My favorite shot of 2011; a rusty mold for a heart-shaped glass candy dish in its natural environment, so to speak.
No matter what environmental disasters industry throws at Mother Earth, she will bounce back.
This is what it might have looked like if a new Ford descended in the elevator with its headlights on. As seen from the Mississippi side–the opposite portal faces the sand mine.
Everything is texture.
National Mine and its rockhouse (?) as seen from Mammoth Hill. From this angle, I am fairly certain this was a crushing and sorting house. The bottom looks like it has two aerial tram doors as well.
The roof was in bad shape, but too beautiful to avoid. This is the spot were I used to study medieval Latin.
The lower door is where the rocket exhaust would flow into the blast pit during initial launch. The upper doors would vent the rocket so the erector and other equipment in the building would not be (as) damaged.
The lower portal of the Selby Tunnel, as it looks today. The area is a popular spot for homeless to camp–can you spot the tent?
A divot to let more light and air into the building.
