This is a scene from one of the less attractive sides of Wichita. Grain elevators are a common sight here, as they are all across the plains. I also seem to be obsessed with old water towers that look like rockets on the launch pad. This particular one has been bedeviling me for years, this is the first time I actually stopped to photograph it. The clouds were interesting on this day, so I stopped for a grand total of about 90 seconds to grab a few frames. (This involved parking at the side of a busy street in not the greatest area of town. ) It’s an HDR, monochrome conversion with a little extra post processing.
