A century is not forever
I once laughed at this guy at an art fair. He proudly told me that he shot 10 rolls of clouds just to "get it right". Less than a year later, I found this demolition sight north of town. Whilst others saw a big dusty mess, I saw sculptures, I saw potentials for great pictures. Watching this 102-year old giant flour mill slow got leveled to the ground, I felt an overwhelming sense of loss. It will be gone forever. So for 6 months, I visited the site over and over again, trying to capture the mill's demise. 10 rolls? I shot this same building for at least 20 rolls. Sometimes at sunrise, sometimes sunset. I have been chased away by the security, talked to ex-mill workers, even took pictures of the demolition manager... Finally, I know what it feels like, to be a serious about my photos.This photo was shot on film. Taken by ihave2pillows with a Holga 120 N loaded with Kodak Tri-X film.
