A few months ago, I went with Ag Works for a private tour of Carrie Furnace. I’m still not sure how to describe the experience. It was hot, humid, fraught with poison ivy, crumbling floors, and spiderwebs bigger than my entire torso. I loved it.

Silver Eye is doing a show for pictures taken there, so of course I’m submitting – along with half the city I’d imagine. It’s an incredibly popular subject for photos, and it’s easy to see why. It’s not just the rust, the crumbling walls, the trees growing from rooftops. There is an air of –

–brief pause while I get up to pace and try to find the word I want–
