Go Marilyn! This could be a sandstone formation in Arches National Park.

Thanks, Hank, for your comments. It was only a day or so ago that I remembered the years I was in college and grad school. Whenever I traveled between there and home, the train went right past (practically through!) the steel mills at Gary, Indiana, and I was always fascinated. I always wished I could have a chance to explore. Well, these weren't steel mills, of course, but finally I've had a chance to explore something similar, and it was great!

Is it me or did they put so much more effort into buildings in the past, even industrial ones?

Nice shot!

Marilyn Whiteley on January 15, 2008

Thank you, pentagrama and ian.r. Yes, Ian, I believe that they put more effort into the strictly utilitarian buildings of the past, and that is part of why I find them so interesting.

Excellent. Just a form/shape. A YS for this photo. Great series Marilyn. I like it.


Marilyn Whiteley on January 15, 2008

Thank you for your comments, Carsten, on this and the other photo, and for the YS. Let me acknowledge that your own excellent industrial photos were a major influence in getting me to try this out. If you've read my reply above to Hank, you'll know that I was interested in the sights industry many years ago. But I think of myself as photographing landscapes and nature--and "the sights" when I'm on a holiday. Old industrial sites? Me?? Your pictures have given me a major push in that direction.

Greetings, Marilyn

Beautiful old red brick building, Marilyn! You took it from a good angle - really a great job! Greetings, Anne

Thanks, Anne. I worried about the "orphan" at the far end. I don't like to leave things disconnected, but I really liked the view. Greetings, Marilyn

I love Edward Hopper...and he would be so proud of your work. Congrats

I love Hopper's work, too, so I thank you very much for your comment.
