j'aime bien la vue sous les ponts de trains/métros, cela me fait penser a certains endroits de New York (comment ca, je suis obnubilé par NYC ;o) )

The supports are all so orderly. They make for an interesting pattern. Not quite as nice as church architecture, but interesting nonetheless.

Not sure why, but I really like these type of shots.

Buck said...

I can feel the weight of all that steel! That is a big bridge!

Nice patterns.

Theanne said...

I'm always interested in what the underside of a bridge is like...I like this one!

That is a seriously large railway bridge. I'm used to single-track ones in western Canada, where trains come by so seldom that young people walk on railway bridges in order to cross small (and not-so-small) rivers.

That is alot of steel. Not sure I would feel too comfortable being underneath it.

Le coté sombre des villes..

It looks like a solid construction Ciel, I think it will be around like all the other structures for a very long time. It's always interesting I think to see the underside of bridges, they are all so different.

Nicely intersecting lines (girders) which give the impression of strength...and I hope they are strong! What goes on under bridges in your town. You don't want to know what goes on under bridges in Florida.

Re your comment on the tiger: I dunno what's between his paws; that's why I didn't mention it...some kind of little critter.

Re your comment on Canadian geese: No stats. We're just wanting all Canadians to go home so we can get our golf courses and highways and restaurants back! ;-)

It's in great shape in contrast to the ones you see in US cities. It's very humbling to stand under one of these with trains overhead.

A nice view of the underside. :)

Must be noisy there:)

I'm with Olivier, also like to see bridges from below and this one is great.

VP said...

Interesting pattern, unusual picture, I like it very much!

Andrew said...

It's a lovely thing to stand under bridges... and listen...

Loree said...

Interesting shot. The ironwork of the bridge is really interesting.

EG CameraGirl said...

The undersides of bridges are often very interesting!

Gosh, for some reason I never like going under close overpasses like this. Interesting looking beams though. And, I like that you can see cars and stores on the other side.
