Osburn, Idaho

Next door to Northwest Academy
of Music’s original location is
A marvelous company called
Computer Restore.

On the north wall of their
store is a famous pen and ink sketch
of the abandoned Osburn Mine.

While living in the Silver Valley, I noticed places like Mc Donald’s had
similar sketches.

I searched the Silver Valley until one day I came upon a cul-de-sac with a
driveway leading to the
entrance of that mine.

A chain link fence bordered the vast mining acreage making it impossible
for anyone to get close to the abandoned structure, but by strategically placing
my lens next to the holes of the
links, I was able to capture the
picturesque nature of
the scene.

In Photoshop I removed large pine trees and cleaned up ugly debris that
further blocked this
amazing sight.

Using Impressism techniques, it was transform from a run down
Industrial complex into
a work of art.
