Hmmm. The bridge must be much stronger than it looks to hold that BIG truck. Fascinating photo with all those bikes as a transportation contrast.

Francisca said...

Oh my... that is sure a heavy load for that little wooden bridge! What a colorful shot, JM!

It doesn't look like anyone is in a rush here.
Sort of a "Don't worry, Be happy" situation.
Great bridge though. MB

Indrani said...

So much of load, must be definitely a strong bridge. Very colorful too.

Kaori said...

What does the bridge go over? I like the faded colors :D

Luna Miranda said...

i could almost hear the creaking sound of this bridge as the truck passes by. great find!

Jacob said...

What a mash-up! Is the truck really on that bridge...looks like it might be off to one side. I can imagine tempers get a bit frayed trying to negotiate that mess and especially with the heat!

Great shot!

Thanks a lot JM for always visiting my blog.
You are so kind :)

Pat said...

That's quite a colorful bridge! I, too, was worried about the weight limit on it! That sure looks like a happening place!

Lily Hydrangea said...

this is so unusual & quite interesting to see. in NY, billboards are usually erected near big highways.

Louis la Vache said...

hee hee... «Louis» loves this: a blogger living in Portugal posts a photo of a bridge in Myanmar on a meme hosted by a blogger in San Francisco! This is part of the great fun of Sunday Bridges.

Sciarada said...

Buon lunedì JM, a rich picture: people, colors, transportation, nature, bridge and even advertising, you could put all this in a single photo, compliments!

Joanne said...

Que saudades disto...!

Serline said...

I guess the term "rush hour" is relative and differs greatly from place to place...

Pooch Morning Glory said...

it certainly does look "busy" ... altho much different from rush hour here near toronto. interesting that the billboard is in english.

That is an unusual looking bridge, looking very busy indeed. What a great capture! I've always been curious about Burma.
