2011, Day 214 - Industry

A few weeks ago when traffic got bad I took an exit and cut through the country to bypass the congestion.  As I drove through Oregon City I saw this factory and, not for the first time, I made a mental note to return one evening with camera in hand.  Yesterday morning I occurred to me that my friend Julie had the day off and I asked her if she was interested in coming with me since it isn't far from her home.  She agreed and in the course of chatting we decided to invite another photographer so make a group out of it.  We had a lot of fun waiting for the sun to fully set (these were taken at 9:30 and you can still see the light from the sky reflected in the water).

I'm not sure if this is part of the Blue Heron Paper factory but I suspect that is the case.  The more I look at this photo the more fascinated I am by elements like the railroad tracks that lead into the factory, the large pipes that dive into the river, the tunnels that look like some sort of subterranean access.
