Here’s a different treatment of the elevator in Alton Illinois.
Hmm… I really wanted to come up with something clever to say here, but I guess it’s just one of those days. BLAST! Foiled again! Stupid words.

Wait a minute, I thought you were ‘slowing down,’ what gives?? NIce industrial shoot + processing.
Well… yeah, I am… I’m thinking I won’t post anything while Anna and I are traveling (no access anyway, probably), and then reducing my posting schedule upon our return. So that still gives me a few days to mess around. Unless I slow down even more. Which is ALWAYS a possibility.
Thank you, sir!
Clever? You want clever? Why does it remind me of a really bad Japanese horror movie where the buildings come alive?
You are the cleverest of all Loons!
*I really wish I knew how to say that in Japanese…*
Thank you very much, Eden!
Strange place to put an elevator.
Ha! You turn your back for just one minute, and they’ve already put another one of these things!
I like the simplicity of this one, SIG. And the colours.
Thank you very much, S.E…
looking at this again I wish I’d have gotten just a bit lower…
I think the shapes might have worked a bit better if that streetlight was ‘above’ the structure…
The leaning tower of illinois.lol.
I considered picking up a commemorative plate.
Thank you, sir!
You make Illinois look so interesting 🙂
Thank you, S.D.D.!
Have you ever been to Alton? It is a very interesting city… can’t really put my finger on it… but there’s just something about it…
Oh, yeah, this is my kind of photography. The day the elevator in my hometown caught fire sure was a sad one. That faux frame is pretty neat, but I love the simplicity of this.
Thanks so much, U.M.!
Yeah, I’m from North Dakota, so you know I’ve seen my share of these bad boys.
And I can neither confirm nor deny that frame is
ripped-offcopied from an iPhone border. But I did make it, so… that counts for something, right?! Right?! Eh.
An elevator to nowhere!
Wasn’t that an Ozzy Osbourne song?!
This picture makes me want a peach. Maybe that is because there are peach stands near here? Or maybe I still just want a peach from earlier today…. In any case the photo is peachy! 😛
What is this crazy peach obsession you have going on lately?!
Have you been listening to The Presidents of the United States of America again?!
Nice retro touch!! Reminds me of the latest Spielberg-ish film, Super 8!
Thank you, sir!
I haven’t seen Super 8 yet, but it’s on my list! 🙂
I was suprised to see your comment today…I thought you were on vacation? Great retro flair! 😀
Sorry, Mary – I was way too unclear about that (stupid words)!
Anna and I are planning on leaving possibly the week of the fourth… I think… maybe. We’re very decisive. Can you tell?! 🙂
Hi SIG! Back from your vacation so soon! Nice picture! I never imagined this shade of mustard would look so good!
I’m sorry, I misspoke when I was explaining about our vacation. I meant to say there would be a few days I didn’t have internet access (when we moved it from our former store to our home). After that, (around the 4th of July and onward) is when we plan on taking our vacation. I really need to proof read my posts! I’m not always the best with words, you know!
Thank you, N.M. – I really like photographing old ag stuff… (probably since I grew up in the country…)
A really grainy looking grain elevator
Good one, Tony! That sounds about right to me!
