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

Back at Armour

Posted in art, photography, Uncategorized by Jason Gray on February 25, 2012

Today, I returned to the abandoned Armour Meatpacking Plant to get some color images of this amazing building/compound for my new “Place” series. Unfortunately, the groundskeeper caught me and my two companions, and we were escorted away. Thankfully, I was able to snap a few before getting caught.

All shot with Nikon D300 and Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G lens.

    Oh wow, you went inside the smokestack?

    Yeah, the lighting in there is really pretty surreal and amazing. When inside, we heard a bird landing up on top, and the echo made it sound huge…

    What an excellent series of images. Your skillful compositions are matched by your bravery. Even when I was considerably younger I wouldn’t have had the nerve – or a proper camera. 🙂 Very well done ! Will pass this link on to my son. and others.
