It will be torn down shortly and this weekend I have chance to get into it







































I got to get used to my Sigma 24-60mmF2.8. Using a zoom is entirely different from using prime lens.

Great captures of urban artwork and the brick that was probably produced there to make the factory when it was up and running. I like brick buildings and architectural concrete.

The abandoned building comes through in these shots. At least you will have record of this place having once existed.

Neat pictures - love the first one. Guess Toronto has trouble with taggers, too. The urban art is nice, though.

Industrial decay makes for a great photographic study, the fast zoom seems well suited for the job. I particularly like image 1 and image 4.

Very fascinating, and good shots of it as well. This is one of your specialities, Daniel, keep it up!

In Norrköping, a Swedish was-an-industrial-center, in the very city center there are industrial buildings transferred to a conference center, a couple of museums, art gallerys etc. Modernized in a way that keeps the industrial "feel" of the place, like old factory elevators kept and still in use. A way of renewing without denying where the town came from.

In N Am we call them rust belt. And given the high Can$, the formerly industrial area have hit hard indeed. Sure the brick factory was outdated as its heyday was after the war
