Ocmulgee River Bridge, Lumber City, Georgia. This through-truss SouthernRailway bridge once rotated on it's center pier to allow Steamboats to pass. Southern also maintained wharves on the riverbank to transfer freight to and from the boats. No trace of these remain today.

I do not know what it is about train tracks, but I certainly love the mystery of them. I keep coming back to this image all the time.

The loneliness of knowing being visible to see. No train, no people trying to cross the tracks. The tunnel bridge secluding this part of the tracks for its own. Sheltering it from harsh reality and saving it as well.

I might be reading to much into this image, but alas this is me. I feel in a past life, I must of worked on tracks one way or another.

Oh My GOSH, Rafael, I have said the exact same thing about myself countless times! How amusing. I, too, think I have done many things of this sort in my past lives, especially dealing with railroad tracks. I continually come back to them. I am intrigued beyond words with everything regarding trains, trestles and tracks.

I don't think you're reading too much into the shot in the least No way! I love your insight, and thanks you so kindly for stopping by and expressing yourself so freely. I have always enjoyed your visits.

Warmest regards to my train track friend from a far,

Mary Alice
