Another cool shot that makes me wonder...Do you go looking for these odd structures, or do they just appear?

@Nill@: i'm embarrassed to admit that i don't know exactly what this is for - corn i'm guessing.
Intriguing find. And shot to perfection. (Sparks has been a goldmine for you!)

@Bill: thanks bill. i spend two long days there twice a year, as my girlfriend scours the flea market for hidden treasure. i guess you can tell i enjoy the sights.
This is a solid black and white. Really good. Uh, oh, a small confession. (I'm so embarrassed) When I first opened this up - my first thought was: "Wow, cool - a think tank for lawyers!"

@Stephen Phillips: that's pretty bad stephen... (might even call it a corny joke?)
Love the dark triangle shadow pointing to the door. Odd, interesting structure and the shadows as always are terrific.

what is this shelter, anayway a good and intringing shot

@kerfendal: yes, but for crops, not people or animals
Terrific image Grant, but what is the round container... a pig shelter maybe ?

@Observing: thanks mike. i know this much - it's for plant rather than animal life.
One of those little corners I love to discover. This a relic, you might put silage, shell corn, or grain in one. best...jerry

@ordinaryimages: thanks for the information jerry. that's about what i thought. do you have a name for it?
I really like this, things I never see here, and they are just so intriguing to me. As always, I just love your tones and good eye!

wow -- very cool indeed! what is the relevance of Sioux? a mysterious shot -- quite intriguing!!

@dj.tigersprout: thanks dj. jerry at ordinaryimages gave me enough information to google your question - it appears to be a grain bin made by the sioux steel company of sioux falls, south dakota.
If they let it go much longer, it'll be hidden from site. Nice one.

"do you have a name for it?" Simply called bins, Sioux bins, Butler bins etc.

@ordinaryimages: thanks jerry. that was enough for a google search and so a little more information.
This is the one NASA lost on one of those Apollo missions. Haha. Nice find.

I can't even imagine shots like this saying anything interesting in color. You're a master of b&w.
