Essroc Abandoned Factory 05 by earth-mover Essroc Abandoned Factory 05 by earth-mover
Essroc Cement Corp. Whitehall, PA

Camera: Nikon n6006
Lens: 35-80mm Nikon AF Nikkor
Film: Fujicolor 400

Negative scanned w/ Canon CanoScan 8800F

Another image from the Essroc Cement Corp. set. Part of a series documenting old & abandoned buildings in the Lehigh Valley.

We had less than 30 minutes of sunlight. I'm truly surprised at not only how many shots I got off in that short amount of time, but that almost all of them came out great (as far as lighting).

My Grandfather used to work at this factory, so I find some kind of symbolic meaning in photographing these left behind buildings.

I thought this was a cement plant. Looked familiar enough. I love the lighting in this, it's so warm.

Actually, I saw this picture and thought it was a grain elevator, given that in the small town I grew up in, the "skyline" was dominated by this massive old grain elevator, a large steel silo, and some radio towers... So for me, this is also in a way, symbolic...

Thank you for sharing this and getting your DD... :pat:

Pretty shot, but it's a shame that such structures get "wasted"-i mean abandoned.
Is there a specific reason why this Corp. closed this building?

There's a episode where the ghost adventures crew goes and investigates this place.
