The porcelain hoops guided the silk threads through the device.
2015. Exterior of chapel.
A typical summer storm on Lake Superior.
One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.
A long exposure under the trestle-like approach to the dock, under which trains still pass regularly.
From the slip where grain boats would tie for loading and unloading, the unloader juts in a modernist-architectural way that is oddly visibly satisfying. Inside that white building is the retracted boat unloader, more or less a long and sturdy conveyor attached to a joint and crane motor. There used to be four loaders that looked like simple tubes with cranes and ropes attached hanging from this side of the elevator. All that remains of those is one fixture on the white building (not visible here) and the frame of one on the elevator proper, visible in the upper-middle of this image, to the right of the unloader apparatus.
A huge steel tank, one of several left over, left over from either the Ashland Oil or Allied Chemical periods.
