This morning I took my camera club to the Waterbird Regional Preserve in Martinez at the crack of dawn. There’s a refinery right across the way from the preserve, and I’ve always thought it was such an interesting juxtaposition of nature and man.
I didn’t get anything spectacular but it was a fun outing!
Warning: This is a departure from the joy of the Christmas season!
The other morning I drove some miles away to take a picture of smoke coming out of a refinery. I specifically went at 10 am to capture the light just right. B&W is not something I do often, and in fact I haven’t done much since I started taking pictures.
Some day I hope we get away from needing these refineries. As modern as I feel sometimes with my wireless, clouded, slimline devices, I realize how crude (literally) we really are in how we sustain our society.
