The old and the new

    Newer Older

    Taken inside an abandoned (obviously) factory a block away from the one in the first pic. It has since been demolished.

    A matted and framed print of this image was stolen from an exhibit at the Skillman Branch Library in downtown Detroit on or around July 17, 2009 so if anyone sees it out there on someone's wall...:p

      I love this composition, the way the hollowed out shell of things gone by frames the... things soon to be gone by... I kid... I hope.

      Thanks, Trevor! It definitely is a different look and feel compared to film which I think still always going to look better not matter how many megapixels you can cram into a camera sensor. Especially when it comes to B&W images, just something about the "feel" of it.

      Thanks Angela Anderson-Cobb (catching up). Photography has turned into an interesting journey and practice of defeating the habit of not seeing. Somehow it's turned into an endless fascination on par with my interest in music.

      Fantastic photo Angela. We used this image for a story we did on our iPad app about the Detroit bankruptcy. Your composition could not be more perfect and your title more fitting.
