Along the River

Original photo by Gary Feather
This image captures a view of the Ohio River over the floodwall in Paducah, Ky.

This view offers a perspective on several avenues of transportation that have served visitors to the area over the years. The wide avenue of the river is paralleled by train tracks where several old train cars sit and a roadway with automobiles parked alongside.

I enjoyed the symmetry as well as the testament to the passage of time that is captured in this image. The simple lines and bright tones add interest and draw the divergent elements into a unified whole.
