Every Which Way

Had a nice quiet day today including seeing The Martian this afternoon, then stopping to photograph during the golden hour. These tracks have fascinated me -- all the criss-crossing and sets of signals.
Thanks for your kind comments on the ICM attempt and the gritty bridge!
All kinds of angles. Great light.

I hope the train drivers know which way they are going! Good grief!

What a great shot, Taffy. All of those leading lines. It is quite a coincidence that I took a similar shot of a train yard myself today. Check it out when you get a chance. Fav for your shot.

Lovely light and wonderful lines! Did you like The Martian then?

Wonderful capture, image!

Great lines and point of view . It seems like you were standing directly on the lines to take this picture - I am never that brave, even if I know that the track is abandoned, I will hesitate to stand on the lines :)

@jamibann Thanks for the comment and view! Yes, I loved the movie -- worth seeing on large screen. It's tense throughout, great acting, wonderful scenery. We saw it in 3-D which was fun. Very satisfying movie-going experience which is saying something as it's so much easier to watch at home! But this one was worth the large screen.

@nitrogene Agreed! I was standing on a bridge above them. Totally safe!
posted November 8th, 2015  
Again, great lines and I find the pattern of the criss-crossing and curving lines fascinating.
posted November 8th, 2015  
Wonderful photo! Railway lines are always so fascinating, particularly where they come together like this. Also like how the red lights show up at the top of the frame as it looks like the tracks disappear into a tunnel.

Super capture, great lines

Fantabulous

Awesome collection of lines and angles
posted November 8th, 2015  
Great shot. It must be a busy station with all those lines. Love the golden light on the pipework and the red lights down the line... They make the lines seem to go a long way... Which they probably do!
posted November 8th, 2015  
Looks like it could be complicated to maneuver.
posted November 8th, 2015  
Great perspective and pov
posted November 8th, 2015  
Nice perspective and capture with this.

Very nice lines, and golden glow on the close railing.

@joansmor I think it's where all the Metra and Matrak trains from the south come into the city. Someone must tell them which tracks to be on.
posted November 9th, 2015  
interesting - love the light

@taffy Good. Glad you enjoyed it!
