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.
A colourful Bridge in Vienna in a marina and leads to fun park on the River Danube.
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.
Thanks for coming across my Bridge and into the Traces of the Past

The amazing art work from Russia in the Venice Biennale in 2015. The eyes actually moved. When this bloke left the room the eyes followed him.
Most times I just have one photo per word for Lost in Translations Pick a Word. This time I have a few more for the September Pick a Word and perhaps using my artistic licence for the matching photo.
The view from Raspberry Lookout. My property is a few hills over on the left.
In order to get a good take off, you must have a good vantage point.
You can’t fence me in
Sometimes I feel like I am intruding when photographing butterflies and spiders.
Three’s a crowd when the males chase the female Orchard Butterfly.
Two Line-blue Butterflies getting “friendly”
Yes, the Huntsman Spiders were in the dining room but I don’t think they had eating dinner on their mind.
Once a butterfly gets old, the jagged wings are the first sign of age as on this Australian Gull Butterfly
