Oder K: Coal is the only mineral extracted. Oil is not.

Camera411, I have a question and comment. First, that is a wonderful set of photos and a beautiful dragline!! I collect dragline photos because I grew up in the coalfields of Western Kentucky and have over 200 combined years of coal mining in my family. I typically print the pictures out and hand them on my office wall. I also author heavy equipment books alongside some of my good friends, Eric Orlemann and Keith Haddock. Would it be possible for me to get a larger version of this photo? The original, non re-sized version perhaps? Contact me at and we can talk more! Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

All The Best,

Hello Camera411 Thanks God nothing happened with the williams Tower due to the terrorist attacks. Thank you for your kindest comments about of the coal mine machines.


Gabriel Patrón.

I worked in that building for almost 8 years. I have many memories of this work of art. When 9/11 took place, my co-workers & I, were worried that we could be a target since the terrorists were attacking American ideological landmarks: Pentagon = US Military might; Twin Towers = US Financial might. We were concerned that since Houston represents US Energy might & the Transco Tower (now Williams Tower) represents Houston's oil & gas industry, we could be next. Of course, fortunately that never happened.
