These are the remaining chimneys of an old brick factory, founded in 1882, the same year the city was founded, by a czech inmigrant named Francisco Ctibor to provide for the construction of the main public buildings and infrastructure. He came from Paris where he worked with Gustave Eiffel and he stayed here after winning the contract for building the sewer system of the city, then he bought the factory and transformed it into a modern facility by those times stantards by incorporating german machinery.
The old factory functioned until 1995 when it moved to modern facilities.
The site of the old factory has since then been rented to walmart, but they kept a few parts of the site where these chimneys remain because they are considered of historical interest.

hi allen

very nice contribution to the theme. i like the POV, showing the detail & the whole subject at the same time.


Fantastic light, and the bright sun is obscured well by the chimney. Really creative to present it in this colour scheme which I think suits the image subject perfectly.
Thanks for sharing, I'm inspired!

ciao allen...bel soggetto....grande contrasto luci ombre.....bella composizione...

Nice tones and good texture and shadows.

Hello Allen,I like your composition.The colours are quite dramatic, suggesting ,to me,smokiness from the chimneys.
The brickwork shows up well in the strange light.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Excellet image, the composition, the colors, very well presented. Thank yo
María josé

a very interesting composition, and a good bonus with the special mood of the sky and the light

Hello Allen,

The viewpoint allows us to see the close details of the brickwork and the larger view of the enire chimney which is very interesting. Nicely composed.
The strange hue in the sky adds a sort of atmosphere, perhaps pollution, perhaps threatening weather; who knows!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

There is an atmosphere that emerges from this image. It makes me a little thought to métropolis of Fritz Lang.
