Where is BadFish? Many of you know Badfish, my blogger friend who runs the Badfish & Chips Cafe. I haven’t seen him blogging since April and I dearly miss him! If you read him, you must too, because he is an enticing and inspiring writer. Can you find him?
So, I’m officially launching the Badfish search mission: “Where is Badfish?”, inspired by the children’s puzzle book created by the English illustrator Martin Handford, “Where is Wally? or Where is Waldo? (in the US)” .
Who wants to join me to find him?
What can you do? As you might be out in the streets, shooting for this week’s photo challenge themed “Pedestrians”, you might as well look around and try to find Badfish, wherever you are, because he loves travelling all over the world. Here is the one and the only photo he published in his last post: Gonzo Gozo: Malta’s Azure Window.
To kick off my mission, I am also joining the photo challenge. I chose to feature the Python bridge in Amsterdam to attract him, because together with Debbie from Spaceship China and Desleyjane from Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist, we share a mutual love for this bridge.
Desley has been there in April 2015 (time to come back, my friend!), when she visited me and joined the King’s birthday party in Amsterdam. She has seen the bridge during a colder but sunnier day than today.
Debbie and Baddie haven’t ever seen the bridge, except for the photo on the header of this blog and for that, he wanted to come to Amsterdam to visit it. It’s a very stormy autumn day, but as I live only a few meters away, I went to this pedestrian bridge to check every passerby, hoping to find Baddie.
Maybe he is one of those guys out there, just crossing the bridge. Let me run…
Bad luck, there was no Badfish! It wasn’t him yet. So, while we wait, I’ll share a bit of the history of this bridge, especially for Debbie.
At Wikipedia I only found this:
Python Bridge, officially known as High Bridge (Hoge Brug), is a bridge that spans the canal between Sporenburg and Borneo Island in Eastern Docklands, Amsterdam. It was built in 2001 and won the International Footbridge Award in 2002. The bright red bridge spans 90 meters and was designed by Adriaan Geuze of the architectural firm West 8. The bridge has stairs, requiring bicycles to be pushed on a stairway ramp.
Are you joining me to find Badfish? Can you spread this request throughout the blogosphere? Let’s find Badfish!
If you hear from him, please let me know.
