under the bridge


found in the annual purge of the photo album, not my usual subject matter


the underside of Granville Street Bridge, the section over Granville Island


maintenance repairs and upgrades for earthquake resistance


made me think of a few ‘bridge’ quotes:

I am seeking for the bridge which leans from the visible to the invisible through reality.
– Max Beckmann

We will burn that bridge when we come to it.
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

London Bridge is broken down, my fair lady
– Henry Carey: Namby Pamby

Added Feb.2, 2014: How timely! The Vancouver Sun has posted an article and many photos of the Granville Bridge’s opening to great fanfare 60 years ago. The bridge was built above an earlier Granville Bridge that had spanned False Creek since 1909. The 1909 bridge had replaced a third Granville Bridge which was built in 1889, when Vancouver was only three years old.
