General Mills Grain Silo

After my adventures the other night taking some night shots around the Cable Bridge area (guess I need to put more of those photos up) I decided to try some more night shots. My luck with the ugly “Ash Grove Cement Plant” made me think of the old abandoned General Mills grain silo off Clearwater Ave. in Kennewick.

Rather than shoot the picture from Clearwater Ave, I crossed the railroad track to shot it from the other direction, putting the empty railroad cars in the foreground. I think it turned out pretty well except for some of the bright lights that shined through.

I looked online for info about the grain silo but couldn’t find anything about when it was built, etc. Anyone know?
