Monochrome Monday – Factory of the Past

I have taken innumerable photos of the outside of this abandoned factory (at least I’m assuming it was once a factory of some kind) and probably will continue to do so until such time that it is no more.Β  This was the first time I had walked completely around the building and discovered more about it such as it has no roof but part of the second (?) floor is still in place.Β  All of the windows are boarded up or have this metal safety fencing shutting it off to the rest of the world but on one side in one window there was a hole – right at my eye level – that let me poke my lens in and capture the amazing inside.

    I assume light is coming in from the second floor – yes? Good capture.

      Actually no, the light was coming in through some of the surrounding windows. Thanks

    Nice shot, Teri. It’s really tragic when you consider how many factories like this one are spread throughout the country. How many jobs were lost?

      Hopefully they either retired or went elsewhere since it closed decades ago…we can only hope.

    Cool shot. Leanne Cole’s blog had a piece on shooting abandoned buildings last week. Did you see it?

        It had some good ideas. I ended up bookmarking it.

        I’m following the guy. I really liked the glo stick idea and the respirator.

    This image is stunning and sad. Just keep on doing what you are doing and break in!

      Thank you. I will be posting more images from this factory this week in color. I’d love to “get in” but… πŸ˜‰

      Thanks. I was so thrilled to find that hole. It’s an amazing building to me.
