Ad Libs: A photographer's vision in oil
Original post made by Rebecca Wallace on Nov 18, 2009
Burtynsky now has an exhibition focusing on oil up at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. (in case you happen to be passing through). Sprawling images of old derricks, ship-breakings and trashed cars are compelling even online.

Sometimes an engineer's aesthetics get in the way of engineering. The piping configuration in the foreground of the refinery picture uses four 90 degree elbows where two 45 degree ells would have accomplished the same routing with a third less material and a significant reduction in pumping cost.

I don't usually get the engineering viewpoint on the art I cover, so that was particularly interesting. Thanks, Walter!
