The Humpback Bridge

This is the approach to The 'Humpback Bridge'

It has featured in my life since as far back as I can remember.
As a small child I used to be lifted up to see the canal below where ducks and swans reside.
As a teen it was the rendezvous point for friends and boys......
It has served as a shelter from heavy summer rain when caught out for a walk..
I have fished in its shadow with net and jam-jar for Sticklebacks and tadpoles

A lot further back it was the place my father and his friend first spoke to my mother and her twin sister, asking them out to a local dance. My dad had chosen the twin that didn't smoke....therefore my existence is due to a nicotine habit!

I went for a walk the other day, alone to clear my head and took some pictures......I love this one
