 Wide-angle shot of the steel factory: Testing a vertical panorama

Taken during  a visit to the steel works in Dneprodsershinsk, Ukraine. The motive for this visit was to investigate the options to re-use the waste slags from the smelting process.

Berlin Ostkreuz 1994

I took this one with my Canon A1 in 1994, had it printed in 60×40 cm some years later, and as I was unable to find, let alone scan the negatives, I took a photograph of it with my Olympus C720 point-and-shoot. Not ideal, but sufficient for this web site. Some day I’ll find the negative, or have the print scanned…

But anyway, I love all the different types of clouds, those in the sky, the dust, and the soot leaving the chimney for the last time. The man in the foreground seems to interact with the collapsing chimney, but that is all coincidence. There was no time to set up any reasonable composition when the thing blew up..
