layers & texture
Images captured in the Gowanus Canal.
A peculiar segment of NYC's most populous Borough, Brooklyn. The oddities of the Gowanus rest around the vacant lots, emptied out factories and that on weekends ( I cannot speak for weekdays) the streets are very nearly devoid of other people.
Apocalyptic is one word that could be used to describe it, although it's clearly still engaged with contemporary society. The Barrack Obama sticker clarifies that- Also peaceful, the streets are wide, there's a wind and minimal sound beyond the F-Train's occasional click and push over the bridge.
There is a tremendous amount of texture and even the grays hint on various takes on color and expression.
Supposedly a Whole Foods is going to be installed in this area, unfortunate? The landscape and contents within it will certainly transform.
