Narrow


ABC is bought to you this week by the letter N


Deep in the Nature Reserve, Poyll Dooey, crossing the Sulby River is this cute little bridge. Guess what we call it? Yes The White Bridge. OK, that may not be the most interesting, creative name for it but who cares. It is as narrow as it looks, although I have seen a trail of motorbikes and cycles of all varieties cross over it relatively safely, thankfully it is free of all other traffic. Mainly pedestrians only, oh and the odd meandering duck waddling from one side to the other. Dog walkers frequent here too, though I'm not sure what the dogs think about the waddling ducks using it as a walkway. As for the escaped wallabies from the wildlife park, to my knowledge I don't believe they have yet to find use for this particular area and are still hiding out somewhere slightly less open. I did say wallabies and don't even get me started on the Manx Fairies. They should not be using this bridge..... they have their own named after them South of the island!


For less florid and saner posts for the letter N see here. Mrs N. see you next year.

What a lovely scene. The black and white treatment really gives it a sense of serenity and the composition is wonderful.

Queer little narrow bridge. Looks a bit lonely there....not even the company of color...

RuneE said...

I'm a sucker for monochrome, and with depth like this I take off my hat.

Love your style. You use subtle humor to make something interesting. Great shot too.

The Manx Fairies having their own bridge and stay off ours. Priceless.

Narrow is the Way...and few there are that find it! (The Bible)

Love your black and white.

brattcat said...

I think this is a bridge to hop over, preferably while whistling to keep the manx fairies away.

Carver said...

I love the photograph of this bridge. There is a sense of mystery about it.

Babooshka said...

Cheers all, yeah the humour I can't help. The photography just love what you can create from a very, very small town.

EG Wow said...

The White Bridge is indeed a narrow one, best to be walked or ridden over single file.

o it is lovely to have your brand of witticisms back on board.

Pam. said...

Why were you away away so long. Well funny. Learn so much from your photography.

Granny Smith said...

Beautiful photo! Your humorous commentary is priceless.

Ebie said...

But wide enough as a foot bridge! Nice capture!

Babooshka said...

Raving of a mad woman Gerald I'd say.

Jack and Joann said...

Thanks for coming by my blog.
And yes, black and white is striking.

Hello Babooshka, this is a great choice to illustrate the letter N. I'm glad you are back online. I have just found you were on Facebook :-)

How beautiful it is - Narrow, indeed! Surely a peaceful and gorgeous walkway.

lailani said...

hmmm, I know we DON'T have wallabies, but I wonder about Manx Fairies? :) Most likely not, but now I REALLY would like to visit your narrow bridge, quite magical sounding - or dangerous for ones health, gotta decide.

Gaelyn said...

It's a quaint little bridge. I'd like to see the fairies' bridge.

Cloudia said...

Excellent shots

You could have said the Island of the 'no tail cats' (though I know some have small stumps. But they are lovable

Mo said...

Love the low angle of this picture. Any white faeries hanging about here?

Erika B said...

Very clever for "N"! Beautiful shot.

That looks like a neat little bridge! I can't really imagine motorcycles crossing it - far easier to imagine the little people doing so, even if they do have their own special bridge elsewhere!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

Cezar and Léia said...

Amy said...

Black and white was a good choice for "white bridge." This is my first visit but it won't be my last!

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my "n" post!

jabblog said...

It's a beautiful little bridge though I wonder why the ducks use it. Perhaps they need a different perspective from time to time.

Virginia said...

Oh I'm thinking you had to get down and dirty for this one B. Bravo. I love this bridge. And let us see some duckies waddling over sometime.

Babooshka said...

V, I thin k I may actually have some duckies waddling there. Same bridge today and I have a batch of photos to upload of a lovely dog sitting acroos the noon day shadows. I did get down and dirty, always for the phot.

SandyCarlson said...

I like this very much.

Susie of Arabia said...

Love this composition and the B&W is perfect. Sorry I've been absent - had a super busy summer and couldn't blog hop for the past several months. Hope all is well and life is good.
