Sometimes you can photograph an ordinary bridge and get some good shots. This bridge goes over the Raritan River, and on top is Route 18, a busy thoroughfare that takes you from New Brunswick, through East Brunswick, and eventually leads down to the Jersey Shore area.
This is the top of the bridge. I liked the colorful leaves growing on the fence.
Unfortunately, graffiti is too common a site on bridges in our area.
The bottom of the bridge with the Raritan River: the bridge is at the end of our walk that started at Rutgers Gardens.

Excellent contribution to Sunday Bridges, Leora.
(«Louis» agrees with you about the blight of graffiti…)
Looks like bridge architects go to the same school. One of Auckland’s bridge is like yours. Where are you?
New Jersey, USA
i love how you showed us the different angles of this bridge. i like the last shot.
Another interesting meme. Wondering whether I’ll have the time to post.
I don’t like graffiti much either but somehow they look quite acceptable in your photo.
Louis does this bridge meme every week! So you can join in whenever your bridge post is ready.
Oh I really like the first one.
Oh, good, that’s my favorite, too. I really like how the simple arches create an interesting composition. Kudos to the engineer.
Your page is fabulous, very interesting, congratulations! 🙂
And thanks a lot for this set of pictures, the bridge is wonderful and I love the different angles that you show here.
Hello Leora! Nice perspectives on your bridge. Like others I enjoy the angle of the first shot.
[Bare-footed children in the Philippine countryside don’t worry me half as much as the street children in our urban centers who beg along the roads among the cars all day. It’s a sad situation that does not get enough notice. Thanks for caring.]
That is very sad, when children have to beg.
I really like all the arches and angles in your first photo 😀
The arches are truly a work of art and you have captured them very well. I do not like that people graffiti public structures, but I try to looks past their canvas and appreciate the art.
I love the different angles of the bridge shown in your photos. Too bad about graffiti, but sometimes, they could be seen as a work of art.
What great shots! I love the first and last one, and the great perspectives on those two!
Thanks to your previous photo post of this bridge I found out about this place and Johnson park. I now go there often to feed animals and sometimes take pictures too:)
Nice to hear from you, Dhaval… glad you found some nice places to visit in Central New Jersey! We went to the East Brunswick Butterfly Park on Sunday, and I took some photos there, too. Another pretty place to visit.
