The superstructure of the Silver Jubilee Bridge east of Liverpool.
Usually the connection across the river Mersey and Manchester Ship Kanal.
After having been a main route to Liverpool from the south,
then it will soon be back as a local route as originally planned.
“If possible, don’t burn bridges, rather build many more“
British walkway – not a question of right or left.
But a question of up or down – illusions are wonderful.
Liverpool, the river Mersey Gateway.
Connected to the winterscape.
The trees hide the bridge, as if they would lure some wet feet.
Only dexterity, no witchcraft.
The Kiel Canal between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, through Schleswig Holstein.
The high bridge at Rendsburg.
“Ponte dei Sospiri”
“The Bridge of Sighs”
Maybe the worlds most “dangerous” bridge ever..!
The bridge itself is safe enough – the bridge is escape secured and made of white limestone and has windows with stone bars – it passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects the “new” prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace
it was designed by Antoni Contino
(whose uncle Antonio da Ponte had designed the Rialto Bridge in Venice)
the bridge was built in 1602.
So far so good.
But a local legend says that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss
if they kisses while they are on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge Of Sighs.
So take care who you kiss under this bridge
or who you let kiss you.
Kiss only if you are absolutely sure, that you are kissing the only one.
