Photographs: Webb Bridge at sunset

On Wednesday, I went with Diana to look at the Webb Bridge, west of the (Melbourne) city centre. Unfortunately, I was brain dead due to lack of sleep and an unexpectedly busy lunch shift. When I reviewed the photographs, I found many areas which I would normally explore, but had failed to even notice them. I also noticed many dodgy compositions- skewed horizons, skyscrapers straddling the frame’s edge….

I was tempted to upload a close-up photo of the Porsche's wheel assembly, but anyone who is interested would already know what a ventilated brake disc looks like. So I'll not waste bandwidth.

And this is the Webb Bridge, a concrete bridge with fancy metal latticework enclosing the deck. Its designers D. Marshall (architect) & R. Owen (artist) say,

"From afar, it is perceived as an object that becomes, in turn, a place of action and transition as one uses it. […] As an object, it appears as a delineated structure, a sensuous volume, light and linear. Space is seen as atmospheric, dynamic and transitional."

What? Sounds like throwing a lot of nifty words into a spinning blender.

Regardless, the bridge is a wicked structure.
