This post has nothing to do with Disney, so if that bothers you, please check out one of the other articles here that does… or follow me on twitter for random pics I tweet nightly of Walt Disney World.
There’s a story behind these pictures. I pass a building twice daily on my commute. This building is a factory where my mom used to work, before the manufacturing they did there moved to Taiwan and resulted in the factory being shuttered for probably 15 years. When it closed, the railroad siding that used to provide the factory with materials (and over a hundred people with jobs) was disconnected from the main railroad. I wanted to capture the forgotten feeling, the disuse, the contrast between the still-active rail line and busy roadway only feet away from a place that was just as busy and vital until a business decision sealed its fate years ago.
As always, most of the pictures have descriptions in their captions. The pics were taken just after sunset on April 26, 2013 with a Canon T3i and a 50mm f/1.4 lens.
I hope you enjoy!
