I do not think I could ever be a teacher, even though I am very patient and calm, Jeff, I have worked on Jet aircraft, steam and diesel Locomotives, press tools for car production, and Marine engineering, but you know the saying 'A Jack of all Trades & a Master of None' but I do take a nice bridge snap. LOL cheers scally.

Uncannily like the bridge on the A82 over Loch Leven at Ballachulish! I like of course.

Best wishes, Brian.

Brian what makes you think it is not this Bridge, because, (not always the case I must admit) I have clearly marked it accurately. :-)). I never planned this shot, I took it from 2 seats from the front of a coach, because it was empty of traffic? not something you see very often? Nice to have you visit, is the Olympic clock keeping good time, Best regards scally.

I've seen other photos of bridges like this in various places, Scally. Guess it must have been a popular design at some stage. I've not been into London for a while but I'm willing to place a bet with you that the clock is still spot-on. Take care.

Best wishes, Brian.

There,s one south of this down the coast, but that is a converted Railway bridge,but most of the bridges up in the wild north west was built by General Wade about 300 years ago, LOL best regards scally.

Scally

I am your forced student without any violence. LOL

I don't know that the meaning until I have learned it from the crystal ball. In chinese, we say: I have been equipped with various knives (figurative meaning= skills), but none of them are sharp.

If you are a Jack of all trades, you do snap other subjects like ladies, food, .....etc. :)

Cheers, Jeff

Beautiful geometric capture from a good perspective! Like! All the best Torsten

Harry Taggart on November 9, 2011

I like your Chinese metaphor Jeff. Simple and to the Point, (even if it is blunt! LOL). I find it hard to imagine how this can be written in Chinese Pictogram? I suppose I could sharpen one of my knives to etch out a special subject, if the request was made in Chinese, Cheers scally.

I won't not give you any request, Since you never treat me as a chinese. You thought I am an alien from Mars. One day in future, human is able to migrate to Mars. Just like mobile phone has been come out James Bonds' films into our daily life. People would called me as Martian Chinese. At that time, you must filfill my request. Ha! Ha!

Cheers, Jeff

Cheers, Jeff

Hi Rosalia, If you expand the map you will see it crosses Loch Leven a Fiord. Before they built it, traffic had to drive 50 Kilometres round the loch or queue for hours waiting to get on a ferry, Many thanks for your visit, Best regards scally .
