Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Those who follow my blog know I was invested in the fate of the Island Station structure in St. Paul. Today, I reflect on that passage with a camera photo I took today that I am calling “All That Remains”. The second picture is from the Fall photo shoot.

In Memorium: Island Station Power Plant

Even as I write this, Island Station Power Plant, built in the 1920’s and the scene of my Fall photo-shoot and escapade, is being torn down. The city of St. Paul, its council deadlocked on preservation, ended up selling the plant to a developer. The grand dame on the river, home to all manner of folks- including artists- will soon be a ghost. My “if I had a few million, I would  create a new art colony” fantasy is truly just that.
