Convergence

IMG_8669 (4)

This beautiful stone railroad bridge at Mount Union, Pennsylvania has probably lasted a hundred years. Pennsylvania Railroad trains run along the Juniata River carrying coal and freight.  As I look back on this photo, taken on Rt. 521, I was struck by the beauty of the bridge, and then by the convergence of curved intersecting lines.  The guardrails, white and yellow lines,  and the road all pass through the stone arch of the bridge. Poetic beauty in the everyday infrastructure of our life.
Sweeping lines converge
Modes of travel intersect
Summer trains rumble
Wild bushes // green trees surround
hundred-year-old bridge of stone
Daily life goes on
Beauty taken for granted
River flows nearby
