342/366 – Railroad Ties

I drive past this stack of railroad ties almost daily and have wanted to photograph them since I got home before Christmas. Since I don’t have many more days in Minnesota I knew I needed to get out there soon, and the snow this morning was just the push I needed.

259/365 – Vanish high.

Finally something other than things around my house! My friend Mitch saved me from such a photo tonight by inviting me on an adventure to the high bridge just outside of Lexington. And man was it an adventure. I hate heights, I get very freaked out by them. And here we were, walking down an old railroad bridge (that we weren’t sure if it was still in use or safe to walk on), that used to be the highest in the country. I was shaking as we walked. Of course I was distracted by the MILLIONS of spider webs that I had to walk through. I had them all trailing off of me because I couldn’t get them off. It looked like I had streamers.

More to come at some point I am sure.

146/365 – Railroad

I have really been failing at keeping up with my 365 lately. Yesterday was not such a good day at all, and taking a photo just completely slipped my mind. So I took two today to make up for it. I was driving my friend Whitney home from work and drove past this abandoned…something. It looked like something to do with the railroad next to it but I really have no clue.
