The Gears


no images were found

I spent a few minutes going through the archives this morning and found this detail shot of the rusted remains of an old turbine engine. It’s been decomposing behind one of Lawrence’s smaller mill buildings for the past 70-80 years.

I spent a couple of hours shooting it on a really hot summer afternoon 2009.

It is from my “early days of HDR.” I don’t think I would have processed it the same way today, but still like it. I was hooked on the rust and textures of this hulk. I thought this shot best captured it.

  1. Nice composition and the colors are great. I’d still like to see what you would do with this bracket today. I suspect something not so bright and cheerful.

  2. I love this kind of shot – great colour and texture, and an interesting mechanical subject. That said, I think I prefer the way you are processing things these days. Isn’t it fun to look back on old images and see how your style progresses? I’m going through my archive just now and am surprised to see how much my photography has changed in the last 3 years or so.
