Holly Street Power Plant

This past Friday I was able to join a great group of, mostly HDR (High Dynamic Range), photographers on a fun adventure.  Thanks to Mike Connell (read the backstory here), we had the opportunity to tour and photograph the decommissioned Holly Street Power Plant.  The power plant is set to be deconstructed in a matter of months.  

This first image I feel properly conveys the amount of rust I saw at the power plant.  I was struck by the sign and the realization that people must crawl into that opening.

I arrived late and only had about an hour to photograph the place.  I mostly concentrated on details details here and there.

I had never heard of a "flame scanner" but it sounded cool.

I would love to get the opportunity to go back and shoot there again before this bit of Austin history disappears forever.
