For all the times I’ve photographed the Stone Mill, and there have been many, this composition is one I had never tried to capture before. As soon as I looked up from this spot the other day, I knew I wanted to get these three sections of the building together in a single image. I loved the peaks and angles of the roof line, as well as the parallel lines from the shadows, and thought it all came together well. Unfortunately the sky was pale blue and boring, so I played around with some textures to give the image a bit more life.
These sections of the building house the stairways, as well as some unique little rooms and spaces full of terrific details to photograph. Bob Lussier and I are very excited about bringing our first workshop participants through these places this coming Saturday as part of the Historic Mills Photography Workshops. Although this weekend’s event is full, we have another one coming up on May 18th. Please visit our website for more information and to sign up.
