Harmony Borax Works, Part I or II or Something

DaGoddess @ 00:53

I only know of one other person who spent as much time as I did on the fence around the Harmony Borax Works — fellow traveler, Diane. I can’t wait to see her photos. Haven’t seen any of them on Flickr yet.

Anyhow, I obviously had way too much fun with the fence as evidenced by the following photos.

There were other sights of note there, too.

Funny, that’s the only shot not fence related I’ve processed. Guess we have to go back to what I know.

  1. I like the bottom one best. I think it looks like the road is endless, and if you walk it you will find a surprise at the end. BTW, check out my site again. I posted yesterday about the change in feminism, and I posted some picks this morning of my trip to the Dale Chihuly Exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens. Let me know what you think of my waaayyyyy amateur photography. :-)

  2. Oooh, I bet you were very inspired by that visit. I can’t wait to hit AZ again so I can go.

  3. Difficult. I like the door because I love door and window shots… and I like the fourth one because of the vista but I like the last one because of the shadows.

  4. I like the shadows on the last one myself. That was the whole point of that shot. Nobody else saw it.

  5. Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

  6. Thank you. I only have about 1300 more photos to go through.

  7. I’m glad you spent so much time on that fence. All kinds of great angles to play with. I too like #5, the one with the shadows, because of the shadows as a double-portrait.

    #4 I like because it teaches the viewer that the intricate construction of the fence is more than the simple straight lines like the rear-area shot implies. Or at least I like to think that that part of the fence is just as intricate :-)

    #3 I like because of what you taught us before about looking for faces where no one else might. I see the man– Jimmy Durante? Geronimo?– on the left of the door opening, and to me the stonework above has revealed yet another dragon! [This time with his mouth shut so the steam doesn’t escape.] He and Geronimo are both looking to the right, so now I wish you had turned to photograph what they are glaring at :-)

    #1 and #2 came out great in both color and B&W. Each type reveals things the other hides. Hmmm. Looking again, I see that they are cropped slightly differently. So they aren’t the same photo? Those two would look fine side-by-side in the same frame.

  8. #1 and #2 are different photographs. One just benefited from B&W conversion better.

    #3 is W.C. Fields. I did take a photo as much as I could from his point of view, but it didn’t sing to me. Not with a parking lot in the middle of the image. Sad, isn’t it?

    Glad you were able to see the shadow play in the last and the way the fence wended its way about in the other. I really loved this stop more than I thought I would.

  9. If it was WC Fields, then he was probably staring at a liquor bottle in the parking lot that you didn’t see :-)
