POTD - BWL Smoke Stacks
©2011 Kristin Corlett
Industrial buildings, electrical towers, utility poles, street lights...all of these fascinate me. I like the symmetry of them I think, but also the use and decay of these items. The Board of Water and Light (BWL) power station and smoke stacks are an icon in Lansing and something I love to photograph each time I come to town. A new plant is soon going to take the place of this one and Wynken, Blynken and Nod will be shut down. I'm almost terrified, OK, so I'm being a bit dramatic here, but I'd hate to see these stacks torn down. I have no idea of the future of the BWL smoke stacks, but they will always be a part of my memories of Lansing, MI.
