Soho foundry chimney

Soho foundry chimney
On the Birmingham Main Line Canal ...the humped bridge just before the chimney building is a listed roving bridge at the entrance to the Soho Foundry Loop canal (now dry) ...The chimney is part of the Soho Foundry works which was built in 1795 by Matthew Boulton and James Watt at Smethwick, West Midlands to manufacture steam engines.
It is now owned by Avery Weigh-Tronix, and used for the manufacture of weighing machines.

Wanted to give it an old look but did not like the sepia version so tried to make it have a more recent 70's retro feel..I have lots of old pictures I took in the 70's that have light leaks and streaks and stains just like this..digital processing is so clever!!

TSC ~ Something that evokes a mood...for me this is just pure nostalgia!

For the another link in the chain group..linking modern day industry with industrial revolution industrial remains..

I love the marble sky reflected in the canal ... looking so pristine now but in days gone by this would have been a hive of industry and all the grime and pollution that goes with it. A lovely moody capture.
