59th street bridge

By kuipje  
"sung by Simon & Garfunkel 196 " This song is best known with the title "Feelin' Groovy".
As always I have a song as title with my photo's. Most oft the time I know what I want if I see the picture, that's not so hard. And most of the timeit's a song from way back when. But this time I knew it had to do with "bridge" of course the first thing comes to my mind is a "bridge over troubled water" but that's so common and I used it before not that long ago. It took me sometime to think and then I thought about t he title song from "A bridge too fare " ( a WW2 movie about the battle near Arnhem Operation Market) Great music, but then I looked further and heard "The 59th street bridge" Never knew about that title (or forgot) I listen to that song and thought I KNOW THAT SONG. Always liked it, makes me "Feelin'"Groovy".
...Walking along to Driebruggen (The Netherlands) in between the lakes, ditches and canals. I didn't count them, but bridges in all sizes (well not the very Big ones). You don't want to be in a hurry when you live here in the country side.
When a bridge opens for the boats to let through, take a snack or sandwich with you. It could take up to 10 minutes before it's your turn again. (or if you are lucky longer). Long live the country side where living is easy
Have a sunny, loving day

I think this is what many of us think of as Dutch countryside - very peaceful with lovely patterns in the sandbanks.
'Feeling Groovy' stirs up many happy memories of party nights in my early 20's!!!!

Wonderful looking set, and a great song Jos. Think Gershwin might have had V2 in mind when he penned ' Summertime '

Feeling groovy would make a super sound track Jos to accompany your old and new Reeuwijk project.

I love this photograph Jos with super patterns in the sand banks
