I am an enthusiastic amateur. I use 35mm film and digital. My photographic aspiration is to produce landscape photos that present the subject in the most pleasing and natural way possible. I no longer participate in the forum due to the absolute pig's ear that G**gle have made of it. I appreciate sincere comments and will endeavour to visit the galleries of those who leave them.

I thought there might be a Gaudi influence here, Keith. Many thanks for the info. :-)

Cheers, Amelia

I took about six shots as the boat approached, but that curved wake was a gift on the last shot.

Muchas gracias! Keith

I really needed to get closer, and early in the morning before it was overrun with sunbathers, but I don't do early mornings when relaxing on holiday ha ha!

Cheers, Keith

Thanks Steve. My first ever foreign holiday was Lloret, back in 1975. Tossa is a lot more laid back and offered quite a few photo opportunities.

Regards, Keith

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.
