Shell Shocked

Shell Shocked

Casa Grande, Arizona

Deep in the desert of the Southwest we stumbled upon what appeared to be alien craft,
almost completed gutted with all traces of technology stripped away.

Actually, these domes are relics of a factory that was not completed. My understanding is that
they were constructed for a dot com or software firm but were never finished.

Obviously a part of the dotcom bubble that has long burst. Stark documentary work that you have captured perfectly, Fred V

I like it just as much in color. Fabulous color and presentation of this cold war shelter looking factory. ~BV~

Maybe it was one of the many dot coms that my son has worked for and been laid off (like now ;-) Nice shot

Whatever they were built for, work amazingly as photographic subject. V
