Fleming, SK

The oldest standing elevator in Saskatchewan is in Fleming. It was built in the late 1800's. I manipulated the photo to make it antique grayscale in order to give it a look that, I think, better suits the age of the elevator.

Elevator Outlines

This photo of the elevators in Kinistino, SK has been altered, via Photoshop, to pick out the outlines of the elevators. By concentrating on the shapes, one's impression of the elevators takes on a different meaning. There are fewer distractions and the inherent beauty of the design of the buildings is emphasized and celebrated. It's more like a sketch and leaves the eye to fill in the details, allowing room for imagination.
