I read somewhere that one of the biggest mistakes photographers make is thinking that once they have taken a few shots of a subject that's it, done and dusted. When in fact if the subject is worthy it then should become a challenge to take different views of said subject :) I know I would never be able to resist taking shots of the Matagarup Bridge each time we visit, it is superbly photogenic. The shot above was through the window of the City View Cafe in Optus Stadium, next time I'll take a city view :)
The 72metre high 400metre long bridge was designed in such a way that it is climbable and the climb part of the Zip-Climb experience is up and climbing, zippers will have to wait for a few more weeks. Below the young lady getting ready to take a group up followed by the actual climb. You can see there are two viewing levels midway up the climb and then at the apex of the bridge, you can clearly see the zip lines to the foreshore in two shots below..
The design of the bridge is open to interpretation, the one I see clearly in the shot below is of two flying swans, but it could also be seen as swimming dolphins or the Wagyl, the 'Noongar manifestation of the Australian Aboriginal mythological Rainbow Serpent, a snakelike Dreaming creature responsible for the creation of the Swan River'. I like that idea also. The bridge is lit up at night by LED lights, I will definitely have to go back for that shot! You can see more fabulous shots of the bridge HERE, I hope the link works, I never can tell with this new blogger situation :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..
