Industrial Photos

Photos by MJ Klein

I’ve been kicking around the idea of a new blog for industrial photos. It seems that people love food photos and blogs about food, but I am not sure of the appeal of industrial photos to the general public. I certainly have a raft of them from several countries, taken over a number of years.

Recently Michael Turton visited a factory in Hsinpu where I introduced him to my friend Tony Lin. I was there yesterday and took more photos (this time of copper pouring) in addition to the ones taken earlier in the week. I’d like to present these photos and ask: Are these interesting? Should I create a separate blog for industrial photos? I would appreciate feedback.

Tony Lin, despite being the owner of the factory, personally handles some aspects of the process.

Hot hot hot!

Shell molds after being poured. These shells have been “hot-topped” with an insulating material over the riser to slow the cooling process.

  1. well michael, personally i don’t think you need to start a separate blog just for industrial photos, however it would be great if you can post more industrial photos here.
