Throw Away America Series - Kekaha Sugar Mill, Kauai, Hawaii by 

For most of the 20th Century, the Kekaha Sugar Mill was the centerpiece of agriculture on Kauaʻi’s west side. The sugar mill had a major influence in Kekaha’s development, including banking, employment, transportation, housing and utilities such as water and electricity. The mill employed several generations of local families. It closed in 2000 when the entire sugar industry in Hawaiʻi collapsed. The mill was purchased in 2005 by mainland investors who sold off its heavy machinery to other mills as far away as Africa.

    It is a fascinating image and a very creative use of selective colour. I love the hints of blue scattered about in a random display of well balanced abandon which somehow conveys a sense of order. Your composition is very pleasing Philip and I enjoy your writeup.
