"Turquoise Trio" by Stephanie Avery.
Abandoned oil refinery, Toronto, Canada
I've been living in Toronto for over 15 years. Since my arrival I've seen a thriving urban exploration scene dwindle as condo developments swept in like a swarm of termites. Imagine my surprise when I learned an oil refinery I had been passing by for years had been abandoned for nearly as long as my residency. While proper environmental efforts had been made to maintain the property, the land is still much too toxic to consider having people live on it. It probably wasn't the healthiest place to spend a summer afternoon but it sure made for photogenic subject matter. (As of 2020 these have been demolished. Hopefully not to make room for condos)
