Whilst looking through recent photos I realised that I have unintentionally captured a few contrasting bridges.

Tower Bridge, London opened in 1894.

Blackfriars railway bridge, London, originally opened in 1886 but has recently been refurbished and is now the worlds largest solar powered bridge with the railway station occupying the full length of the bridge. There are stunning views from the trains. Station and bridge re-opened in 2012.

Further afield, The Peace Bridge, Londonderry, Northern Ireland was opened in 2011.
