Here’s a quick gallery I shot of the power plant in Port Jefferson, N.Y. using Hipstamatic and shuffling through a few different films and lenses. This isn’t the first time I’ve taken photos of Port Jefferson Harbor; it’s a beautiful corner of Long Island.
An interesting fact: The natural gas-powered plant is only fired up a few days a year, yet the taxes the plant owners pay into the village support a major chunk of the school’s cash flow, which keeps taxes reasonable for locals. Unfortunately, the plant is in need of repowering, and it’s no certainty that the owners are willing to foot the bill to fix up the plant. There may come a time when Port Jefferson has to live without that big tax influx, and that’s going to sting if it happens. We cover this saga closely on Port Jefferson Patch.
As for the photos, the one with the reflection is my favorite, and it’s shot using the app’s Salvador Dali lens.
