Monochrome Madness 2 – 19


walk the line-1

This week I am sticking with my railway track theme.  I haven’t been out much lately for one reason or another but I did manage to get a couple of shots I liked the other day in Eltham on the railway bridge.  I am scared of heights but my partner encouraged me to go out across the bridge further as it produced better shots. To describe this bridge, it was abandoned, had the wooden sleepers across it but in between was space looking down to the water..

I started out and felt quite proud of myself but a few steps in I realised the space between wood and sheer drop were getting bigger, it was still manageable but my fear won out and I sat down and started taking photos a bit closer to the edge than I liked but I was okay with that.

When we finally got back to safe ground we decided to try the other side… we had to tackle thick brush and a steep incline but we managed to get up onto the tracks and I took a couple of photos that I felt okay with.  The first one was last weeks MM and this week it is of the bridge.

  8. Very nice. I love the starkness of B&W in movies as well.

    I got some trestles to nowhere from Rhode Island and some tracks in the Mojave. There was that unfortunate incident in the Mojave.
