Print for Sale…”The Old Shoe Factory Revisited”

Last week I posted that I was selling prints of one image. It was a black & white abandoned house and I did that as a test to see if A: Any would sell, and B: How many would sell. What happened was I sold 3 20X30’s, and a few 16X20’s. I also had some e-mails requesting a few other images to be made available so out of the 7 or 8 requested from my “rural landscape” series here is the next image being made available. All sales proceeds go towards funding this site.

“The Old Shoe Factory Revisited” – Shot in 2010 with the Leica M9 and Zeiss 35.

I shot this old factory in the afternoon while the sun was reflecting the shadow of the stairs on to the building. It adds a little tension to the image and with the light hitting the building it makes the colors POP in a warm glowing kind of way. In the 1970’s employees worked around the clock making shoes here and today it just sits, rotting away year by year. The detail in the print is incredible.

This image is available as an 8X10, 16X20 and 20X30. Prices are as follows:

  • 8X10 Archival Print  – $25 plus $5 ship. (allow 5-7 days)
  • 16X20 High Quality Archival Print – $50 plus $5 ship. (allow 2 weeks)
  • 20X30 High Quality Archival Print, $110 plus $5 ship (allow 2-3 weeks)

If interested, contact me and let me know what you need. You can pay via credit card using google checkout. Thank you!


  1. Nice print! What’s the camera, lens you used?

    Also I noticed that the image has no metadata, exif, etc. Might be good to keep your copyright there at least to preserve your work.

  2. Thanks. BTW, I had a couple of e-mails asking me if this image was an HDR. No, it is not an HDR. It is one image and I adjusted the color, contrast, and fixed the fence on the left. I also added a “low key” filter in color efex. The “look” here comes from the light, the color, the “low key” filter and of course the M9. Hopefully that answers any questions. 🙂

  3. Steve,
    I like your style. What better way to fund your site, than sell prints. Much more fun to get a print than just give a donation out to the thin air.
