Another from the trip to Buffalo. This is from the abandoned Carbide/Graphite Group site in Niagara Falls, New York.

I guess someone is afraid that theyd ru over the fire hydrant. Interesting. Hey that boxcar in the back look like it would be an awsome photo. That red stands out. It kinda takes the look from the photo. But nice detail...

In contrast to yesterdays shot, I find this one lacking something...or maybe having too much of something, for me I think reduced DoF would help this shot, and may crop a bit more, I don't know just my opinion. Thanks for the great site!!

Your industrial galleries are great. Do you know Ed Burtynsky's large format work - massive tire dumps, oil freighter demolition beaches in Bangladesh, slag rivers from refineries? A spectacular exhibit in Montreal closed recently.

It's a bit sad actually. I like the shot, but it speaks highly of abandonment. It almost puts me in a depressed state, like time just passes by and leaves you run-down.
