Downtown Greensboro Cityscapes, Part 3, Abandoned Garage

Found this cool abandoned garage on E. Lewis Street, about one block over from Elm St.  The patterns, shapes, lines and textures all contributed to an excellent composition opportunity.  I really felt this subject worked well in both black and white and color.

Regarding color, I often find I need to give my eyes a break when judging color.  Yesterday, I spent a lot of time tuning the color in the composition below.  This morning, just before posting, I felt the image was a little too green, and, I had lost some of the teal color in the garage door.  A couple of quick adjustments, and, done.  Glad I slept on it.

Link-Taylor Silo Compositions, 3 pics

Part of the Dixie Furniture Company (founded in 1901), Link-Taylor brands manufactured quality hardwood office, bedroom and dining room sets.   Dixie Furniture became Lexington Furniture in 1987.  Like textiles, furniture manufacturing has declined significantly due to lower cost overseas manufacturing.  These buildings are now part of the local abandoned manufacturing landscape.

This is the first in a series of compositions of an intriguing abandoned house on Highway 150 in Caswell County North Carolina.  The house was locked, I can’t confirm this is really a haunted house.  (o;

Monochrome Monday – Albemarle Scrapyard

I found some cool compositions in this abandoned scrapyard near downtown Albermarle, North Carolina.  After squeezing myself, and equipment, through a narrow opening in the building (3rd image below), dozens of mosquitoes descended on me in an instant.  I had to get my shots and get out quick!
