There are becoming fewer & fewer abandoned buildings like this in the Des Moines downtown, as they're being turned into lofts, restaurants & shops. Most would call a building like this an eyesore, but I like turning them into art. I'm used to the funny looks people give me when I'm out shooting this kind of crap.

The surreal sky comes from the downtown light pollution and 10 second shutter. The base of the building is illuminated by firing an off camera flash during the exposure (that's why it is cooler in color than the top of the building).
