If you've followed my blog for any period of time, you know I have a tendency to be drawn to images of industry that is past its prime. Following my overload of photographing flowers downtown, I dragged my long-suffering husband on a brief tour of decaying buildings in downtown Syracuse.
Syracuse used to be a very industrial blue-collar town, and while there's still some industry here, much of the old industrial foundation of the city has been reduced to decay. There's a wealth of opportunity for industrial photographs for me. Mind you, photographing it requires some forays into not-so-great parts of town, and a lot of crazy driving and parking as I point and shout, "Ooh! Stop! Over there!" Poor Seth. He humors me so gracefully.
Anyway, here are some scenes that caught my eye.
