC made me a bit melancholy though...

    ReplyDelete

  36. That's a great idea bridges from all over the world. I will have to remember that as we travel this summer. I too had to laugh at the redneck triathlon sign on my post, at least until my husband announced he was buying a washer game to take to Germany with us. I guess we will be the rednecks on the block.

  37. Wow - that picture of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges is AMAZING!!!!

    ReplyDelete

  40. bridges link things so I esp like the ones that link countries link the one by Niagara fall between USA and Canada

  41. I've been on Mackinac Bridge and I've seen the Rainbow Bridge (but my family have always driven through the tunnel, for some reason.) You've been all over the place! I love the picture of the little bridge in Belgium. Absolutely gorgeous.And at the swearing-in ceremony in Halifax yesterday, there were people from Argentina.

  42. Gabriel, all these photos are fabulous! I have never seen the Niagra so cold! I saw little covered bridges in Lucern, Switzerland. I really liked the view from the World Trade Center. I got to see New York City in 1973 when I think they had just built the WTC? Or were building it. The only tall one we went up in was the Empire State.

  56. I've been on the Mackinac bridge once before.. thought my friends and I would never get off that thing! It wasn't the best day- traffic was backed up and stuff. :/ And of course, the NY bridges I'm familiar with, too.Argentina and Belgium look like nice places to visit.. I'd love to see all that one day. Great WW post! :)
