Steel mine hoists, near the place they worked, wait for scrap prices to justify their final removal from Osceola, Michigan.
This is one of my favorite images of the year because of the color, light and textures. Someone told me once that the medium of photographers is not film or digital sensors, but rather shadows. This photo is evidence of that.
Iron lions in the doctor’s apartment guard the way to the dining room.
It’s a small world… look at it.
One of the few windows that escaped steel plating the last time the hospital was sealed tight to let nature roam within.
I love the texture of the rust through the decaying yellow paint.
This is a great example of a combination rock house; the silos below used to fill trains with ore dropped from mine cars pulled to the top of the structure.
Looking down a manlift on the ore dock side of the elevator. It’s a belt-less belt-o-vator!
