Harsh

Image
Here is another photograph from my trip to Prague. This view is looking out over Lesser Town from a walkway leading up to Prague Castle. For some reason, I like the harshness of the lighting in this image.

Cables No More

Image
This view is looking north up the old Illinois Traction System (ITS)/Illinois Terminal System (ITC) approach to the McKinley Bridge. The former railway bridge approach is now a hiking and biking trail. The overhead power lines were removed long ago when the ITS converted to diesel powered trains.
The McKinley Bridge crosses the Mississippi River between St. Louis, MO and Venice, IL, and was built by the ITS in 1910. The bridge originally carried both automobiles and trains. After an extensive rehabilitation, the bridge once again carries automobiles, as well as pedestrians and bicyclists.
