Monochrome Monday: NC Museum Park



To find other participants, please visit the home of Monochrome Monday.

Update - Several of the comments have mentioned the chimney so I thought I'd add this information about it. Until 2000 this circular brick tower served as a smokestack for the power plant of the former Polk Youth Center prison. Most of the prison buildings have been torn down, but the Museum kept the tower because it is like a monument on the horizon.

Wonderful silhouette - the branches look almost like lace.

Every body will wonder what this chimney is doing here. It's just to make a good subject for Monochrome. Good, Carver.

Liz said...

Wonderful juxtaposition of chimney and tree.

I'm going to update the post too but since several of you mentioned the chimney I thought I'd add this information from the museum in the comments: "Until 2000 this circular brick tower served as a smokestack for the power plant of the former Polk Youth Center prison.

didn't notice the tower until you mention it, I do love the trees, I think they are such wonderful subject to photograph

Wonderful! I love the spread of the branches of the tree. That chimney adds to the overall appeal of this picture. Great work.

To me the smoke stack acted like a second trunk to the tree. A nice effect.

Hey Carver! This makes a great monochrome shot. So far, only 49 people are participating in Monochrome Monday. It is kind of fun to switch to Black and White.

Oh Carver, the tree and the chimney are such perfect contrasts ..

kden said...

What a great shot. Thanks for the history of the chimney and showing it again.

Julie said...

Cool shot, a bare tree always lends itself well to black and white.

I was just driving by there weekend before last and wondering why they'd left that in place after everything else was torn down. And I remember thinking at the time that you'd probably know.

How weird is that?
