A bridge too far
I was thinking that I've never added a picture to Louis la Vache's 'Sunday Bridges' before - and then thinking that's probably because I don't have that many pictures of bridges - and then thinking that's probably because there aren't many bridges round here... and those that exist are singularly boring and uninspiring. This footbridge in itself is nothing much. Kind of standard issue "we need a cheap, functional way of getting from one side of this river/canal/road/ravine to the other" stuff. There are no doubt many others constructed to an identical design, all over the UK. This one is called Buck Mill Bridge, crossing the River Aire near Tong Park, Baildon on the path to Buck Woods. What I did like about it this particular day was the shadows and the way it seems to go on forever. An 'Alice in Wonderland' kind of bridge!
