This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph some mills that I hadn’t visited in the past. I joined two other like-minded photographers to visit several properties in Franklin, NH. Franklin an old mill town located along branches of the Pemigewasset and Winnipesaukee rivers as they join the Merrimack. We had a fantastic guide for the morning, Todd, who has taken it upon himself to invest his time and money in working to revitalize this once busy city. He was kind enough to provide us access to several properties, as well as some interesting history of the town.
This particular image was taken in the former Stanley Mill from its upper floor. I was challenged to get the angle I wanted to line up the two doors, while also making sure I avoided the huge hole in the floor a few feet away. I thankfully managed to stay upright and avoid the hole, and was reminded once again why we sign waivers when accessing these properties. It can be a bit risky sometimes, but always worth it.
