Stronger, Faster, Better

javascript:void(0); Words to live by.  At least they are if you’re a rower in the Boston area and you pass by it every day as you train.  This graffiti message is written on the train bridge that runs beneath the BU (Boston University) Bridge over the Charles River.  The Charles is where the crew teams from […]

Train Graffiti

Today’s post is another image from the train yard in Lawrence, MA that I grabbed last weekend.  The sky was gray and lifeless on this cold morning, so I tried to fill the frame as much as possible with the boxcars and avoid showing too much sky.  While these types of cars are typically non-descript, […]

Today’s post is one of the few shots I got while on vacation last week in New Hampshire (we were too busy skiing and sledding).  In the warmer months, the Hobo Railroad provides a great opportunity for families to travel through scenic NH along the Pemigewasset River in Lincoln, and also has lunch and dinner […]

Which Came First

Jan 31, 2012 - Buildings, Factory, HDR, Lawrence, Massachusetts, Tracks - 8 Comments - Standard

These tracks are obviously not used anymore, but the way they follow along the shape of the factory made me wonder whether the tracks were laid before the factory was built, or vice versa.  My guess would be the factory came first, although I suppose they could’ve built the factory to be near the tracks.
