That Mighty Mac and Cape Cod Canal are my favorites on this list so far.

But I have to give my love to where I left my heart:

Sydney Harbour Bridge linking the CBD of Sydney to the CBD of North Sydney:

and of course, my notorious picture I use for everything Australian:

And, while not so famous as it's brother only a mile or two away, the Anzac Bridge over one of the many coves in Sydney brings back a lot of memories:

I've walked the distance of both and the views of the city are amazing from them. They are as much national icons to Australians as the Golden Gate Bridge is to Americans.

While I don't have any pictures of them, Pittsburgh and Jacksonville have some gorgeous bridges along their bisecting rivers, especially at night. Maybe I'll try to snap a shot or two of Jax's while I'm in Florida this weekend.

If you own the rights to this pic I'd love to buy a single license, blow up and frame, this is an incredible picture, better than about any commercial version I've seen. Completely awesome.

I'm including this googled pic until I can load my own later, of MAM's pedestrian bridge. Sorry to twist the theme a little here, but it is an incredible "bridge" none-the-less.

I do own it, you probably got my PM by now.

Sydney has a couple of those ped bridges like that, one I particularly like is near the Rocks. Googled:

These are very inspiring photographs! Thanks to everyone who has posted:)

To my knowledge no other city is as defined by it's bridges as Jacksonville. The Dames Point Bridge is clearly the most magestic bridge in the city. But my personal favorite is the Main Street Bridge AKA the Blue Bridge. It's the smallest and oldest of Jax's existing bridges, and the city has been painting it a delightful blue for many years.

I wish I had some pics to share. Perhaps some other member might have some to post.
