The Refinery

I’m not quite sure what this place was; I was on a tour boat in New Orleans, LA, and noticed it on the other side of our tour. Although the colors are slightly modified, it felt grey. On the other side, we were exploring the wonders of the coast, learning about the waters and culture. That side was superficial. This side was the reality; an industry consumed city, puffing and working, creating the grey. I think of the photo as a reminder, showing that even places as culturally preserved as New Orleans can be tarnished by the wrath of world we live in.
