Theme Day ~ Looking Out

 
Above: Looking out at the traffic

Coming back from brunch one Sunday afternoon across town, I took the 'tourist' drive through pastoral hills and greenery, the Chandler Highway aka Tourist Drive 2. Traffic was at a standstill - approaching this bridge, I realised why. Half the bridge was blocked due to emergency road work around an electricity pole at the other end. What was a two lane bridge was now a one lane bridge - workman holding a "Stop" sign stood to direct one way of traffic. Looking out the side mirror to see the traffic build-up behind me, I took this photo. The iron bridge crosses the Yarra River in the Kew/Alphington area.

Edit: Many thanks to Andrew of High Riser for pointing out an error. The bridge is called the Chandler Bridge and the building of it was originally completed in 1891. To avoid confusion, I have removed the incorrect data which was in the original post.


Today's quote: Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else ~ Angelina Jolie.

Hi, just to answer your question at my blog, that spire is actually the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill.

It is not a good sign when you are driving and you have the time and ability to look out and take a photo.

Oh, your blog looks very different. Now, the Chandler Highway Bridge was built in 1977? I think that would be 1887. http://highriser.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/walking-outer-circle-day-1.html

That's a COOL photo!! I like the way it shows the line-up behind - nice that you're at the front of the queue? The quote is a bit surprising to me, though - how can you enjoy the moment if you're always wishing you're somewhere else?? But that's just me ...
