Binondo Bridge

The Binondo Bridge spans the Pasig River close to where it flows into the port in Manila Bay.

 Manila, 2011

Linking with bridges from around the world at Sunday Bridges.

Is there a lot of construction going on there? I like cranes - there's something so promising about them.

Oops! Now, having looked again, I can see they're probably used for loading and unloading ships?

Great contrast! Lovely and peaceful nature against the 'scary' machinery in the background.

Love this composition Francisca. JM got there before me with the feelings I wanted to express!

I like the contrast between the water plants at the front and the cranes at the back, nicely composed photo

Francisca said...

@Janice(jabblog)... you are right, those are sea port cranes. The Manila International Container Terminal is right beyond the bridge. :-)

I love bridges, and am fascinated by seaports. I remember the first container crane I ever saw in Vancouver, and how impressed I was.

I too wondered what the red cranes are for. Glad I read the comments before I asked. :))

Looks like an industrial part of the city.

I like watching the container cranes at work in our own local San Pedro Port (Port of Los Angeles). Fascinating!

Interesting photo. Are those red structures for unloading cargo from boats? Also why is there so much vegetation floating in the river?

H said...

Isthe river really shallow in places, or is that all floating vegetation?

I like the contrast between the industrial gantries and the natural plant life.

This looks fantastic, especially when enlarge. So much details. Looks like a busy area.

This photo really needs to be enlarged to get a taste of all the detail in the shot...so much to see! I like the rather muted colors.

Haven't seen this place for a quite a long time.
