My nicest photoaccident.

This bridge is connecting Sweden ( Malmö ) to Denmark (Copenhagen) .

Nowdays there are no more ferries at all.

But we have a great looking BRIDGE.

This picture was captured with a Nikon F3, Kodak Tungsten 160ASA, film. (normally used at home)

From a Cessna. It is no fake at all, the colors just get amazing with that film.

And the grain comes with it.

Motorcycle ride over the bridge is here -->
