I have had a look around my folders to find some Trucks
The old truck that has been part of my street forever it seems

It’s time for the Motorcycles
In my past life, I used to work on the tack at the motorcycle races as a flag marshal. One of the best jobs as you are right beside the track. These are from the mid seventies. Yes I always had my camera with me in those days too except the photos were selective as it was film and cost a bit to get processed. These photos are in colour and scanned to black and white

Traces of the Past – Bridge

I don’t really like combine photo challenges but my blog bestie Paula and Frank have set the challenges that are quite easy to combine. So for Thursdays Special: Traces of the Past from Lost in Translation and Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bridge from Dutch goes the Photo here are my Bridges from the Past.

The first Bridge is the Pont Saint-Bénézet or Pont d’Avignon over the Rhone River at Avignon. It’s not much of a bridge as it doesn’t go all the way across the Rhone but still attracts lots of tourists every year

Another not really a Bridge is the Pont du Gard which is an aqueduct which crosses the Gardon River. It is a three story bridge

In Verona is the Bridge the Castelvecchio or Old Castle which crosses the Adige River. A beautiful red brick example of Gothic architecture.

How many Bridges can you count that cross the Arno River in Florence?

Of course my favourite Bridge is the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

In a garden in Seoul is a pretty little Bridge crossing a tiny babbling brook.

I could not let a Bridge or a Traces of the Past photo challenge go by without putting in the wonderful little Bridges in Venice.

These little Bridges lead to the apartment in Venice where we love to stay out of the tourist areas.
