There are many things that transport me to other places or times. One of them is the Atlas Life building at night. A few years back there was a famous photo that made the cover the regional yellow pages. Because my parents sold the ads in similar books and continue to do so to this day, it reminds me of a piece of my childhood.
A couple of winters ago, we had a major ice storm in the Tulsa area. As I am ever curious about natural ice formations, I naturally went out to explore. My house had several ice stalactites, many of which were over three feet in length. After breaking off several of them, I held each one up to the sun, until I came up with this shot. The sky was an almost un-natural blue, which gave the whole image the same cast. I especially like the frozen bubbles in the ice, not something I get to see everyday.
Did you ever go to a place that just looked like it should be in a horror film and find yourself thinking, if I was watching this I would scream at the screen “Don’t Go Up There, You Idiot”?
I found this pile of old steam pipes in the basement of a building. Funny thing is the boiler unit that they were for was removed and left a giant hole in the floor, but these pipes were left behind to rust.
