shot for 'the sunday challenge group' (curves). stuck for inspiration, i remembered seeing this oddly designed footbridge over the river nene outside the town of whittlesey. i like the fact that structurally the curved shape is made entirely from straight lengths of material, apart for the twin handrail construction on the right of the bridge whose shadow is clearly seen here.

I am a little confused (all's normal then)
are you on the bridge?
what's the point.. it looks too tall to see the river
I do like the curvature though.

Admired in The Sunday Challenge - where we are all in the same boat

yes, i am on the bridge for this take wendi- it's literally a curved bridge of 2 halves. the left hand side has this structural outreach, leaning over the water and a bit too high to see over, but planked with gaps and upper framed with squares so that the eye gets a limited impression of what's beyond and below. on the right is a twin rail standard barrier that affords unlimited views in that direction. odd, yes.

Super thinking for a curved structure, a little unsettling with it leaning outwards, I think I would feel it was about to fall away, me with it!

That really is a brill shot, Jon. As James said, simple, but all the better for it. I like it fading into blur in the distance, too.
