Exploring More Quarry Ruins

April 23, 2017

Immediately south of the quarriy pits sit some old abandoned buildings. Here is a view from the outside and another from the inside of a building, the old part of which dates back to 1906, that was used to work the sandstone. The third photograph is of another building on the site, turkey vulture presiding. The fourth photo is of more of the grounds, over which another turkey vulture watches. Someone much braver than I explored even further and made some perhaps more informed guesses about what went on in the quarries. You can see his or her photographs and narrative here. If you Google “Amherst Quarries,” you can find even more information about the quarries as well as some great photos of them in operation. Probably these are the quarries shown in my posts of April 21 and 22. Across Quarry Road from these ruins is an old fence that appealed to me (fifth photo). Besides looking impenetrable, the fence presented a no-trespassing sign, a sure indication that more photographic treasures of the quarry kind await beyond.

While I see dumpsters as opportunities to discover inadvertent abstract compositions on the dumpster sides, some people see them as blank canvasses for their own creations.
