BACK OFF! I HAVE A FISHEYE LENS AND I’M NOT AFRAID TO USE IT!
OK. Glad I got that out of my system.
But seriously, I have to try to break my habit of using every lens in my bag when I go on these shoots. I’m getting better. I did bring a long zoom and never touched it when we explored this abandoned tool factory. But I also brought the fish. And I used it. I love the fish. Especially in close quarters like this.
So, the image â€¦ This gorgeous, rusting monstrosity is a Foster Superheater. So says the ID plate affixed to the front of the it.
My brief and decidedly incomplete google search on “Foster Superheater” leads me to the conclusion that it is a furnace. I suppose I didn’t really need google for that. I was looking for specific details about the model. The patent number is on the plate as well (8537). I have a couple of other images of this thing. Maybe I’ll have more details when I get to posting them.
