under the interstate

 When I was back in my hometown last month, I set out in the morning armed with my Olympus Pen E-P3 and a few lenses (including a 7.5mm fisheye and 12mm f/2.0) on a day destined to hit 98 degrees F by mid afternoon. I headed to the Interstate 80 overpass near 33rd and Vinton Street in Omaha to shoot the long abandoned giant grain elevators now used as a canvas for urban art. While the Emerging Terrain silo art installation provided some fun subject matter (see photos in this prior post), I also had fun shooting the urban setting around the public art in B&W to emphasize the grittiness and decay of the old grain elevators and adjacent interstate overpass, as reflected in these shots.
