Effluent

Sewage Treatment Plant #1

Sewage Treatment Plant #1

These Photographs were made around a wastewater treatment facility located on South Braeswood Blvd. just East of Loop 610 in Houston, Texas.  The colors are there, but I have amplified them considerably.

    • Thank you John. That was done with an expensive camera and a cheap lens.

  17. I also like the one with the white squiggles on the rocks. In black and white. It’s eerie.

  19. The featured photo looks like a Monet painting. I would like to say “lovely”, but it is a bit sad, yes?

    • I have made some changes, but I assume you are referring to one of the color photos. To me it isn’t sad, it is simply about extracting color. If you like the Monet look, try the Europe drop down in the header and the Baltic button and the North America drop down and the California menu button, or just scroll like crazy.
