Pero's Bridge

By jacomes
Another pair from my Bristol archive,V1 is a mono version.

Pero's Bridge is a pedestrian bascule bridge that spans St Augustine's Reach in Bristol Harbour, It is named after Pero, also known as Pero Jones, who lived from around 1753 to 1798, arriving in Bristol from the Caribbean Island of Nevis in 1783, as the slave of the merchant John Pinney (17401818) a sugar merchant and plantation owner.

Fabulous reflection, and I want colour here.
There's a separate image to be had from the lower part of the frame, flipped vertically...

Thank you Moira. I did take the reflection as a separate shot, but later in the day and different framing, and light.

Lovely clarity James and for me too, it has to be colour.

Don't listen to Moira Wink she is intent on sending my eyes wonky, she does it all the time and I have to have a long lie down with my eyes closed Wink.....only joking James, in reality, a flipped reflected frame would look really good as the shapes are lovely and very different, almost like a couple of ear trumpets.

What an interesting design - like two torches for open flames, of the type used for carrying the Olympic flame.
I am convinced Moira sees the world upside down...rumour has it her favourite foods are upside-down cakes and puddingsWink

The horns are counterweights for the lifting section of the bridge, ingenious design isn't it? More detailed info here and here

Has to be colour James, turquoise and orange work so well together Grin
The colour version is much stronger and gives a very good impact on the eye the reflections are brilliant.
