The Old came before us. It is what we seek. Through our travels, I hope you will let us bring to you a bit of the past and perhaps one or two of the new. We are also new to digital so laugh with us as we get used to a new way of thinking. God put us on Earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now, we are so far behind, we will never die.

HEY Peter, way back up here on comments, I had to tell our friend Steve, that we have lost the little bird family ::))) we tried so hard to protect them if we possibly could, but we do have to sleep and leave the house too, so when returning from an outing, they were GONE! the predator could have been a number of things. There are cats around in the neighborhood, YES those pesky squirrels, dogs, ann larger birds. so we do not know...we are saddened to have lost them, there were at least 5 in that nest. :(((

thanks for the visit and comment Peter...Sarah

Sorry, folks, y'all are all wrong about the Macon & Birmingham Railroad!

As a member of the now defunct Georgia, Southern and Florida Railroad Historical Society, (of which the M&B was a subsidiary) I know the M&B went through Yatesville, but in town it ran parallel to another railroad. That railroad owned the trestle which you have photographed.

It was known officially as the Atlanta & Florida Railroad (alternately referred to as the Atlanta & Fort Valley or the"Little Southern".) It ran actually between the Federal Pen area branching off the Southern there heading south through Hapeville, Riverdale, Fayetteville, Woolsley, Zetella, Williamson, Zebulon, Meansville, The Rock, Yatesville and south through Culloden, Musella, Roberta, Fort Valley and finally, Perry. Through service ended in 1947 with the line being torn up, iirc, south to Musella. The tracks still exist from Roberta South to Perry.

The M&B headed west towards Thomaston, Crest, Thundering Springs, Woodbury, Cedar Rock, Odessa, Mountville and finally, LaGrange. It ended there. It never went any further west than that. Eastbound from Yatesville it went southeast through some teeny tiny settlements wyeing in with the GS&F just north of the current Macon Airport and on to Macon from there. It ended service in 1927 and was all gone by 1929.

Just thought some of you would like to know for the record.

Thanks for dropping by Corey. This was several years ago in Plains, Ga. home of President Carter which is peanut territory. I found it rather humorous.

¿Dónde es exactamente?

Thanks, Ma&Pa and Michael! It's good to be back. This shot was created from three pics I took with different exposures. I used Photoshop's HDR Pro to merge them into one image and increase the detail in each part of the pic. I'm a rank amateur at that, but I liked the end product.

The purple color was what wowed me when I was developing the shot. It only showed up in the merged image. The light came from the ferris wheel that was over my right shoulder when I took the pic. The wheel was illuminated for September 11 with red, white, and blue lights. The red and blue lights combined to cast a purple light onto the wooden planks. I just thought it looked cool, so I uploaded!

And I would love to see Babcock's mill covered in snow, but that same snow keeps me from traveling. Our poor highways fellas are working overtime all over!

Stay safe, dry, and warm this season!

:)))) thanks for all that info Steve..:)

it was in movie Psycho..
