O'Hare Bleak

It's been a while since I posted a photo taken with my Nishika camera, so here's one.

This was taken in April, '07, in a parking lot close to one of the runways at Chicago's O'Hare Airport. The plane coming in for a landing, the telephone poles, and the large expanse of gray, grainy sky combine to create a bleakness that I like here.

I tried a cyanotype print of this image on neon green fabric, but I didn't really like the way it turned out. This photo needs all of the gray to be effective.
