I don’t have that many photos of bridges, thought I as I started to gather them. There were 50 in no time. Here is a (good) half of them.
I like bridges – crossing them, looking at them, looking from them, the purpose and the idea of them.
They are old and new, designed for feet, trains or cars, and in one instance taken over by sheep. First come those from Italy and then those from Slovenia, even though my path has taken me in the opposite direction. Let’s cross these bridges when we see them.
Civita di Bagnoregio. Feet only, and 2 Eur please. I was in the car when I ran into this army. So I reversed. What can you do. One of many little bridges in Padua. A chance find near those sheep: Ponte dell’Abbadia in Vulci from 90 BC. That’s old. Another chance find: Ponte della Pia. I brake for bridges. From old to new. This is Ponte Settimia Spizzichino in Rome. Back to old. Ponte Cestio on the Tevere (or Tiber). Still in Rome: Ponte Sisto. The last from Rome on a winter day: Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II. To Pisa and the Arno river now. The bridge so famous that no (unintentional) blur can hide it. Hint: It’s in Florence. The bridge on the Mura river between Austria and Slovenia. A very small bridge over nothing at the Betnava Castle near Maribor. The view of my youth from my grandma’s window. The Drava river below, the Pohorje plateau above. Maribor, Slovenia’s second city. A footbridge in Maribor last summer. Amore on the bridge on the Sava river in Škofja Loka. To the Soča river now and its shades of green. Solkan Bridge is the world’s longest stone arch railroad bridge. Ahh, they thought of everything. Also the Soča below. Pedro and Crystal from Oregon discovering Slovenia last September. One more wobbly bridge over the Soča. This one is wobbly too but over the Savinja river. One of the rivers that fills Lake Bohinj. This is Alpine territory. It’s cold. The Črni Kal Viaduct is the longest and highest viaduct in Slovenia. Ferrari shot a commercial here. We must finish in Ljubljana, my city. Four dragons guard the Dragon Bridge and wag their tails when a virgin crosses it. Underneath the Triple Bridges on the Ljubljanica river, designed by Jože Plečnik. Love under the bridge. Be well, Ljubljana.
