It's Transport Tuesday again. Be sure to share a transport related creation today, and tag both +Shelly Gunderson and myself, as well as the hash tag #TransportTuesday so that we can find your posts.

Here's my contribution for the week:

Skating Along

May 31, 2017. Boston, Massachusetts.

While setting up to take an image at the Central Burying Grounds, located at Boston Commons, this guy came riding through the park on his skateboard. I snapped a few shots of him in the frame, as well as a few once he had passed, and I thought the image with him skating along stood out to me more.

Per the City of Boston's website, the cemetery dates from 1756.

Stop

June 23, 2008

With the Mississippi River flooding, parts of Laclede's Landing on the St. Louis riverfront are under water. The two bridges in this shot are the M.L. King Bridge, which connects the states of Missouri and Illinois. The bridge in the foreground is the Terminal Railroad's high-line bridge that carries the Merchants Subdivision above the riverfront. The image was captured at the intersection of Laclede's Landing Blvd. and Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd.

A lone minivan travels north on US 83, on a hot and sunny day in the State of Nebraska. I captured this while traveling from North Platte, NE. to Badlands National Park in South Dakota.

Sailing at Sunset

August 13, 2008. Chicago, Illinois.

Here's my contribution for the return of #TransportTuesday, curated by +Shelly Gunderson and myself.

This image was captured while out sailing on Lake Michigan, many years ago with one of my best friends. After a day of railfanning on the south side of the Chicago area, we met up with one of his friends who took us out sailing on the lake.
