Sunday Bridges - Wibbly Wobbly

A view from beneath the millennium bridge. Looking at it from this angle reminds me of how it twisted in the Harry Potter movie.

The pedestrian bridge crossing the Thames between the Tate Modern and St Paul's was built for the millennium but closed almost immediately for modifications to its unstable movement. It was quickly nicknamed the wibbly wobbly bridge which has stuck and continues to be refereed to by locals.

Check out the other Sunday Bridges hosted by Louis Le Vache.

I'm thinking I would never be able to trust the wibbly wobbly bridge to cross it. My imagination gets the better of me, I', afraid. BUT I LOVE your photo!

Love the name "the wibbly wobbly bridge" that is exactly what it looks like too. Fabulous shot once again.

«Louis» thanks you for your nice comment about his Sunday Bridge image.


He got this shot early one morning - around 0500 with a full moon setting behind the clouds and the bridge. It is the same morning he got this shot.

The Millennium Bridge offers some stunning photo opportunities, from either side. I personally find it a great part of London for chilling out and watching the world going by...

One day I shall enjoy to visit this bridge, it is such an architectural beauty.

Marvy...it is sooooo beautiful at night. I have a very fuzzy, but treasured night shot of it from my one and only day and 1/2 in London in Sept. 2008. I loved it so.

Tash said...

Geez, sorry, got carried away with memories, I think your shot of it is just grand.
