Today’s Shadow Shot post is a collaboration between my Dad and me. And by collaboration, I mean he took the pictures. I’m writing about them and posting them. I got my interest in photography from my Dad so I thought it would be fitting to show things he finds when looking through his lens.
My parents are in Jamestown, NY this weekend to celebrate Lucille Ball’s 100th birthday. My dad found this abandoned factory there. I love that, through the magic of technology, he can take pictures, upload them, and email them to me across the country, and moments later I can add them to my blog.
It used to be a furniture factory, and coincidentally, Lucille Ball’s father, Henry, worked there.
I love the stained glass and arched windows. Even factories were beautiful in the past. There’s something eerily beautiful about this place still.
The morning sun shone through the windows and the holes in the roof, revealing sturdy machinery that look like, with a little TLC, would still work today.
Don’t forget to check out all the other shadow shots from people all over the word. They’re at Hey Harriet.
