I believe a drawbridge qualifies as a bridge! This one comes to you from Rennes, France. This is all that remains of the old fortifications which were built in the 1400s. I don't think they've changed much over the years. Photo taken in 2003.

Benches in the Saint Thomas Square in Rennes, France. I lived several years in this beautiful city and I still miss it. I believe this photo was taken sometime in 2003, but I can't be certain of the exact month. It looks like it must have be winter or late fall. I will be showing you scenes from this city all week.
