Saturday Six Words and Shadow Shot Sunday February 7-8, 2015

 
Logging industry relic-
 great photo opportunity!
 
 
 
A few days ago we went by this "wigwam"-
Luckily I am married to a very patient man
as he nicely stopped the car so I could spend
a bit of time photographing the inside and outside
of this lumber industry relic.
 
 
As you can see I will be back by myself
to slowly spend time making more images.
I love old rusty machinery.
Especially ones that have such history.
Check this information out!
Meanwhile have a super day!
And don't forget to go here or here
to see more Six Words and Shadow Shots!

I was once told I was a rusty machine! Apparently the best husbands are!

There are so many of these rusty timber-related relics here in Oregon. Lumber used to be king here, but now electronics have taken over. I don't mind became damage from too much deforestation is still evident.

Good eye to spot that! Gave you some great images.

I assume that wood is not being burned in there anymore - which is better overall. And I love old rusting hulks of industry long ago. There is a feeling of honest buildings of labor that were designed for a purpose offers a style that looks good to me...nice subject!

My husband calls those wood kilns-wigwam, huh? There is one out here about 15 miles from my house. Never go the nerve o go in, but you've inspired me to do so!

The photos certainly show very different views! I enjoy taking pictures of relics too. As others have said, rust can make for an interesting look.
