I took this image in 2009 with the Canon ixus, this footbridge used to wobble when people walked on it to cross the river.

Reminds me of when I arrived in Inverness about 6 am on an overnight train from Edinburgh in 1966. Times have changed since then.

What a neat footbridge! Such nice pictures of it. And my goodness, the bridge wobbled!? That would be so interesting to cross! :D

I noticed that you said you use a point and shoot camera! Yayh for point and shoot cameras. lol That is what my kids and I use, too. I have a Sony Cybershot, my son has an older version of a Nikon Coolpix that used to belong to my dad, and my younger daughter has a Panasonic Lumix! :D

Brilliant photos! Any person walking on that bridge is a most couragious one in my opinion! Have a great beginning of a new week!

I like this elaborate bridge made for pedestrians. It must be nice to be able to cross the river without cars whizzing by.

It seems we have a lot of footbridges this time around. This one is particularly lovely spanning such a wide river. A very charming scene that seems every-day for you but not so for those from the 'colonies' where the normal cityscape has neither the antiquity nor that old world charm except in a g=few places.

@ JayLeigh: LOL, small world. My Father sold the Sony and Panasonics on Ebay, the Sony was a DSLR camera and he now has a Sony Nex which is a Point and Shoot but its kind of a hybrid between a P.S and a DSLR. Had a look at this old Canon the other day, its viewfinder is tiny compared to the Coolpix one, I agree that there is nothing wrong with a Point and Shoot style camera, far lighter and easy to use especially for travel.

@ Arija: I think Urban areas have there charm too, and are just interesting photographically, but I understand that some architecture can be quite ugly at times and that the countryside is a refreshing change.

@ Lesley: Yes that was better, its just you could feel the other peoples footsteps as you walked on it and it was quite disconcerting.

Thanks for visiting everyone, hope you have a great week.
