The Old Factory

Alcalá de Henares, a city of contrasts. You can find old-style houses (as the houses in the centre), towers with a beautiful modern design (as 'La Garena' Tower), awesome natural landscapes (as 'Los Cerros' Park) and industrial areas. This is the story drawn in the walls of one of these last ones places.

Near of one of the most important malls in the city, there was a factory dedicated to make vehicle's bodyworks. I don't know why, but it was abandoned. Now, its walls are the canvas for a lot of urban artists.

Recently, I wrote a post in Astaroth's World about the urban art there. Now, I bring you some black and white pictures from these interesting ruins.

I hope you enjoy.

The calm before the storm

Yesterday I arrived at home from work, and I could watch some beautiful skies  typically previous to a storm. White and voluminous clouds in a clear blue sky that they went turned to grey tones.  Here, some pictures of that contrast.

The above picture  is an image of El Viso hill. This is one of the more charismatic hills of the area (like the nearby Ecce Homo hill). In this picture you can see the transition between the left storm area and the right sunset. The rain is showed in the storm area moved by the air.

Technically, the picture was taken with a tiny aperture (f/18) and short focal length lenses (28 mm). The aim was have a great depth of field and a wide angle panoramic.

The exposition time was a little long (1/10 s). In general, all these pictures were taken with a tripod. The poor light of the last hours of the day do it necessary.

The previous pictures show the grey clouds that fly above the The House of the Crazy Man, an old sinister ruined mill.

The last one and the below picture are been processed with HDR methods, deleting excessive clear or dark areas.

Maybe you remember that tunnel from "The dress and the ruins". In that session, the beautiful Viki Taneva posed in the same tunnel that communicates The House of the Crazy Man with La Isla y El Val park.

The previous picture is a backlit photo with an frontal flash. Without flash, it would be a silhouette. With flash I try to compensate the back light with a dramatic feeling.

Finally, I show a picture of the "making of", made with my new mobile with automatic parameters...

I'm frightened about my mobile takes automatically better pictures than I take

I hope you enjoy it!
