A bird's eye view on the Eiffel bridge

Hi folks, I'm in Porto, Portugal, home of the port wine!
Gustave Eiffel not only built a tower, but he was a bridge builder as well.  The Don Luis the 1st bridge, here in Porto.
I also decided to christen the seagull... He didn't fly away when I came with my camera, he seemed to want to be on the picture. So, birdie, I name you Gustave. Live long and prosper.

I like the bridge's style. Gustave looks confident and sure of himself.

Excellent photo! The bridge does look like the tower.

I envy you! I love port wine. As a former Lutheran pastor, we used port wine in our services. I always got to finish the chalice. Sometimes, that almost finished me. :) Love this photo, too. I'm sure I knew Eiffel built bridges but I'd forgotten. It does remind one of the tower - laying on its side. The bird, though, that's what makes this shot so great. Gustave knew you were a good guy and that he'd get some international notoriety.

By the way, I also go by the name of Jacob Anson - a pen name and that's what shows up on Google. Just thought you should know.
