More from Lake Park

This little scene intrigued me. The strong horizontal movement of the building (with its two different sized sidings...both of which are flaking off) is broken up by a vertical board. The right and left side mirror each other with a series of boarded up windows.

Growing up in NW Iowa the elevator is the hub of the town where farmers from miles around bring their grain. Their size has always amazed me. But so has the complexity of shapes, colors, pipes and wires that string around each of the many interconnected buildings.

This is a composite of the Lake Park elevator. I haven't worked with too many composites or panoramics. Its quite fun to see the image emerge and yet for the perfectionist it is frustrating trying to get lines to match up (which they do not).
