Those Who Cross Glass Bridges


 There is a saying that, “those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.” While it does not officially say anything about crossing glass bridges, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that those opting to cross a glass bridge should probably not take any rocks with them for the journey. 
Glass bridges are very polarizing too. Some people love them and some people hold on for dear life and curse the day the man who invented the bridge was born. Honestly. It’s just one of those things. Some people just love the idea of a glass bridge was others are like, “what the #$%^ were you thinking? Making a bridge of glass? Really?” I’m here to say, well, they are real. This is one, this is what they look like and they are quite popular in China. For whatever reason, the Chinese love their glass bridges. 
While in Guilin, I had opportunity to photograph the glass bridge over the river at night while a passing boat made waves in the water. I opted to pass on walking over the bridge but I did manage to photograph it. Here is it in all its glory. (It’s the kind of purple thing in the middle here.) 
If I ever go back, I might walk across it. OK, I did say, “might.” Probably not, but you never do know, right? 
Glass bridges. An interesting concept. A very interesting concept from the comforts of the shoreline. Maybe not so much from the middle of the bridge itself but, you know, maybe if you are up for it. 
Until next time…
