But at the right angle, blurry behind the trees, it might be a castle,
the winter-dead trees the entrance to some forbidden forest,
the rusting hulk of a barge the last vestige of a sunken navy
the hidden railroad bridge a lowered drawbridge
whose struts become the scaffolding upon the battlements
above a river that leads to a long forgotten realm,
a place where fantasies are born.
And also nightmares.
I shot these pictures along the Rails to Trails Riverwalk in Columbus, Georgia this past January (2012), and I posted them in early February. Today, I’m linkinking up to the SITS Girls Pinterest challenge and to the instructor’s Pinterest Page (Courtney at Click It Up A Notch). Enjoy!
