    I risked my life for this shot, but didn't find that out for another 5 minutes...
    So I was shooting, and saw a maze of pipes and conveyors on the outside of the main building. That's when I smelled it. Then I noticed the sign declaring the building condemned due to poisonous gas. (Phosphine) That evening I got a huge headache, and forgot the name of the gas before I could look it up, so I had no idea what to do, but I'm fine now, and I like the shot that resulted :)

    The moral, always check to see if the building you are shooting is condemned...

    You got a great shot, almost worth risking life and limb for! I'm kidding, don't get getting yourself ill - we won't be able to see anymore great shots like this otherwise.

    Very nice shot. Love the angle, maybe you can take some sort of mask and go back...or on second thought don't :lol: You have a great way with taking pics others would think of. The simplicity in many of your images is quite nice, and something most wouldn't see!

    I love the skewed angle. Good looking out! Extra credit for enduring the noxious fumes.
