    loved the pics, especially the water bridge, that structure has to hold a lot of constant weight.

    Very cool link. Number 5 is in my town. Amazing bridge and a great draw for tourists and locals alike; the sundial is exactly right only on the summer solstice.

    Very cool bridges. Norcal - interesting that you live in Singapour. Wow!
    This bridge is not amazing or modern, but it's unique and a local landmark: the Duluth Lift Bridge.

    Duluth is North America's innermost seaport, regularly harboring ships 700+ feet in length.

    I hate bridges. I suffer from gephyrophobia, or the fear of bridges. Not much of a problem living in Phoenix, but whenever I visit family in Sacramento, bridges are unavoidable. I especially hate the Bay Bridge, and even though the odds are astronomical, every time I'm on that bridge the only thing I think about is the '89 quake and how I'm going to fall into the bay. Ugh.

    Living in Seattle for a few years was no bridge picnic either. The West Seattle bridge was ok, but the 520 floating bridge always gave me shivers. Nice views of the UW campus heading west, but whenever the wind was blowing, the water on one side of the bridge was white-capped, and because the bridge acted as a damn, on the other side, it was eerily calm.
