Trestles on the Trinity
A series of railroad trestles across the Trinity where three lines converge on the downtown area.
The railroads turned Fort Worth from a place the cattle passed through to the place the cattle went to. Several lines come into town and many of the trestles are of the classic steel and concrete style from the early part of the 20th century.
On a clear summer morning I took the camera out to photograph these three at first light. The steel, the weathered look, the reflections-it has alot of the elements to keep my interest and I make several images.
Having locations like this in my town are a nice perk to life here in Cowtown.
