Kurilpa Bridge at night

Here's Brisbane's newest bridge in all it's glory. Some say it's like ships' masts bobbing in the breeze, others say it's ugly and far too busy. Personally, I'm a fan. Not just from an architectural point of view but also because it provides a car-less link between West End and the city.... with plenty of pit-stops along the way to admire the view.

well, I must admit it doesn't look too bad here at night, Cara...but I am really of the "too busy" variety...sorry...too many bridges..I must be getting old!

There does seem to be a lot of bridges, but Paris has bundles of bridges. This structure reminds me of roads and bridges scattered throughout Melbourne where the purpose of the bridge is augmented with a nod to artistic flair. Once you get the hang of it, it is quite endearing.

We in Sydney tend to dig tunnels instead ...

I love the night time shot. And, I like the bridge.

I agree it looks like masts all askew. Very interesting foot bridge and nice to provide a route for non motorized vehicles. I think I like it.

It reminds me of a busy port. And I think it looks fantastic at night. Though I'm not sure whether I'd feel the same if I saw it during the day.

I love the design, lights and unexpected "ship masts" on it! Bravo!

Reminds me a bit of something in London, might be the Millenium Bridge. Looks good lit up.

Beautiful shot Cara! I love this bridge. I just don't like the cyclists on it that whizz past at 80km/hr - they are deadly.

The one in london is probably the fairly new hungerford foot bridge... That looks great lit up at night, especially against the background of the old industrial style train bridge it's attached to...

Nice work. A much better shot than my attempt while walking past.

I reckon the key to appreciating this bridge is to look through the masts rather than directly at them.

Hated it at first. Now I love it, especially viewing it through the big windows at GoMA - and especially after seeing this gorgeous photo.
