Spain #68

There is another singular bridge in Bilbao....and not by Calatrava...and right next to the Guggenheim. We did not get to walk across it, as it was pouring rain when we got out of the museum....a cold, wet rain. And quite a dynamic looking bridge. And, aside from version images of the bridge are some images of Bilbao, including the flower covered "puppy".

Bilbao was an industriell and port city that it seems has remade itself, with the Guggenheim as the center of that remake. Interestingly, I have just finished reading a book about Cod...and Spain has a deep love for cod, particularly salt cod (you Brits do not eat salt cod) and that Bilbao was the center of the salt cold fishing, mostly on the Outer Banks off of Newfoundland.

If the bridge was by Calatrava, it would be the same like the previous... Wonderful collection, Peter! I like more the photos of the bridge, especially v.1 & v.2.

I love those fancy bridges--- somewhat similar to the new Tappan Zee into NYC---

Nice set of images Peter.
I think one of the buildings you photographed was used in The World is not Enough, when Commander bond had a disagreement with a Swiss Banker.

A good set of images Peter. V5 'A riot of colour' my favourite. On my visit there, many years ago, I never got the chance to visit the town. Just the Guggenheim then the airport. Your images have given me an insight into what we missed. Thank you.

There are some handsome building around, but I sure don't rate the Guggenheim as one of them - it even manages to be worse looking than the Scottish Parliament mess. Saw a pic of the Welsh Parliament building recently - that looks like a building site for industrial use. Good selection, Peter.
