Pressure Gauge1

pressure_gauge_1i’m in love with textures, i can’t help it. this gauge was one of a very few interesting pieces in a huge building down at 11th avenue and Howard, just north of downtown St. Louis. unfortunately the building was demolished before i could get a model in there with me to shoot photographs of. it took me two years of waiting patiently and driving past the location once a week before someone had torn plywood off of one of the larger loading dock doors. that’s when i saw my chance and made a run of it. the natural light that streamed throughout the place, from the skylights and holes in the roof, was absolutely breathtaking.
