Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

A Black and White Town

Posted in 35mm, art, black and white, film, learning, perception, photography, winter by Jason Gray on March 11, 2011

In the last two weeks, I have switched from focusing on the small patch of woods in the urban park where I work to the more industrial side of St. Louis. My city is a strange place that still makes things, all kinds of things, from chemicals to jet planes. This reality means that there is a lot of space (most manufacturing centers stopped building up and started building out at least by the 1940’s), and since most of my city’s population had left for the suburbs by the end of the 1970’s, that means a lot of empty space. So “space” is what I have been concentrating on lately (with a few exceptions). Enjoy!

All Nikon N80 or Nikon n8008s with Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D or Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G lenses.

    I love the photos of the doors with two walls of treasures. Beautiful composition.

    Thanks Ruth! It was one of those times where something just forces you to stop and take another look.
