Industrial Charleston - 2

Down on the harbor site is an old building, called the "Power House". The whole place around the house is filled with rusty industrial remnants that have seen long time ago very busy times, I'm sure for that.

Rust can be beautiful, sometimes - often it's not


Nature is taking slowly over all the parts that were used to do work with


more details...



This is part 2 of my industrial photo series captured down in the harbor. There are old empty buildings, no more used rusty machines falling apart on side.

I'm wondering why they don't practice rust waste disposal and use the territory for something good, something better than just an ugly, useless place.

Nice post... it's sad seeing the remnants of old industrial sites no longer being used just sitting there rusting away... but you seem to have taken it and turned it into an art form. Very well done!
Hope your day goes well...

Good morning, Susanne. Your latest posts are so different, yet very interesting to see. Your pictures, as always, are terrific! Thanks for sharing this new perspective. Even having lived in Charleston for about a decade, these are new and fresh to me. I've left a note on my blog today. :-) Thank you again!
