Silver Mine

 

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 Silver Mine.

 

While living in the Silver Valley,

I noticed that Mc Donald’s had

similar sketches decorating their walls.

 

I scoured the Silver Valley in search of

this mine and accidentally discovered it

when I made the wrong turn and

ended up in a cul-de-sac.

 

Straight ahead of me was a driveway

leading to the entrance of the 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 fence,

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 impressionism techniques,

that I created in Photoshop,

it was transform from a

run down Industrial complex

into a work of art.
