Today's theme is "Lights At Night" for #JoinInDaily with +Johnny Wills.
I took this while standing on the pedestrian bridge over I-40 in Durham North Carolina.
An amusing story goes along with this:
After taking pictures for 20-30 minutes, I packed up my gear and headed back to my truck which was parked in the mall parking lot. As I was leaving, I was pulled over by the police.
Apparently, several people called the police because they saw a guy with a tripod standing over the highway.
The police office was nice and after we chatted for a few minutes while he waited for a background check on me to complete, I was bid a good evening and headed on home.

Locked into #RustySunday!

This is a #padlock for locking train track switches that I came across while at the +N.C. Transportation Museum earlier this month. I loved the contrast between the rust and the blue. I personally do not see locks like this very often. Do you come across odd locks in your travels?

Love the #rust, with +RustySunday and +Gary Posner!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!
I'm sharing one of my favorite pictures for Father's Day of four generations of Vickers that we took while at a tractor show last year.
From left to right we have Jim Vickers, my grandfather. Next is Audie Vickers, my Dad. I'm the next adult, and the two kids crawling over me like spider monkeys are my two sons.

Today's theme is "Deer" for #JoinInDaily with +Johnny Wills.

This is from my archives, but when I saw the theme I instantly thought of this image. And who doesn't enjoy seeing some fawns playing around?

The #American bald #eagle is an extremely #majestic bird that is known to skim the water to catch fish. Have you ever seen one fishing?

I'm hooked on #RustySunday!

This hook is used for train wreck recovery, so you can image how massive it is in person.
