Sheds, Silos and Elevators, Texas, USA.

In American states such as Texas, where the plains dominate so much of the landscape, you cannot avoid the sheds, the silos and the elevators, most of which lie beside the railroads so grain and other agricultural produce can be transported easily and quickly. Often the largest buildings in the locality, even when surrounded by what qualifies locally as a town or a small city, the sheds, the silos and the elevators have an austere beauty all of their own, not least when passed by one of the many mile-long freight trains that criss-cross the continent. The sheds, the silos and the elevators in the photos below are in Paris, Amarillo, Dalhart, Dimmitt, Lubbock, Lockhart and Giddings.
