Grain Elevator

Grain Elevator

One of Minneapolis’ nicknames is Mill City. Home of Genral Mills and Pillsbury, this is where all the grain from the Upper Mississippi River Valley and points West comes to. Where does all this grain end up? Right here in the elevators. These things are everywhere! Sticking up into the sun like great ships, they catch the light and provide for some interesting shapes. They are simple forms, but also really big.

Yes, I worked this image in post. I added the vignette to focus the eye on the main tower, upped the contrast to get it to look skuffed up and increased the blue of the sky. And a few other things.

I’ve been getting comments about the incredible colors in my photos and I thought I should confess that I’m doing this in post. Reality doesn’t always live up to how I see it.
