Escape Routes

Walking around to the north side of the Stone Mill, I noticed the interesting patterns of these fire escapes and had to grab a shot.  The reason I’m posting this image today is because I’m pleased to report that no one tried tried using these this past weekend during our first Historic Mills Photography Workshop.  🙂

The workshop actually went really well, and based on the feedback we’ve received so far, I think it’s safe to say that our participants felt the same way.  Bob Lussier and I were so fortunate to have such a wonderful group of photographers joining us for the day, as well as the support of our incredible partners at Everett Mills Properties and the Lawrence History Center.   And we’ve already seen some beautiful images posted on our facebook page from some of the participants, which really brings a smile to my face.

So now I’ll end this post with a quick plug for our next workshop coming up on May 18th.  There are only a handful of spots remaining, so please come visit our web page for more information.

    Interesting set of fire escapes for sure – don’t they run into each other? Could slow down that escape! Congrats on the workshop Steve – hope the May date will be just as successful!

    Fantastic Steven. I love the details in the brick and the criss crossing of the fire escape. Glad to hear your first workshop was a success.

    I really like the symmetry of this image and what a stroke of luck to find the two rusty-red doors to add a bit of contrast.
