With and Without (Geese, Filter)

April 22, 2017

The quarries fill not just with water but dead trees. And visiting Canada geese. . . . What a difference a polarizing filter on my camera lens makes.



Old Quarries Become Water Features

April 21, 2017

There is a road that I cross when driving between Schoepfle Garden and Oberlin called Quarry Road. If I drive far enough north on Quarry Road, I reach two sandstone quarries that have ceased operations and are now filled with water. On a recent typical overcast day in early spring northern Ohio (April 2, to be exact), I did some exploring there.



Silo As Icon 5

August 26, 2016

Three of the tiles that I could see from my locations on the ground had writing on them. Were the names those of the tile makers?

Update: See the comments below for information about Mr. Quashnefky. Also, I added a photograph that shows the structure of the tiles.

Besides the yellow jackets, other creatures have found a home in the silo.

Yellow jackets seem to have found the silo hospitable.

Silo As Icon 2

Seen from this viewpoint, the silo makes me think of a chess piece—maybe a nonsensical cross between the rook and the bishop.

Silo As Icon 1

August 22, 2016

Yesterday morning I took out the car and the camera and wandered. I found a park I’d never visited, let alone ever heard of: Caley Reservation. Since the demise in family farms, many old silos around here have been abandoned. Such was the fate of this structure—or would have been had the good people at Lorain County Metro Parks not seen the value in letting it stand as a piece of sculpture. I spent some time exploring it.

I photographed a different window in this building two years ago.
