Looking toward the power station at the edge of the explosives plant.
Connecting the ground and the sky.
A cloud moves across the attic in front of the window. How? A photographer’s secret.
Soft rain on Vulcan’s ashy pyre… Both of these peaks are dead volcanos, too hard to be totally washed away by storms. As a result, they seem to rise dramatically from the flat valley.
A super-long exposure of the side of the middle of Daisy Elevator, built in 1927. The oldest silos are closest to the mill and date to 1916. They were expanded toward Superior in 1927 and 1941. The total capacity is about 500,000 bushels.
A broken signal light that would indicate to incoming engineers and brakemen the status of the dock deck.

Looking at the rear of the mill, through dead vines and barbed wire.
