It’s a pity this photo challenge only happens once a month as it’s my favourite. This month Lost in Translation has supplied some words and here are my pictures.
Have a look at what other photographers have supplied to the words at Lost in Translation
For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles I would like to show you the bridge in my town. The rail line is straight but the bridge has a number of bends, giving the local name of the Bendy Bridge. It was built in 1932 and the design is unique to Australia as it has a it has a railway line on the lower deck and the road is the upper deck. It used to open until the water main was built onto the structure and shipping stopped going up river, now the bridge no longer opens. There is another bridge being built along side the old bridge as in the mornings and afternoons there is quite a build up of traffic crossing the river. Large vehicles and buses have a hard time negotiating the bends and traffic coming in the opposite direction usually stop to allow the larger vehicles get around the bends.

The walkway with the rail line on the left. There is another walkway on the other side. The crane on the right is where the new bridge is being built.
