Ooh, very nice angle. Girls should probably not wear very short skirts when walking across this bridge :D

Dina said...

You can get a bit dizzy walking on such things, especially if they are high.

A fun photo though.

I like all the angles in this shot. Good indoor bridge, JM.

I am sooo glad it's not my job to wash those windows. :)

I was in a building in Scottsdale earlier this year that had a glass bridge like this. It's an interesting architectural addition.

I hope that the architect and engineer knew what they were doing.

In answer to you question on our Viva la Voyage site, yes, we have been to the pyramids at Teotihuacan outside Mexico City. Julie hurt her ankle climbing the Pyramid of the Sun.

«Louis'» acute acrophobia would rapidly engage if he walked across this bridge! Be that as it may, «Louis» thanks you for your contribution to Sunday Bridges!

This is why women should wear trousers in public places ;-)

VP said...

A very cool bridge, I like it!

JM said...

@Kaori and Tinsie: The bottom glass is not transparent! :-))

Genie said...

Beautiful architectural lines, JM, which you captured so well in your photo!

Jarart said...

Very interesting bridge.

Merisi said...

Very interesting modern bridge!

The contrast between the old and the new is very stimulating,
from Belém Tower to the modern concert hall.

Jacob said...

I think every photo of the cultural center that you've posted shows beauty and creativity. I would love to visit their sometime. This is very well composed, too!

These scare me, it just seems wrong, walking on glass! :) We have one that extends out over the Grand Canyon, not sure if I'd walk out there or not! Anyway, you do come back with great shots of your musuems.

Dina said...

The bottom is not transparent? You could have fooled me. Well, that makes a lot of difference.

Halcyon said...

A modern bridge. I really like it!
