    What a beautiful bridge, Sheila! Incredible ironwork! Great capture of the intricate architectural detail!

  • Thanks, Gene. The original color shot of this view looks nice, I think, but the conversion brought out the brightness of the foremost ironwork. It is actually painted a brighter gray than the other parts, so you get this effect, in varying degrees, depending on the amount of light & the time of day.

    Thats a good shot of an icon of victorian engineering!

  • Thank you, Dog – icon indeed. I first got interested in Ironbridge (the town & the metalwork) when I bought a Merrythought bear here in Buffalo years ago. Part of the proceeds from the sale was going across the pond to Salop to help in the upkeep/restoration of the bridge. A little research told me that the town was a destination.

    I love this. It looks like it was made with a mechano set.

  • I saw your comment last night just before I turned in… I thought, he’s So Right! Now I see Tower Bridge meccanized. GREAT STUFF, Brock!! I love it. Cheers!! And thanks.
