Looking out of the American diesel crane at the gantry crane that ran the length of the dock.
A self portrait, from the early 2000s.
Fermenters and mixing tanks fill this brewing room. The lighting is all natural, and is partially owed to a crumbling wall letting the sunset blast the interior in almost perfect profile.
On deck, looking at the door to the engine room.
Wintertime is quiet, except for the planes overhead.
Just a couple guys enjoying an industrial ruin.
Stained windows and sheet metal catch the sunset from across the Ohio River.
Connecting the Administration building’s tower and top floors is this beautiful cast iron staircase. It was probably designed to help service the clock originally planned to be set in the tower, but when the hospital went over budget the state cancelled the timepiece. Now we are left with a gorgeous stair with little or no real purpose–not that I’m complaining. I am a long-admitted spiral staircase fetishist.
