Looking for meanings in words, images and sounds
The bridge looks stunning in Black and White Paula.
Thank you, Colline. It is a beautiful and serene scene 🙂
Now that I’m back home, I may begin seeing what I can do with black and white, although your spectacular images make that a daunting thought. This one does indeed have a mysterious edge that takes it beyond mere reality, the reflections especially, for reasons I can’t pinpoint.

Hello Meg. I had a look though I don’t have a fb account. Happy to see there are more people that think alike :). I appreciate your compliment a lot. Feel free to take part whenever you feel comfortable, no pressure, no judgement. I am happy to have you here.
I love the stark contrast in this black and white! Great photo! 🙂
Thank you so much Linda 🙂
I’m out here. And normally I’d join in but already scheduled a post for Sunday. I love this shot, though, the play of shadow and light, the clarity, the smoothness of the water, the crisp, clean lines!
🙂 Your being here is a reward enough 🙂 Happy to meet your criteria, Emilio 🙂 I will drop by to see your post.
hey Paula, the exposure is perfect and the mood of the photo goes perfectly with the song selection which happens to come from one of my favourite bands. City landscapes go so well in monochrome, at least in my opinion.
True, city landscapes do well in b&w :). I am glad to hear you like Pink Floyd. Did you listen to Porcupine Tree too? Thank you for this marvelous review. xx
I love Porcupine Tree. I have seen them perform live and it is what really turned me into a fan.
Wonderful photo Paula. I called this London Bridge until we traveled there. Always learning. 🙂
😀 many have made the same logical mistake :). I liked so much being there on the bank and watching it at night. Thank you for the nice comment, Sue.
Beautiful photo Paula. I offer you my “listen to your mother” post if you want it. 🙂
Done 🙂 Thank you, Draco, really 🙂
Gorgeous shot. Looks unusually quiet and peaceful.
Yes, it does look unusually quiet. Happy you like it, Debbie. Thank you!
I’m with the others: gorgeous, beautiful, wonderful , great photo.
A great B&W photo for this Sunday.
Tusen takk, CG. Fin søndag!
Thanks Paula. I was planning to install my new computer this Sunday, but realized that it’s gotten damaged during transport.. Now I’ll have to ship it back and wait for it to be repaired… That’s a bummer.
A major one :(. I woke up to some drilling on the floor above me, but restrained myself from cursing and swearing. The weather is so lousy lately that I don’t even feel like going outside, but that may be the only reasonable option today. In the meantime I have prepared the post for Jo’s walk (scheduled for tomorrow). I don’t have enough material or time to walk with her every Monday, but will try to make my appearance twice a month. Hope the little one is fully recovered now and that you will do something fun today 😉
Here’s one of the things I’ve done so far this Sunday: http://artishorseshit.wordpress.com/2014/08/17/vigeland-3209/
This is so cool. I appreciate it Max. 🙂
Drilling sucks! The weather is lousy here too, but it’s clearing up now. Looking forward to see your post tomorrow.

E’ come un sogno!
🙂 conosci la canzone il sogno di Bocelli?
Certo! Mi piace molto!
Always…always!! A perfectly captured image. I love the way you tone your images!!
🙂 when you say you love the way I tone my images you are referring to monochrome tones? Thank you for your most welcome visit and comment, Arjun 🙂
All of them. You got a distinct style and touch!
Aww thank you my friend 🙂
My absolutely favourite Paula. Stunning shot hon! 😀 ♥ Big Hugs ♥
Thank you, sweetness 🙂 It means a lot. Hugs

Here’s my weekly offering, Paula – http://wp.me/p3ZISx-2Wc
I am touched. Next to Italy, France is my favourite country and this type of bridge my favourite structure 😀 What a capture!!! Bravo!
For you dear Paula! http://wp.me/a2dwKf-1BL
Oh, wow! That’s a stunning image, Paula!
From one great city to another 🙂 And great scene setting music!
I have tons of bridges but my B & W’s are not so hot (and it’s not Sunday) 🙂
😀 thank you very much, Jo. The visit to England is one of my best yet. Hugs
Not a ‘post’ but a small gift nevertheless 🙂
Eau de Paris!! Tu es geniale 🙂 I can’t thank you enough, Jo, for doing this research xx
Two seconds of clicking 🙂 I was looking for ‘free walks’ in Rome for Sue at the same time. Another success 🙂
Superb lighting in this spectacular shot Paula, it is such a beautiful bridge!
🙂 Thanks a bunch Patti dear 🙂
Absolutely stunning!!! I would love to see the colour version as well Paula.
Thank you very much Madhu 🙂 Here you have the colour one https://bopaula.wordpress.com/2014/06/19/thursdays-special-blue-hour/
I thought I had seen it before, but clicking on the tag only brought up the current post! I think I love the colour version even more Paula.
I think you are right to love it more 😀 I appreciate your checking it out 🙂 Thank you!
I totally missed-out on this one Paula. Again, very nice composition. I especially liked the angle you shot this from. It really helps communicate the largeness and grandeur of the subject. Have agree with Madhu, there’s something special about the colour version — I think it is that shade of blue.
Lindíssima foto!!! 😀
A famosa ponte em London 🙂
Não queria arriscar, mas foi a minha primeira dedução. ahahaha
