    Ventured out to downtown Durham the other night, finally got to shoot a few things I have been wanting to shoot for a while now.

    This is a pretty crappy pic of an old generator. You can see the cooling tower from the Durham Freeway, pretty close to Brightleaf Square. The dark colored building on top of the brick structure is actually the end of a set of train tracks......our best guess is that they backed trains up to this house back in the day to dump coal, or whatever fuel the generator used......

    This bridge/tunnel is right on the edge of Duke's campus, and is repainted every year by some of the freshman class. Some interesting work out there.....

    This is the Ready-Mix concrete plant off of South Pettigrew Street, near Alston Avenue.....

    By ok you mean horrible, right? :ugh:

    The second to last image in the first post is really nice. You should lose those cheesy borders though, they suck hard.

    The border police is pretty gay. :greddy:Some of you tools should realize that what YOU like or dislike isn't universal.

    your borders are ugly and detract from the photo.
