Monochrome and decayed buildings go hand in hand for me, especially after how yesterday’s post did not quite meet my expectations. While Sutter Creek (CA), Rusted Corrugated Exterior, Fall Oak Colors had to stay in color for the sake of the yellow, orange, and green oak leaves, I did not give a second thought to a monochrome conversion here.

The Knight Foundry was established in 1873 to manufacture heavy equipment for both the gold mine and timber industry throughout California’s Motherload region and remains as the last water-powered foundry in the United States. Samuel Knight created the impulse water turbines that powered the foundry and the impulse water turbines were used in the first hydroelectric plants in California, Oregon, and Utah.
