Around Turnham Green bridge

~ ~
Bridges in London almost always contain a life and look of their own underneath, that may or may not be contiguous with the way life and surroundings look beyond them. The grungy, grimey underside of Turnham Green bridge that is located in what is otherwise a very posh (and therefore well-maintained) locality of Chiswick is no exception.




Trains thunder past overhead, while water from the rain earlier in the day drips down on the unsuspecting people below. No wonder that people hurry through - they do not stroll or stop.

Life just beyond looks starkly different.

Nice! In mumbai, people do business under bridges. and also live there, protected from sun or rain.

Yes - in certain parts of Delhi too. The underside of bridges also serves as shelter for two-wheeler riders and assorted street vendors when it rains unexpectedly. And as refuge for drug addicts. And as venues for street-side poker clubs. :)
