The view

Pictured above, an old silo in the Caspiana area. This silo was missing the roof and had these windows busted out, and busted out in a neat manner. I walked around this place several times and couldn’t trace any makeshift occupancy in the silo. I have no idea why there was a window busted through the side for a view of nearby highway and train tracks. Usually when I tromp through these modern ruins, I can place their decay into perspective. I couldn’t circle a likable history for this window neatly holed through the wall of the silo.

  1. I’ve just been wondering through your blog and it has been hugely inspirational to me. I’m new to the whole blogging/posting thing and in seeing your blog I realise now what/where I have been going wrong. Your photo’s are excellent. Thank you. A.Wally

    1. Thanks. That is a flattering comment because I feel like I’ve just been shooting from the hip with this photo blog. I’ve only been wayfaring through this stuff for a few months. The processing side—Photoshop—I have self-taught experience from my job as technical writing and design. On photography, I knew nothing and now only know a little. I look back on my earlier posts and there are dozens of things I would change. Thanks again for the words. I’ve looked at some of your archived “patterns” and was impressed. You’ve got a good eye for bringing out a uniqueness in things people ordinarily pass right by.

    1. One exposure slightly to the right in RAW format. Since I metered the wall for exposure, the background outside the window was overexposed. I used Lightroom’s “recovery” feature to bring that exposure back to a better state and then did a global sharpen that brought the cracks out better.
