365: Day 6 – Nature’s Fury

4 09 2011

I spoke about this building in yesterday’s post. When I attempted to get the shot yesterday, it wasn’t coming out the way I wanted it to. There was a fence that was a nuisance, it was too sunny to get a properly exposed photo and I didn’t have a lot of time to figure out the proper adjustments to my camera. Today, a less sunny day, I gave it another go from a different, slightly elevated, angle. I did a little bit of post-processing to bring out the details of the old building (at least what remains).

Here is the final product:

Nikon D3100 - f/13 - 1/200 sec. - ISO 100 - 48mm - No Flash

This was a fully functional building until a sudden microburst (kind of like a tornado) tore through the middle of this old building.

Wow. Insane how something damaged can still make a good picture. Are they going to keep this building up or are they going to finish tearing down? This would make a good historical place or landmark.

A few months ago we got hit by a tornado that caused extensiv damage. Many buildings and homes were condemned and destroyed. This building, although still standing, will probably get knocked down. But yes, there’s is a lot of great history in this area.
