This is a shot of Western Rubber. It is being torn down after decades. It hasn’t been used in quite a while. This was in my neighboorhood, when I was growing up. It brings back memories of when I was in junior high school..ha ha. It will be torn down all the way by may of 2011. This was shot in Goshen, Indiana USA 1/13/2011. Shot with fujiflm finepix S1000 fd camera in black and white. Here is a song from my teenage years, that I still listen to..????.

I hear the sound in a metal way
I feel the power rolling on the stage
’Cause only one thing really sets me free
Heavy metal, loud as it can be

Baby I was born to play music
I am a man with a screaming guitar
There’s a light in a middle of the stage
And in a minute I’ll be wearing it all
I don’t know another way of living
Man I couldn’t really care
Give me a pair of jeans and a riff that’s mean
And girls that love to share

Heavy metal, metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze

Living like there’s no tomorrow
Yeah Currie says we’re on the edge
He said man you’re really graffic
This bands a social wedge
Yeah we all got hearts made of metal
And our blood is hot molten rock
And If I don’t hear the sound of metal
I go into shock

So mister D. J. play just one for me
You know the one with the crashin’ and the screams
’Cause only one thing really sets me free
Heavy metal loud as it can be

I love to capture photos of everything. My favorite things to take photos of are nature, fall, and big cats. I hope one day big cats can be free to roam again. They deserve to be free like us.
