  1. J Fair is the photographer. What about the actual demolished Kaiser Aluminum Refinery, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Was that done as part of a project. I guess I am asking is it designed landscape?
    Or just an example of “accidental beauty”? Do you know anything about it?

    Either way what a great image.

  2. I just scanned the image out of the latest HDM – I don’t think this is a designed landscape, just what was left after the refinery was demolished.
