Binalbagan bridge [Sunday Bridges]

@ mirandablue
Taken from our road trip last week in the southern part of Negros island, my home province.  I don't know the name of this bridge but the billowing smoke at the background came from the chimneys of a sugar central called BISCOM in Binalbagan town.  Truckloads of cut sugarcane came through this bridge everyday during milling season. A new bridge replaced the old truss bridge but the metal railings remained.

I am so glad they left the old railings because they are so cool. Love the “v” shapes they make. The was you were able to compose and then capture the linear qualities of the bridge is excellent. Great shot.

Today, a truck dropped bales of hay on our Auckland Harbor bridge. Traffic was at a standstill. I was late for work.

Well built strong bridge. The smoke in the background turns it into an interesting photo.

A nice bridge you got there. Is it the older one ? For see another road bridge on the right, for oncoming traffic.
