Serpentine Bridge in London, England

Today’s bridge on a Sunday could almost fall under the street art category too. But just almost.

Serpentine Bridge, London, EnglandThis is Serpentine Bridge, the bridge that marks the border between Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park in London. While the bridge in itself is really pretty with its many arches, what I liked best was the sign in which someone had switched the word „Danger“ to „Angel“. It put stories in my head, and images of falling angels, and of soaring angels who would come to save their falling companions. Maybe it was because I had just walked by the Peter Pan statue and decided that I never wanted to grow up, like Peter, that I felt transported into a fairytale world by this sign. I think being reminded of unearthly creatures, of angels and fairies and pixie dust, never hurts.

If you have read My Mission statement, you know why I love bridges. To me they are the most universal symbol of connection, of bringing people together and overcoming anything that may separate us. I want to present to you pictures of bridges that I really love in places that I really love on my blog every Sunday. If you have a picture of a bridge that you would like to share with my readers as a guest post, feel free to contact me!

  1. I love that England reminds me of all that magical stuff too! This definitely looks like it says „angel“ doesn’t it.

    I work in the house that JM Barrie was living in around the time he wrote Peter Pan. In fact, judging from the photographs, my desk is exactly two stories below where his desk was. No doubt he saw neither the National Theatre nor London Eye when he looked out of the window!

      Oh I hope working in such a place inspires you every day, Mandy! I should read Peter Pan again.
