You can take the man out of Bristol, but you can't take Bristol out of the man.

As one who was born and raised in Bristol, U.K. I am (in common with most Bristolians) utterly proud of my home City.
There is one place in our City which leads Bristolians (at home and abroad) to say  "Ah Bristol".  It is the Clifton Suspension Bridge, designed by the 24 year old Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859), but not built until 1864 ( i.e. after his death).
Last night (September 18th 2014) there was a great lightning and thunderstorm in Bristol, staring at about 10:00 p.m..   A local amateur photographer (one Peter Griffiths) happened to be out and about and took these photo's  (as published in the "Bristol Post").
"Our Bridge" illuminated by lightning.
The nearby Christ Church, Clifton (at which I was confirmed as a member of the Church of England in1971 , and from which I went off  to Theological College (Seminary) in 1972
