Industrial Wasteland

By skoffs
Last Sunday was another bleak day, perfect for shooting Norristown's picturesque industrial landscape. I don't know exactly what they make in these buildings, but it's so easy to close my eyes and imagine chemicals spilling into the water. The geese and the townies that fish there don't seem worried though.

The most memorable part of the shoot was, as I was finishing, when a woman walked up and asked, "Richard?" I said I was not Richard, and she said, "You're right, he's much better looking." Ahh, we all need to get reminded of our place now and then.

Have a great week.

Nicely broken reflections. Somehow this has to be b&w.

Watcha Steven,
nice social comment record, well seen and taken. Praps too much water, as I was scrolling I cut off about 1/2 the water and the pic looked better?
