Facing Downtown (2005) 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. Similar Images ...based on the tags: black&white, clouds, the-moon... The Peavey logo, before it rusted off and the offices were demolished. Looking at the rear of the mill, through dead vines and barbed wire. Steel mine hoists, near the place they worked, wait for scrap prices to justify their final removal from Osceola, Michigan. A typical room in the barracks, reinforced from mortars and light shelling, possibly. Looking out at the abandoned neighborhood around the house. Lost words over the auditorium entrance. The elevator tower seems to have been built with expansion of the dock in mind. From the bottom of the skyway I looked back, my eyes tracing the vines from the marsh up the smokestacks to the perfect Midwestern sky. One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
