Repairing Bridges - Broreparasjon


Bridges are like human relationships - they need constant maintenance and some times even repair.

------

Broer er som forhold mellom mennesker - de trenger stadig tilsyn og av og til reparasjon

I wish our I-5 Bridge was just going to be repaired. . . instead we are considering replacing it with a 9 lane bridge which includes Metrolink lane and a walking portion. We have a walking portions now. Too many people work in Portland and the traffic jams every morning and evening. The new bridge will have a higher span so it won't have t be lifted fr tall ships which I will miss.

But I digress. . . YOUR bridge is so pretty! I am glad the repairs will be the connection to a future for it.

My :bridge" is up now also.

Tricky work for the repairmen. I wouldn't be able to take the height. Great photos.

I like your comparison to human relationships. Very true.
Our Vincent Thomas bridge is getting a new paint job & they've got it covered up to make sure the paint chips don't fall into the water. http://palosverdesdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/07/art-on-monday-wrapped-up-tower.html

Ref Håvamål:
Omveg er det til utro venn
om ved bygdevegen han bor;
men til sann venn fører snarveger,
om han er langt av lei.

og
Har du en venn og tror vel om ham, søk ham ofte opp;
forkrattet gror, og graset står høyt, på øde, utrådt veg.

Maintenance is mandatory

A most important job, whether for a bridge or a relationship. Great shots!

Anne-Berit said...

Ja,det er sant,man må vedlikeholde både broer og vennskap.Staselig bru!

Ivar Ivrig said...

Spenstige bilder. Ja, noen må jobbe under slike forhold også. Og det er bra for oss som bruker broene rundt omkring :-)

John said...

Ja alt trenger litt service en gang i blandt. Flotte bilder som vanlig.

Pernille said...

Vedlikehold er viktig i my! Ingen ting som funker uten vedlikehold. Nydelig bro fra deg. Si meg har du vært på klatretur for å få bildene eller har du innmari mye zoom? Kjempeflotte bilder fra flotte vinkler:)

Perfect commentary - and what a great shot the first one is, Rune.

Nice pics and I'm lucky I don't have to climb that high to do my work.. Geocache is a game you play with a GPS, looking for caches hidden everywhere by other "geocach-people". There is a link in my blog (in the bridge post) to the Geocache home page. ((Tur orientering i moderne fasong med gps)).

Ah, we saw a bridge tower wrapped completely in--sell, something--looks like tedlar--thin plasticky stuff they make mailing envelopes with. We wondered what might be happening inside.

We will be back that way before the next bridges between... maybe I can get an after shot.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Wise words to go with your photos, Rune. Repairing bridges isn't usually easy, is it?

ANNA-LYS said...

You certainly are a wise man, RuneE!
