Lovely contrast between the colours and forms.

Lucy, I like how your images can be so many different things if we didn't know from your title. Here I feel I could be behind prison bars staring out at a 'nothing' sky; or looking up waiting for the roofers to arrive!

Have you thought of posting a photo without title to see the best title response from your followers?

There was me thinking it was you under the bridge looking up at the sky - till I re-read the title!
I do like ambiguous pictures.

Lovely picture. And like any good water under any good bridge, you can't see it too clearly, or analyse it too deeply. All you can do is just let it go ...

I love the combination of red and grey and in this photo :)

Thank you, Hermes.

I'm also conscious that, in the contrast bewteen metal and water, there's a gulf between the safety of the bridge and the chilly danger below. The colours and shapes blend so beautifully when seen like this that one almost forgets. It's very peaceful standing there, meditative and mesmerising, even when people are rushing along at the same time with their shopping bags.

Gordon - that kind of guessing can be fun but it wouldn't be right on this blog.

This is a 'Just Looking' blog.

Sometimes (I think) we miss out on 'seeing' things because, in the normal way of a day, we are aware of an object's function. We have to be. Isolating them in a picture, gives them a chance to stand out in their own right.

Guessing about something would be to 'put it back' too soon.

Easy Gardener - That's a good idea. I'll have to go under the bridge and photograph upwards!

Hello Victoria

You are right, it is never clear. It changes colour, it goes up and down, but you can never see down into it . . .

Yet, a few hundred yards along, it meets the sea . . .

And where it meets the sea, the sea is clear. Very clear. Deep, but clear. You can see the crabs walking around, huge swathes of seaweed, everything.

And the sea is equally mesmerising.

Thanks Blossom. Such simple contrasts can turn out to be quite elegant.
