Obscure Places

Photography. Empty, abandoned places. Kinda...discomfiting.

If there weren't clues like the shape of the wall switches here and there, you'd think it was the Zone of Alienation.

I find no little to fascinate me in the images of urban ruins. There's one set of photos in particular of one Eagle River power station -- a couple hundred high-quality photos, no doubt garnered at some risk. The subject matter is ... forlorn, but the photography is choice.

(Sorry, I can't lay hands on the URL right now. I just realized I seem to have taken down the Urban Ruins section of my blogroll some time ago, which should indicate the dilatory nature of my interest. ::weak grin::)

Heck I know at least one of those places. The quincy mine smelter is at the old quincy copper mine.

I have sitting next to me the very last ingot smelted and poured out of that place and a nice certificate to prove it. I bought it from a museum that had it on display but needed the money. I use it as a door stop on my computer room. The other door stop is another 62 lb ingot of copper that was smelted in the 20's and lost over the side of at a dock near Cleveland. I bought it from a diver who found it while dismantling the dock.

I have been all through there when I was good to undergrad in geology. Great times and good pictures. Too bad the place looks a lot worse then I remember it now 30 odd years ago.
