Crumbling grain elevators near Glasgow in northern Montana stand alone. There are many newer versions kept busy with the grain harvests in the area. I like the breezy ones, made of wood.Highway 2Cannon Rebel, from a bus window

this image has such a wonderful painterly quality about it and composition that holds this viewers attention !! Beautifully done Kay !!!
Thanks, the people in the bus kept wondering why I was clicking the camera. The lady across the aisle said, “I can’t see why you’re taking pictures.” I walked four blocks from lunch to take the elevators being used that day in Chinook. She said, “um, why?”

Thanks so much, Michael.
Thanks so much, Corri.
Beautiful capture of this very unique style Grain Elevator!! Great texture to complement the tones and textures of this deteriorating building!! I like the breezy ones too Kay!! They have the most stories to tell!!
Thanks so much. The only lines to break up the plains for miles and miles. I had the bus driver alert me that they were coming up.
Awesome photo. Kay, I really like the “Old” feel of this piece. It really enhances the look of the elevators.
Thanks, Scott. I hope they don’t tear them down anytime soon.
Beautiful shot,Kay. I’m also a painter, and you really do have that painterly look to it. Though you probably wouldn’t have painted the power lines..lol! I can relate to the people wondering what you were shooting, I notice that too when I’m shooting old fences and such..:))
Thanks so much. I had the power lines out and put them back in. It just was more authentic and I might have drawn them in, LOLI think my inability to do the fine lines I used to have made my painting looser and can’t wait to get my studio set up with soft paints. (lots of dried up tubes in there now!)
from a bus window…. wow you made it work. great job.
Thanks, I had to grunge the reflection of the guy in the baseball cap behind me.
Really ! Hell of a job Im impressed.
Beautiful and nostalgic work.
Thanks, it sure took me a long time to appreciate them. I had to go away and come back.
