After several months of phone calls and emails, Bob Lussier and I were finally able to obtain permission to access and photograph the Pacific Mill complex. While the main building is mostly occupied by various commercial businesses, several vacant buildings remain, although some are slated for renovations in the near future.
We only had a couple of hours, so we spent our time in the empty building featured here, as well as the turbine room of the main building (images to follow later). These huge empty spaces provide so many photo possibilities, and one of my favorites is to capture the light coming in through the enormous windows. I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to come back again in the winter when the sun is lower and is casting even longer light patterns across the floor.
