One day last winter, I drove home from the store the long way. My kids call this a “Daddy Adventure”. I’ll go somewhere just to take a look at something only because my curiosity gets the best of me. On this evening, I ventured down some streets that I have passed many times, yet never turned onto.
I was driving through Richmond, a small town southwest of Houston. I was looking for new things to come back and photograph later when I had my camera with me, when I ran across a viewpoint of the railroad bridge over the Brazos River and had to get out and take a look. I have seen this many times from the highway, but never right by the tracks. Having only my iPhone, I couldn’t resist taking a quick test shot to remind me to come back sometime.
Next time, I’ll have to bring a cold drink and a snack and wait for the train to come by.
