Through the Glass(less)

Looking through the glass(less) windows.

Near my home town, there’s a little ghost town called Dorothy, Alberta.  It has two churches and a grain elevator.  About fifteen years ago I found this town, and all of these pictures are from that trip.  I’ve been back a few times- now the churches have been fixed up and the elevator has lost it’s roof to a wind storm.  Back then, however, the church that I took these pictures from was very decrepit, and, might I add, photogenic.  Someday, for a different post I’ll show the outside of what I’m talking about, but for “frame“, I had to share these.

Enjoy,

Duane

As Old as it Looks

Photo101- Architecture and Monochrome

For this project, I raided an old archive of photos from a trip to San Antonio.  The old missions in San Antonio have been turned into a fantastic National Historic Park.  This one is not the oldest, but still nearly 300 years old, and monochrome totally suits this walkway, and ironwork.

Photo101, Day 7- BIG

This topic really connects (get it?) back to day six.

On day six I said a little bit about this bridge.  It’s really awesome, and a great place to play with a camera.  The land around the base is public parkland, so very free access.  This is the largest railway structure in Canada, and the largest bridge of it’s type in the world.
