Photographer's Note

a momentary lapse of reason

I’m not commenting on myself tilting this pic but on a functionally less than likeable side of The Erasmusbrug a.k.a. the Swan on display here ;-).
This dashing bridge is fitted with an a-symmetrical ‘bascule’ bridge, which is shown in open position here. When this bridge opens for ship traffic on the Maas, there’s averagely some 10 minutes between the closing and opening of the barriers … And this is very long especially when you’re in a hurry.
And every time I have to wait I’m wondering why the barriers open a minute after closing of the bridge and the catanary section, why the bridge section carrying the tramway catenary closes 2 minutes after the bridge itself closes and why the bridge sometimes opens without a ship in sight.
Having your cam with you helps to alleviate the sometimes extreme impatience caused by the seemingly (I added this last word after Ebbe's crit) illogical operation of the bridge by the way ;-) - because the bridge deck is a thing of bold beauty.

Momentary lapse of reason is not the most appreciated of the Pink Floyd albums. It was released in 1987 on Columbia.

PCS2 tech: slightly cropped, adjusted levels, contrast, saturation and curves for the whole pic and some elements of it separately; applied the USM, added a frame added and saved for the web.
