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 Impressivistic techniques, it was transform from a run down

Industrial complex into

a work of art.
