jones bridge


This is the Jones Bridge at night (note: photo is from my archive, i've already posted here a different view of this bridge). This bridge was once hailed as the queen of the bridges crossing the Pasig River. Jones Bridge was named after William Atkinson Jones, a member of the U.S. Congress and chairman of the Insular Affairs Committee who sponsored the Philippine Autonomy Act in 1916.

Oh how time flies, it's December already and as always the 1st of the month is celebrated in the DP community and today's theme is about bridges. Please check out the 125 bloggers who participated and get to see different bridges around the world.

The water under this bridge just flows on, doesn't it, just as the old saying has it.

Kate said...

The reflection of the lights and the long distance shot of the bridge make this a creative shot.

I really like those lights. That adds a dimension that would not be there in the daylight. Nice photo.

Nice history, and I like that long blue light.
