Bridges, benches, and butterflies


The railroad bridge in Decatur is one of my favorites.  


This is at least the third time I have photographed it.  This park is a nice one and is between the railroad bridge and the main bridge into town crossing the Tennessee River in Decatur, AL.
I can't think of the name of the park or of the main bridge (old-timerz).

Update:  The park is Rhodes Ferry Park.



These painted butterflies are all over the "downtown" part of Decatur.

Yep, I am certainly going to have to make time to take a detour into Decatur next trip south.

I love this park, your photos are wonderful.

We had a fundraiser in St. Louis a few years ago where folks paid to decorate a similar style of butterfly for charity. You will find them all over the city. I love seeing that kind of local art in abundance. I have photographed horses, giant letter O's, cows and many other items done this way in different cities.

Simply wonderful captures.

That's some place I'd like to spend a late afternoon and just relax.

Oh, I would love to sit on one of those benches and watch the trains cross the river.

Those pretty views are familiar from one of our favorite places to eat at The Daily Brew next to Rhodes Ferry Park!
