Engines, Machines And Structures.

By LynneJoyce  
My title is from the dictionary definition of Engineering - "The branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures." Whilst knowing zilch about engineering I am fascinated by the visual appeal of "engines, machines and structures" and so took a large number of images on the subject whilst in Portugal.

We have a small of 15 here ranging from the wonderful modern bridge featured in the opener and V's 2, 4, 6, 8 & 10 to the beautiful Roman bridge featured in V3. The images of the modern bridge were taken through the windscreen while I was a passenger in the car. Don't you just love shutter speed priority?

V's 12, 13 & 14 show just three shots from loads that I took of the launch of a yacht in a repair yard. The rest speak for themselves, I hope.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

Wonderful set Lynne... The ones of the bridge are jaw-dropping considering you took it from inside a moving car...
You did good, I enjoyed viewing the set... Isabel GrinGrin

An excellent lead image leading us over the bridge and into 14 other intriguing images, Lynne.
Very well presented as always.

I am having problem here, Lynne, in that when I click on the versions, no image is appearing on screen: so I have been able to see the lead image only. Shall come back later and try again.
However what fine shot that lead image is, and almost symmetrical. The benefit of shutter priority obvious, a priority which I hardly ever use but should.
