Tower Vines One thing that struck me as a midwesterner in the South was the vines. They seem to be able to completely cover a building when left alone for a few decades. Similar Images ...based on the tags: black&white, circles, dark, fences, towers, vines... I found a meth lab in this building once. (Yes, I called it in.) The working end of the blast furnace, where molten metal would flow like lava out of the furnace… a process called ‘tapping’. Another ruined spiral staircase in the mill. A super-shallow depth of field shot on the Leica Summilux. Looking toward the power station at the edge of the explosives plant. I included this image to illustrate the height of the headgrame and the distance between it and the hoist house. Of course, compared with the depth of the mine shaft, this distance is short. So much relies on one thing stacked on top of another thing. Note the large belt pulley in the center of the frame. Follow the axel it’s on and you’ll see several belts still attached to the drive, which was originally steam-driven. The missiles were stored without fuel, to help prevent mishaps. This is the fuel pumping building and one of the tanks.
