    Time for a change

    My new avatar is the railway bridge in my hometown lit up at night.

    It might be my vision but it's a little hard to recognize the avatar as a bridge. The small size of our avatars require a contrast particularly between light and dark colors.

    That's why I posted this big picture. Beautiful isn't it?

    The bridge was built in 1847 and still takes modern rail traffic all day.

    Cool, a bridge from the past to the present, and indefinitely into the future.

    VERY nice!

    Nice. Modern materials allow amazing construction but somehow they never capture the elegance of the older ones and I suspect they were far more impressive feats of engineering - I mean, how do you lay bricks upside down? LOL

    Love it, and it is a RAINBOW of colours too, which has great resonance in the U.S. right now! Beautiful!

    Cool! Beautiful. Inspiring. Kind of reminds me of a Roman aqueduct. Both are amazing feats. How did they do that it in 1847? Is it concrete? Brick or stone and mortar? If concrete, I wonder whether they used steel reinforcement back then.

    Mesmerizing image. The small thumbnail makes it look like something coming out of a sci-fi book. Nice!
