With the Everett Mill it was the many stairways that captivated 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 construction. As opposed to other areas in the mill where the windows were stacked together, these were lined up individually up against the many columns for the length of the floor. I’m sure there’s a good reason for both methods, but I have no idea what they would be. Anyway, this arrangement made for a really nice composition with the contrast of lines and patterns, and seemed perfect for a B&W conversion.
On a related note, I wanted to report that the April 6th Historic Mills Photo Workshop has reached capacity. But fear not. We will soon be announcing our second workshop coming later this spring. Stay tuned!
