Sister Bridges

Build bridges, overcome differences...
Hold hands firmly, cherish the bonds...
Let the traffic go and flow on them.
Take good care, look after them ...
They cannot be built overnight.

Andy Warhol (7th st. bridge) & Rachel Carson (9th st. bridge)

Robert Cemente Bridge

I Love Bridges.
They connect ...
They unite ...
They overcome distances.

Roberto Clemente Bridge is one of the 3 sister bridges.
Yesterday I shared a night shot of the bridge. Day & night make a big difference, as you can see. I hope you like it.

My commitment is my love
My honor is thy word

Aap waaday karnay ki baat kartay ho
Hum ne ik waaday pe umer bitayi hai
Hum to waaday kisi se kiya kartay...
Kisi ki di zubaan pe jaan apni lutayi hai
(Urdu Poetry)
Picture & poetry by Shamsa Anwar

آپ وعدے کرنے کی بات کرتے ہو
ہم نے اِک وعدے پہ عمر بتائی ہے
ہم تو وعدہ کسی سے کیا کرتے

کسی کی دی زباں پہ جان اپنی لٹانی ہے

Love Locks, a French tradition

Pont de l'Archevêché
In 2010, they were removed because of their weight on the bridge but they immediately reappeared with sweetheart's name inscribed on them and the keys thrown in the river to symbolize the ever lasting love.

You still are ...

You are still ...
Running in my veins ...
Smiling in memories ...
Beating in my heart.
