Stacked Windows

Whenever I’m in the mills and see these beautiful old-school windows stacked up somewhere, I’m always hopeful that they’re just waiting to be refurbished to be used again when these spaces are repurposed.  Or at least sold to someone interested in preserving their charm.  Many of the spaces we now photograph, including their windows, will eventually be updated and used by new businesses and organizations.  And while I love the fact that they’ll soon be contributing to the revitalization of the local community, part of me feels saddened that one day they will no longer resemble their original state.  This is one of the things that drives my passion to photograph them… the ability to preserve their memory in my own little way.  That, and the fact that they also look really cool.

    […] me.  With the Duck Mill, it’s definitely the windows.  As I mentioned in a previous post about this mill, I just love these giant old windows with their individual panes and solid wood […]
