DP Theme Day: Bridges


Hello! Here I am for theme day. The past month has been crazy but all is good. This is my contribution to our theme. The bridge that links the famous KLCC Twin Towers. The bridge is open to visitors 6 days a week (closed to the public on Monday) for a paltry sum of RM8/USD2.22/EUR1.78. Cheap and cheerful. Situated on the 44th floor, you get a grand view of the towers upclose and the spectacular view of Kuala Lumpur. That is, if you come visit when the Indonesians aren't burning the Sumaterans forrests and clogging our air with the muggy haze. This is a major problem for us.

I had wanted to go up and take a shot from the bridge but I kept finding myself there on Mondays. Oops. So, the next best thing, take a shot from ground level and twist the perspective. Hope you find it appealing.

December 1st is World Aids Day. All I want to say is, Play Safer.

We have 122 cities participating today. Go have a look at all our bridges. Have a great weekend everyone.

Good to hear from you again, even if it's only one day a month! Interesting choice; we call them skyways here in MN, bridges that link buildings to one another.

I've visited KL once a few years ago, saw the Patronas Towers & was agog. A shame they didn't do trips up to the top.

Interesting bridge - so many nice photos, today. This one connecting people from one building to another. I bet there are some spectacular views to be seen from this walkway bridge.
