Austin, Texas – Moore’s Crossing (Infrared)

Here is an Infrared photo from one cool spot in Austin…Moore’s Crossing.  I have been there twice.  Shot HDR’s, IR’s and did some portrait work there.   Its located in an obscure park and the bridge is actually just placed there and takes you nowhere. …just for pedestrians only.    I have yet to be back at nite…this is when the ghost stories appear…

Info from the web:  Is the wrought iron bridge really haunted? Rumors state that a tragic incident took place on this bridge. The exact time has been lost.  Research has found no evidence to back up this aspiring urban legend. However, as the story goes, a man was hung, by a mob, from one of the cross beams because of a forbidden love affair. Witnesses say after midnight you can see the man hanging from the crossbeam swaying in a slight breeze. Below, a shadow of a female figure is seen looking up in the direction of the swinging body. Many witnesses over the years have reported seeing people walking across the bridge dressed in out-of-date clothing. A couple, while crossing the old narrow bridge by car in the 80’s, speak of a man on foot waving to them as they pass him. They backed up to see the strangely dressed man but found that he had vanished.
