Photographer's Note

There's not much of interest to photograph in Orense except this bridge. I've visited it a few times since it opened and always found it difficult to shoot. However, this time I went there knowing what I wanted, maybe due to the fact that I'm shooting more and more graphic style photos. Thankfully the sun and sky were there to help.

The Millenium Bridge was designed by the architect Alvaro Varela and the engineer Juan M. Calvo and opened in 2001. It spans the river Mio in the centre of Orense. The construction of this bridge took traffic off the old roman bridge turning that into a pedestrian bridge.

Il n'y a pas trop de choses intressantes photographier Orense l'exception de ce pont. Je l'ai visit plusieurs fois depuis son ouverture et l'avais toujours difficile photographier. Mais cette fois je suis alle en sachant ce que je voulais faire, possiblement d au fait que je me penche plus sur le graphisme dernirement. Heureusement le soleil et ciel y taient pour donner un coup de main.

Le Pont du Millenium a t l'oeuvre de l'architect Alvaro Varela et l'ingnieur Juan M. Calvo et a t ouvert en 2001. Il traverse la rivire Mio au centre d'Orense. Grce ce pont, le traffic a pu tre dtourn du vieux pont romain qui est dsormais rserv aux patons.
