The Crane Lofts. Formerly Crane Co. (© William Anthony)

This view, from the West looking eastward, of our building The Crane Lofts, will soon be a thing of the past. On the lot where I stood to take this photo, a 9-story office building has just broken ground. I don’t lament progress, or downtown re-development, especially here in the Pearl District (an *almost* completely fabricated community that rose from industrial train yards; barring these old buildings, of course). My heart just aches knowing the gorgeous sunset light will never again grace this masonry or the original, single-pane windows. I suppose it’s just more justification for the art of photography. Again, the camera, and this photo, will serve as a time machine for someone in the future.

Late night, kitchen island still life. Shot with a Fuji X-E2 with a Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 S.S.C. manual focus lens. I continue to be blown away by the low-light ability of this camera’s sensor.  (© William Anthony)
