Railroad tracks are so much more than just metal and wood

For a long time I lived near railroad tracks and those overnight freighters chugging along used to drive me up the wall. However, I'm at a different point in life and when I see railroad tracks these days I no longer view them as an annoyance.

Railroad tracks are routes to different places, they open up possibilities. I try and think about what it must have been like for those who lived in the age when trains were first developed and how exciting that must have been.

Here are a couple of shots taken at Harper's Ferry, West Va.

  3. I love Harper's Ferry, but I haven't been there since I got a digital camera. I was last there about 1985. But I remember those tracks. Great photos.
