A Photo a Week Challenge: Bridges

I’m thrilled to have found nancy merrill photography‘s page because I find the weekly photo challenges enticing. It makes me dig up pictures from archives and as I go through them I remember the places we’ve been.

The theme for this week is Bridges. Both of the photos below were taken by our mobile phone cameras.

The first photo is taken from Firenze. It is the Ponte Vecchio bridge (also known as the Old Bridge), over the Arno River. What fascinated me about this bridge is not just its medieval architecture – it also houses several shops, some of which were founded a long time ago.

When we went to Germany in 2015, I fell in love with the charming city of Wurzburg, in Northern Bavaria. One of the landmarks is the Marienberg Fortress, atop a hill left of the Main River. The photo below is an ancient stone bridge over a moat.
