Art & Architecture
I went to my favorite museum while up in New England - MASS MoCA, in North Adams, Mass. I have done posts about this place before, and I will do more in the next few days. But I thought I would start with this. One of the attractions to me, besides the amazing exhibits, is the architecture - a series of buildings which were once the Sprague Electrical Company, where capacitors were made for electronics assemblies. When I am here, I find there are so many things to photograph - so many that I have trouble picking between art and architecture. So I will start with this photograph from an abandoned former powerhouse. This was once a huge boiler for heating the factory - there are three in this building. The walls and insulation have been removed, and only the boiler tubes remain. What a cool looking room, don't you think?
