I recently showed you the chimney of the McArthur Woolen Mill. But that reminded me that there is an old and dilapidating water wheel contraption there. Unfortunately, it is falling apart, but I thought I might find some interesting little details to photograph.
The machinery was farther from the road than I had thought. Even at maximum zoom, I couldn't get really close. This ↓ is what I could see. It has been edited and cropped a little bit, and as you can see, I was still not getting right into the detail.
My files are pretty big, so I was able to crop some more and also convert to b&w.
In the bitter cold, I was hoping for icicles, but there were none. I suppose one would need thawing causing dripping followed by freezing, and that is not what we have at present.
From where I was standing, I also pointed the camera upward to photograph the peak of the tower. I was working quickly in the cold, so I got what I could and skedaddled home.
I like the lines and textures, but a more symmetrical photo would have made am improvement. However, I don't think there was a better viewpoint available, not now in the snow right now anyway.
Oh the suffering we do for our art! Just don't cut off an ear! Love the machinery which converts to B&W nicely. Textures of far off brickwork are grand.
Interesting to see all the fancy brickwork at the top of the building which mostly isn't seen.
I know your temps are colder than ours so you must have been freezing.
I like the rooftop. Very nice colors and textures.
I love the old machinery. It has a story.
I like the photos. I love to see old machinery, but prefer it to be restored and working. That's always a big ask, though.
Love the rooftop! It's beautiful. The cold would deter me from photographing anything so I salute you!
Love the monchrome wheel. And yes, cold fingers for sure. We had a six inch icicle hanging off the newspaper box yesterday. And I was stupid enough to take the car through the carwash. Have not yet tried to get back into it.
That brick is an interesting colour.
Not so bad at all!
That is an interesting building. Thank you
I really like old brick work at the top of the wall. I wonder if that top section was an add on at a later time. The bricks look newer.
Again, I REALLY enjoy your “structure” photographs so very much! The B&W image of the giant gear is exceptional (IMO).
I also find the first image of you photographing structures and your camera set-up being rather somewhat structural……. sort of “meta” ….. such a trendy word (a lot of my students are saying it a great deal, recently)…… and now I found a reasonably good application for using the word too! :)
I do like these.
The last photo has it all: detail, color, line and even some loose flashing!
Love all those pictures but I really wish the beautiful old building could be restored and used for something, too much of our history is disappearing. In a young country like yours there is room for preservation.
That building is so grand! What a pity a use can't be found for it. The brick detail will fascinate my bricklayer husband.
Interesting what you come up with.
This has good potential. It will be interesting to see what you make od it.
I'm ot sure I agree on the symmetry -- actually, this strikes me as pretty symmetrical and I love the angels with the textures.
