Photo Challenges

30 Days of Photos IV: Transparent

Day 20 of MikeWJ and Ziva‘s 30 day photography challenge. Today’s theme is Transparent. As in ‘see through’. I can’t remember if the definition of Transparent means that a thin material through which light passes needs to be present, and frankly, I’m too lazy to look it up. And besides. I have this thing to go to.

Alright, clearly my excuses are transparent as well. Here. It’s a former industrial building turned into a grocery store and parking lot. They left the old walls and the girders for the roof top. The walls and the ceiling are ‘transparent’.

Fun fact: This space was a former factory in the 1930’s-40’s that producedΒ  tanks for the WWII war effort.

Now head on over to Ziva‘s, link up, and see how everyone else interpreted today’s theme.

  • Very interesting picture, Mike. And I also love the fun facts!

  • A unique interpretation of transparent, and a very nice pic. I love that they left the old structure there.

  • What a cool structure! That’s just the sort of thing I would love to take photos of. πŸ™‚

  • Gorgeous photo!

  • I love when architects and builders leave behind the skeletons of the original buildings. There are just too many beautiful old buildings that hold our past that have been torn down and replaced by glass and steel eyesores.without an ounce of charm. Really neat take on this one, Mike.

  • And the brick exterior forms a “t” as does the steel structure. Your angles are always so interesting.

    Ooh, what a clever interpretation and it’s a great photo, too. Hats off to the architect, too.

  • Is that near the brewery? It’s very cool. Beats just seeing a big box store.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    That’s a very cool structure, and I’m proud of them for leaving it intact. Here, we would’ve mowed it down and put in a larger store to boost sales.

    Good idea for a photo, too, Mike.

  • I love that they kept part of the old building, instead of completely flattening it. Great photo too.

  • Tami Von Zalez

    They kept the “bones” of the building – nice!

  • That’s a very cool structure, and I’m proud of them for leaving it intact. Here, we would’ve mowed it down and put in a larger store to boost sales.

    Good idea for a photo, too, Mike.

  • I think that is Transparent. Close enough. Cool pic.

  • Such a beautiful photo…. I love this!

  • I love that you offered up a the “excuses are transparent” just to cover your basis. The picture is awesome though, so you had it handled…no excuses needed.

  • I always like it when they leave parts of the original building intact.

  • Thanks! Fun facts are fun!

  • It’s a great reminder of how they used to build πŸ™‚

  • I know it!

  • Thanks, Linda πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Cheryl. It’s one in very few that they do manage to preserve. Granted there’s not much left of the old building, but it is a unique re-use of it.

  • Good eye.I didn’t even notice it.

  • Thanks, and I’ll let them know πŸ˜‰

  • Nope, this isn’t far from the Olympic Stadium. It’s part of the old Angus Yards complex.

  • Am I hearing an echo? echo….

  • Thanks, it’s really just a parking lot now, but there is some charm to it.

  • Yep, it’s quite visually pleasing.

  • Close enough is good enough.

  • Jackal

    Like it.

  • That’s actually really cool. Nice job.

  • Excuses or not, it’s a beautiful shot!
