Bali Stone Bridge

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I was going through my archives when I came across this picture of this stone bridge.  This picture, scanned from a slide, was a drive by photo taken from a van as we traveled through the countryside of Bali back in 1987.  There is something about this bridge that I find to be very appealing.

i love archive diving, and i just lost the last year of archives which makes me sad. this is a pretty bridge.

Karin said...

It is an interesting bridge! It's fun to archive dive and go down memory lane! I wonder if there's run-off underneath it in the spring or rainy season. We've got a bridge where the creek underneath it often is a dry bed, but in spring watch out!

The arch has a lovely curve.

What a beautiful bridge. And what an amazing drive-by shot. Good work.

I can't help but wonder,how many people worked very hard to build such a bridge.

Ginny said...

Well, the arch underneath, it seems perfectly shaped and rounded, but you are right, George. There is something I can't put my finger on...it's actually rather haunting.

Love those old bridges.

Lynda said...

It's beautiful and seems to compliment the scenery rather than looking like something man built in the middle of God's gorgeous creation. I am glad you shared this with us.

Linda said...

Really beautiful, George.

Gina Gao said...

I loved Bali.
Can you imagine how much work it took to build this bridge with so many little stones??
Lovely shot.

Linda said...

At first glance I thought it was on the Blue Ridge Parkway! Lots of stone bridges there... so pretty.

And there is a beautiful Roman arch. My favorite trout stream has a similar arch made of limestone. The flyfishing is always good...:)

It REALLY is beautiful! I can understand your attraction to it. I love bridges.

Craver Vii said...

I agree with you about the bridge. I find bridges fascinating, the same way other people are enthralled with trains.

It reminds me of how angles and curves in geometry befuddled me but architects just get it right.
