Bridges to Babylon by justeline Bridges to Babylon by justeline

Night of echoes, missing faces
missing steps of missing men
in a dream of grey old shadows
Smoking cigarettes with ghosts
on the bridge of broken leaves.

Kirlian Camera – Wasted Bridges


Shot exactly 35 minutes after Underneath the Veil, this place was our original destination and this view was exactly the view we were hoping for. At least for me that is. Easy to understand why upon seeing it I completely forgot to keep on nagging about why we didn’t linger a bit more at the previous location.

It was a magical morning indeed; everything was perfectly still and silent, except for the water calmly running past us. We were lucky enough to find a spot were the river was shallow enough to allow us to set up right in the middle of it. Looking back I think this was the last totally perfect magical morning of our Easter vacation. Right after that my tonsillitis kicked in and I started swallowing hot coals which significantly diminished the pleasure of the days to follow. However, looking back I definitely wish I could go back and do it all over again... even the painful bit.

For more information about the place have a look at *KirlianCamera’s equivalent.

Hope you enjoy your visit here!

PS This one is dedicated to the best guide I’ve ever had and the only man who ever dared to tell me “Shut up and move it” and not only lived to see another sunrise but actually got a thanks for it! Thanks Kozy! :slap:

I really love this, I mean I 'really' love this. It's absolutely stunning. The way the water gently ripples as it crosses over the rocks, the way the sun sets behind the bridge and casts a glow on the entire world it seems, and the way the bridge itself stands so strong, so firm, like an age old tree in the midst of a deep forest. Beautiful, really. This is one of my favorite pictures I've looked at in a while. Good Job.
