I like shooting industrial things. Sophisticated places and machines that have been abandoned are even more interesting. This is the control room of a decommissioned power plant that we were given permission to document. Unlike “caveman” who broke in and tagged his name with white paint, I was given a tour by officials so I was able to take my time and observe. I could have spent hours just shooting the gauges and dials that were specially built just for this room. The long “desk” on the right contained 100 knobs and jacks and little signs that said things such as “F8bc” and “TRX9″. Not long ago people worked in this room who knew what that meant and what every switch did, what the proper electrical readings were on those gauges and how to adjust them when they were out of range. They spent their days here running the controls that fed the fuel to the boilers that superheated the water that made electricity that ran the computer I’m using right now to type this. It’s now about a year later and this room has long been demolished. At least I got to see it. So, evidently did “caveman”.
