Dixmoor Power Plant

One nice thing about photographing buildings: you can always go back for another shot. And that’s what you do, because it’s about being there as much as it is about the shots themselves. So it was with the defunct power plant. I wanted to have another crack at HDR from the outside.



There are just so many details hiding in plain view that it’s impossible to capture them all well the first time out.



Paths previously trodden reveal tableaus previously overlooked.



Improved lighting makes a shot possible, as in the case of these despairing lockers in an otherwise pitch black room.



Or, finally, a relaxation of my fear of heights got me across a steel catwalk and into this room.
