Eagle Point Refinery

Eagle Point RefineryBack in the 1980s, I went to art school, and I along with all of the other illustration majors were required to take a minor course in photography. We had to shoot the photos as well as process the negatives and make prints. I don’t recall what the particulars of the class assignments were although I can tell from looking at the negatives which were the assignments and which ones were shot just to finish off a roll. The shots to finish a roll are a lot more interesting. While my fellow students mostly resided and shot their photographs in the vibrant metropolis of Philadelphia, I lived and did most of my shooting in and around the staid and solid small town of Westville, New Jersey.

Pictured above is the Eagle Point Refinery across the Delaware from Philadelphia.

    Really? It was on the Delaware, and I guess it was a fairly important facility at one time. It was owned by Texaco back then. Now Sun Oil owns it.
