1800's Bridge, Glass Blocks and Get In Lane

"1800's Bridge" :- This is the a shot and capture of the old swing bridge at Southease in Sussex, England. The bridge was originally built in the 1880's and is apparently the second bridge to have been constructed at this location. The last time it was actually in operation and opened was in 1967 even though it still has its swing mechanism intact. The bridge has been given a Grade II listing.



"Glass Blocks" :- An interesting image of the glass window blocks that let natural light in on the stairs between floors of the Hotel Johnel in Hennef /Sieg, Germany. If you look carefully just to the right of center you can make out the spire of the neo-Gothic Parish church of Saint Simon and Judas. The tower stands at a height of 74 meters and is the highest church tower in the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis. Hotel room boredom induced me to go walkabout with the camera in search of visual treats which was when I stopped on the stairs and grabbed this image.



"Get In Lane" :- This is the pedestrian path and bicycle lane that's just on the Eastern edge of Brighton. To the left of this shot there's a large and deadly drop (hence the fencing) from the cliff top with Brighton Marina sprawling out way below at the bottom. The white line is an attempt to keep cyclists and pedestrians segregated but due to the technology in this day and age most don't even see it because they are too busy staring into their iPhones.
