Day 86: Industrial Rainbows at Old Sugar Mill

“Oh, we ain’t got a barrel of money…” but that doesn’t mean we can’t scrape together enough for the occasional date. Rob & I took a trip out to the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg, CA. It’s only about 15 minutes south of downtown Sacramento, features free wine tasting in a nice, cool indoor environment, fabulous views of the river and vineyards, and an amazing lot of crumbling outbuildings. While primarily a painter, I say it’s a photographer’s dream.

To be fair, Rob shot most of the images today. I was a little tipsy on Reisling, and hobbling around on broken concrete in wedge sandals was enough of a challenge at that point. I asked Rob to get a few specific images (like the orange box, green freight elevator and yellow window), I shot a few myself (the rainbow colored pipe, blue window) then I tweaked them for color and contrast boost.

Colors you see with your own eyes ‘in the wild’ can change a lot just depending on the light and time of day- plus everyone sees color a little differently- so these versions of these “industrial rainbow” images are how my painter eyes prefer to see them. Enjoy!

    Only an artist’s eye would see the beauty in the colors of these old relics. Yet they are beautiful. Really. I am awe inspired and will have to open my eyes more to the hidden beauty that surrounds us all.
