At Aviation & Rosecrants (Sunday Bridges)

Here are two train bridges, one for the Metro Green Line light rail, over Rosecrants Ave. and Aviation Blvd. in Hawthorne, about 12 miles due north from Palos Verdes. I lived near by when my partents and I first moved to the US, and then when I started working in aviation after college. I remember the other (proper) train bridge as being the first one I saw in the New World.
See bridges from around the world at Sunday Bridges.

Really nice shot Tash! Also I wanted to thank you for all the interesting information you found on the train I posted a picture of earlier in the week. It's fascinating!

Two for one! Is that a light rail commuter train on the lower bridge?

Love the blur of speed of the train. And the evening light.

Gorgeous shot, I don't know if it would have been so nice with a blue sky, no lights and especially, no train rushing by. Have a great Sunday!

Great motion and rhythm in this shot, Tash! Two bridges in this shot, plus one on your Mostly LA County blog gives you a "hat trick" for the day! Cheers!

Love that "frozen speed" image. The sound and the fury
