Are you now, or have you ever been?

A limited depth macro shot of the conveyor control panel in one of the malting houses... The soft winter sun was so wonderful during my explore that I wanted to keep this image as natural as possible. No HDR was used & very little CS3 refinement was needed either.


The title of this image is a direct lift from George Lucas' excellent first film - 'THX 1138', which itself takes those words from the infamous 'McCarthy Witch Hunts' of the 1950's. Although I suspect Lucas' film asks the question at a more fundamental level being, as it is, a commentary on state control vs the state of consciousness...
