January 26, 2016 0 Comments

From a night of rain, food, and a mad dash around the city to capture as many good shots as possible during a short layover, the streaks and beams of the Eiffel Tower from atop the Pont de Bir-Hakeim.

Just after sunrise, just after the rain ended. Looking at Isle de la Cite from Pont des Arts. Trying to channel Charles Marville, but fortunately not lugging around an actual wet plate setup.

Looking north into Maryland from West Virginia as a freight train rolls south on the leftmost bridge, with the remnants of a third on the right. The rocky outcrop is where Potomac Bridges was taken.
