A very well known waterfall and swimming hole in Grainger county. This was the prettiest waterfall of the weekend in my opinion.

Grainger Town in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne, looking down Grey Street and Grainger Street.

This little gem and the 30 acres its on could be yours for $350,000.00. Theres also a house and a waterfall.

Playing with patterns today. This is created from a shot of the roof of the Grainger Market, Newcastle upon Tyne, which was rebuilt in 1901 after fire destroyed the orginal roof. Now a listed building, the roof is very reminiscent of that of a railway station.

Constructed in 1880-1883 to a design by architect and civil engineer John Grainger, father of famous musician & composer Percy Grainger. He later designed Melbourne's Princes Bridge (1886).

 

So as to allow the movement of shipping up and down the river to the Port of Sale, the bridge was designed to swing open. "The bridge is an elegant wrought iron trussed structure, supporting a timber decked roadway. It is approximately 61 metres in overall length, with a balanced swing span of approximately 45 metres, revolving on a central pier through a hand operated winding mechanism. The central swing span, when in the open position, provided two openings 19.2 metres clear for river traffic. Brick abutments support the fixed approach timber decking." (Victorian Heritage Database)

 

It is the oldest bridge of its type in Australia, and one of only two operational swing bridges, the other being the Pyrmont Bridge at Sydney's Darling Harbour (1902).

 

The bridge at Longford is no longer operated by hand, but utilises the assistance of a generator driven electric motor for scheduled openings.

While photographing a church over in Grainger County Tn. Saturday, I happened to look over on a hill just behind it and noticed this old house with the red barn. Needless to say, I had to include them.

Cherokee Dam is located on the Holston River in Grainger and Jefferson Counties in Tennessee. The Holston is a tributary of the Tennessee River, which is formed when the Holston and French Broad Rivers join near Knoxville. Cherokee Lake stretches for 59 miles from the dam to just south of Rogersville and includes parts of Jefferson, Grainger, Hamblen, and Hawkins counties. The dam is operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The TVA is a federally owned corporation created by Congress in May 1933 to provide navigation, flood control, electricity generation, fertilizer manufacturing, and economic development in the Tennessee Valley, a region hit hard by the Great Depression.

 

Funding for Cherokee Dam was signed into law on July 1, 1940 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and construction began the following day. Building the dam required the purchase of 45,158 acres of land and the relocation of 875 families, 51 cemeteries, and the community of Bean Station. Construction was completed on December 5, 1941, the gates were closed, and the reservoir began to fill.

 

If you saw the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", you probably remember the scene where the ancestral manse is flooded and the four main characters end up floating in a lake. While the scene is fiction, it is based on events that actually occurred in portions of Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

 

This location in Grainger County is near the town of Bean Station (originally Bean's Station for settler William Bean and his descendants). I have mixed feelings about the TVA because, although it brought electricity, jobs, and progress to the area, residents whose families had occupied the land for generations were displaced. I have also heard stories of coffins rising to the surface of the lake because the workers did not actually move the graves but simply reported doing so.

 

“No, they're flooding this valley so they can hydroelectric up the whole darn state. Yes, sir, the south is gonna change. Everything's gonna run on a paying basis. Out with the spiritual mumbo-jumbo and the backward ways. We're gonna see a brave new world where they hook us all up to a grid. Yes, a veritable age of reason, like the one they had in France. Not a moment too soon. Not a moment too soon.”

--Everett McGill, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"

This is Rutledge Presbyterian Church, located in Grainger County, Tn. I first photographed, and fell in love with it, back in the early summer. After seeing how it set up on a rise up under the trees, surrounded by an old cemetery, I knew I wanted to go back and shoot it in fall. I made it back to Rutledge on Friday, but was disappointed with the color (or lack of color) among the trees. I did like the "warmer" lighting, and the leaves covering the ground. I would've loved to have been able to go inside and shoot, but the door was locked. This has become one of my all-time favorite churches that I've photographed over the years, and I would love to capture it in the snow. That'll probably not happen since I have to cross Clinch Mountain to get to Rutledge.

Daily Edmonton-Calgary manifest is rumbling south near the hamlet of Grainger. Up ahead is the Bircham grade which will have this 8400 ton train down to a walking pace. That poor old 5557 (trailing) was screaming its lungs out!

In Grainger County, Tennessee.

I have seen many musicians playing in the streets of Cardiff. Usually people walk past and drop money in the guitar case for them, some even stopping to listen for s while. I've never seen people actually stop and stand around to watch. They do it with the performers, that do tricks or juggle or whatever, but not for musicians.

 

If you heard him play his violin with his own looping tracks that he makes as he goes you would understand why. Do a search for him on the net, and look out for his version of "Clocks" by Coldplay.

Designed by prominent engineer John Grainger (father of musician Percy Grainger).

 

"The Water Tower at the corner of Marley Street and Cunninghame Street was commissioned in 1887 on a one acre site. It is a handsome four storey structure of brick, sparingly decorated with cream brick contrasting against the orange hue of the circular structure and topped by an iron tank. To the east is a second tower, built in 1922 to replace the first. The function of this tower has since been replaced by a new tower at the Sale Waterworks site."

Eerily quiet, the Grainger Market on Sunday gives no indication of the hustle and bustle which is always evident through the week!

 

The Grainger Market is the City's largest traditional market, situated in an elegant, classically styled building in Grainger Street near Grey's Monument. Built by architect John Dobson and Richard Grainger, this under-cover market was the largest in Europe when first built in the 1830's - more details here:
