From eastern Minnesota:  This is actually just one piece of a giant agribusiness complex. Each section appears to have sprung up spontaneously as needed.

What is this “planning” of which you speak?

To underscore that impression of random construction, I simplified the components by softening the edges and details and intensifying the colors.

Wow.  Print it, paint it or turn it into fabric art?

I’ll show you more shots of this site this week. Oh, yes. Huge grain elevators AND a waterfall yet to come, all in one convenient location.

    Love this . I saw a quilt pattern like this of NYC going from dawn to night. I can’t find it anywhere,but will still look. Photos like this call to me.

  4. Cezanne would’ve been inspired. Nice.

    can’t help but think of sitting in the planning meeting for yet another addition…..

    ….and what I really want know is ……gathering all of those practical guys who made all those practical decisions over the years, show them this work and find out if they can see the beauty….what do you think….can “they” see it?

    • Having mulled and pondered this question all day, I still don’t have an answer, though I’m leaning to the idea that most would not consider beauty and function as having any relationship whatsoever with each other and they were all about the function.
