I’ve got a thing for stacks… there’s still a big one in NC. With lots of memories.
At our last summer in the old building at Ametek, our neighbor company was tearing down the old Gougler plant next door. After months of watching the building come down, they brought down the old stack with explosives. We all watched from our building – front row seats. If you Google “gougler stack video” you can probably find it on You Tube.
One of my friends used his digital SLR on automatic with a big zoom to take a great series of stills – actually more fun and detailed than the video.
Yeah, I’ve got a soft spot for them too…I guess that comes from working a good portion of your life under them. It used to be desirable to have them in a town. Now nobody wants them…
Very brooding image which I suspect matches you view
