He Said, "Don't Call Me to Bail You Out."

Abandoned Railroad Trestle Bridge, Downingtown, PA

I guess love does have its limits after all. 

Trail to the Trestle Bridge, Downingtown, PA

 Before I go on a photography adventure, 
my husband's parting comment is typically, 
"Don't Call Me to Bail You Out." 
And I think, "That's what my photo friends are for."

*Please note: 
I did not walk onto this bridge and neither should you. 
The bridge is falling onto the highway below - 
and sadly, someone fell to their death there. 
Be smart.

  6. When I saw your title, I knew exactly what you were going to say. HaHa! I've been known to do a little trespassing to get a shot. So far, no jail time. Just be careful out there.

  10. Well I just can't imagine why he'd need to "Bail You Out" - but the never of him saying he wouldn't!
    Well done as the shot of the abandoned bridge was very cool. Also the graffiti wall you climbed over. Thanks to your "eye witness" for those photos.

  12. Wonderful shots from the backroads (and unmarked paths). The bridge looks really interesting and the fact that it's sinking makes it even more intriguing.

    1. Here is what I remember. From the bridge, we went up Bradford Ave. At a stop sign we could see the stone RR Bridge to the left. We went under it and parked at an abandoned house on the left. Across the street was a driveway and house to the left, we took the driveway to the right and climbed over rocks to the trail. It is not an official trail entrance and we were probably trespassing but there were no signs.

      I believe there is also graffiti off of either Old Trolley Road.
