A view from the loft in the shipping/receiving building, where the crane operator would step into his cab.
Looking up at the most conspicuous graffiti in the city on ADM #4.
The crumbling building barely contained the colors inside of it.
Looking out the finishing end of the sintering plant at a network of torched-off catwalks through a maze of rust and asbestos. Paradise.
One of my favorite pictures of the tunnel. I am holding a bike rim and wearing a headlamp. My friend triggered the flash just behind my lower back. The fog is a temperature inversion at the entrance of the tunnel; it was 102 degrees outside of the tunnel and about 50 degrees inside, and humid.
It’s not hard to see how Germany could turn these into a prison overnight.
A splash of pink across an otherwise boring sign caught my eye in the old elevator.
These steam powered pumps were integral to the cooling of the meat packing plant next door.
