I'm not sure about it's construction date, but I believe this railroad drawbridge across the Arkansas River at Little Rock dates from the 1920's. It is closed to rail traffic and is set for renovation as a pedestrian/bicycle bridge linking the North and South shores over the next five years.

Converted with the Gorman-Holbert process outlined in one of Cal's links

The bridge is old, but the graffiti at the base of its piers is fresh

Very nice job on the conversion. I need to read up on that process. I need to learn layers first. Anybody know where I can find a good tutorial for PSPX?

What are those objects on top of the structure behind the bridge pier in the closeups?

Thanks. I saw and printed the information. I am going to try to locate the book.

Well, I have been waiting until my cash flow situation improves to get PSP 11 but now I think I will reconsider.

I am thinking those objects in question might be signal lights??

I like both of these.

I notice that the red graffiti is much less distracting in the B&W pictures.
