Instagram Follow Friday – Beauteous Bridges

There are a wide variety of bridges across the globe, each with their own design and ability to form a connection between two places. We love to see the different ways photographers manage to capture these bridges, and this week we feature a group of Sony shooters who have posted epic bridge shots to their accounts. Check out their work and give them a follow. Tag your own Sony shots on Instagram with #BeAlpha for the chance to be featured on AlphaUniverse.com, and give @sonyalpha a follow for your daily dose of creative inspiration.
