Sunday shoots

Silo's

I’m working on a photography project, and am finding that early Sunday mornings are a great time to get out and take photographs. It’s quiet, people are sleeping in, and the streets are empty. Taking photographs outside in public view tends to draw a lot of attention. Especially if you are photographing something unusual, like a factory, an old house, or a railroad bridge. Everyone wants to know what I am up to, if I am some sort of threat. So I like shooting on Sunday mornings because it offers me some space to work in. This photograph is of a pair of silo’s found along an old rail line. These are relics of when that line was a big influence on the industrial development along its route. Now it’s very lightly used, and these ruins stand as memories to that industrial past.
