The Art of Industry: Industrial Scenes Captures by Jeff Lindsay
Industrial settings can offer a combination of color, commerce, and chaos worth capturing in photography. I've tried to capture some of the hidden beauty of industrial scenes here. These are all copyright 2004-2013 by Jeff Lindsay.
Sunflowers in front of tanks at the old Geneva Steel facility near Provo, Utah, summer 2004. Was almost late for an important appointment because of the fun I was having at this scene. One of my all-time favorites. An 11 x 14 print of this is often on display at my home or office.
