Default Red nose swing bridge

I took this photo last Friday, 18th, as it was a special day here - Red Nose day, which in the UK is a day to raise money for charity by putting red noses' on people and cars and anything else. Along with this people do things, all sorts of things, to raise money and there is a huge event on TV which includes celebrities who also do things for charity with sponsors.
I took this photo in my home town as this is the first time that i know of that the swing bridge, which opens to let ships through hense SWING, was allowed to put a big red nose on it, lol.
I also sent this photo to the local TV station to show and raise more money for charity.
As you see it was a nice sunny day for a change.
Haven't shown anything in ages but thought this wasn't a bad photo, lol.

Nice Shot! Here in Germany we have also a Red Nose Day on a tv channel to collecting money for a good purpose. I think, they took the Idea over from the UK.
