The Weekend in Black and White.


Footbridge


As TheChieftess noticed, this is the same bridge that features in my icon above.  I thought I might add a bit of background. 
When I took the original photo the bridge was a very attractive but totally impractical steep arch.  It leads from the town to the play park and shore, and children's buggies couldn't use it.  It was so steep that in rainy weather I almost needed climbing gear to cross it!  It was totally unusable in snow or frost. 
It has since, as you can see been adapted, the approach raised and lengthened.  It is now very much easier to use.

passing through there, and stopping juste because the daylight is special or because suddenly you feel in agreement with the place and time.... Have a nice weekend
