2005. This is very likely the oldest image I have on the website; I took this in the early 2000s with my first camera when I was new to the hobby. I still like it quite a lot.
The approach to the dock is rigidly geometric. I always thought its outline was beautiful against the lake that, by contrast, was always moving.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.
Even with a hundred people parked in front of the lakeside relic, it was invisible.
A long exposure under the trestle-like approach to the dock, under which trains still pass regularly.
A spring moon stands over the very active former Grand Trunk Elevator, now ‘Superior’. It seems to have gotten more than a few facelifts over the years.
A long exposure of the side of the coke ovens, lit by the nearby streetlights.
Looking out of the brewhouse toward the river.
One night, I camped behind the sugar mill. You can tell be the clouds that a cold front was moving out—it was a hot day.
