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.

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.

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
