Directly south of the bridge to Theodore Roosevelt Island, the Mount Vernon Trail becomes an elevated wooden walkway through a stretch of marshland along the Potomac. It’s one of my favorite parts of the trail. Biking over the wooden slats at high speed feels really awesome, and although I should probably be taking care not to run over slower moving pedestrians, my eyes always drift to the side and fixate on this part of the bridges overhead. A few weeks ago I finally climbed over the railing and jumped off the platform to get a shot of this overlooked urban feature. The colors in this scene were pretty bland, so I thought converting the image to black and white would more effectively highlight the lines, shapes, and textures of the bridges.
