Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Trains and Tracks


Grapevine Texas

This week Cee has challenged us to find and post photos of trains and/or tracks.

I happened upon this train a few years ago. It is part of the Grapevine Heritage collection in Grapevine Texas.


1927 Santa Fe Turntable

The track is also part of the Grapevine Heritage Collection. It is a Santa Fe 1927 railroad turntable that was salvaged in 1992 and placed in its permanent location in 1995.


Visit Cee’s page and you will be treated to many challenges and many wonderful photos by many wonderful bloggers.

The Daily Post – Weekly Photo Challenge / Converge

“Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together. Geometry in photography — shapes, diagonals, vanishing points….”

I have always been fascinated with photos and drawings of objects vanishing in the distance. An object that goes so far it disappears into the horizon. Objects like a railroad line or a country road.

Traveling through the wide open spaces of West Texas this past weekend I found many examples of vanishing points…here are two of the scenes I captured
