Number three in my Webb bridge series of three.

Don’t usually go in for the highly manipulated image thing but strangely I don’t have the same qualms about messing with something man made. Had never heard of this place until I found a few pics of it on the bubble and thought I’d check it out. Don’t really like duplicating the work of others either so I’ve used photoshop to give it a bit of a fresh perspective.

Webb bridge is in a really exclusive part of town next to a marina full of multi million dollar yachts. The design of the bridge is based on an aboriginal fish trap. On the way back to the car I passed a ‘car yard’ for luxury cars. There were only three cars in the showroom one of them had a ‘B’ with eagle wings sprouting from it, a brand I’d never come across before (a Bentley according to Steven Guy ). I thought it looked pretty nice for $39,900 and then my brain did a double take wait a minute… that’s not… holy crap it’s $399,000!?

Australia’s rugged landscape is an important part of my life and over many years I have explored some of the more remote parts of it on foot, ski, kayak and rope. I usually travel alone so I can take my time capturing the essence of these places without distraction. Life slows down and after a while I feel like I begin to merge with the land, nature takes me into her confidence and changes me. I hope you enjoy the fruit of these excursions.

    this is stunning, I have never seen anything like this before…as to the blurb on the Bentley WOW 399,000 is a whole lot of cash just for a car lol, im happy with my 2 door car – and it sure didnt cost that much haha

  • Hi Alex, thanks for droppin’ by, the fav’s and the spelling correction. Do you get 10x the car for 10x the price I wonder?

    Very much enjoying this web bridge series Travis – what an amazing structure and the way you’ve photographed and processed it is spot on for it I think. Beautiful and psychedelic.
    Blows my mind what people will spend their money on – $399K for four wheels and an engine that will spend most of its existence idling in traffic jams along with $5K Excels like mine. Sigh -the perversity of human desires.

  • Western consumerist excess in a world where so many lack the basic necessities of life to me seems kind of immoral, but were all guilty of it on one level or another I suppose. On the other hand if Bill Gates had one I wouldn’t find it immoral because his philanthropist credentials kind of outweigh the excess. Bit perverse all the same.

    well I suppose you get a few extra bonuses like leather seats etc, but i bet mine is more fuel efficiant, it costs $25 to fill and that lasts me 2 weeks :0)
