Default Light at the end of the Tunnel

I was shooting from a walkway between these old buildings on a freezing winter morning. Photo was edited using Lightroom 2 and Corel Paint shop pro.

Bob,

Second that. A post industrial era picture. Sadness over unused opportunities. Where did the production go. Very strong picture. From a world of production to a world of consumption

Where are the people? Alienation in every sense of the word. Wake up call

Torgny,

The Haynes Automobile Company was one of many small companies that built cars in the United States in the first decades of the 20th century. The company was started after Elwood Haynes—supervisor of the Indiana Natural Gas & Oil Company in Kokomo, Ind.—came up with the plan to build a gasoline engined vehicle. Haynes worked with the Elmer and Edgar Apperson who owned the Riverside Machine Shop to build a car in 1894. That vehicle took its first test run on July 4, 1894. The three men went into business together, forming the Haynes-Apperson Company in 1896. (It was officially incorporated in 1898.) Both Appersons had left the Haynes-Apperson Company by 1902, and they began making automobiles under their own name, setting up the Apperson Brothers Automobile Company in Kokomo. In 1905, the company formerly known as the Haynes-Apperson Company became the Haynes Automobile Company to reflect the changed ownership. Haynes continued to make cars until the 1920s, when bad times hit. In 1924, the company was declared bankrupt and went out of business in 1925. At it's peak some 600 people were employed here, after they went out of business the buildings sat empty or were used as warehouses for several years. Now they are just empty and waiting to be torn down.

I love it! And we got the history along with the picture! Thanks!

(Plus you've given me a plethora of ideas of shots I can take around Winnipeg)
