Ducking Into the 21st Century

Aug 07, 2015 - Abandoned, B&W, Duck Mill, Lawrence, Mill - 2 Comments - Standard

The Duck Mill in Lawrence is an amazing mill that’s located between the Merrimack River and the North Canal in Lawrence, MA.  It’s about to begin a full renovation over the next year and a half, converting this beautiful old mill to a modern mixed-use facility.  Anytime one of these mills is rehabbed, I’m both happy […]

Weber House at Dusk

Jul 21, 2015 - Abandoned, Farm, House, Palouse - 7 Comments - Standard

  One of the highlights of our recent trip to the Palouse was the afternoon/evening we spent photographing the Weber House just outside of Pullman, WA.  It’s a fairly well-known landmark among photographers, and we weren’t at all surprised to see a dozen of them set up there when we arrived a little before sunset.  What […]

Weber House and the Milky Way

Jun 08, 2015 - Abandoned, House, Milky Way, Night, Palouse, Stars, Washington - 0 Comments - Standard

I just returned from an epic photography trip to the Palouse region of Washington state.  Four plus days of shooting some incredibly beautiful landscapes with a terrific group of photographers known as NxNW.  This was my first time joining this group, and it was absolutely amazing.  We visited many of the major spots in the area […]

The Office

It’s been quite a while since I posted an mill image.  Maybe you’ve missed them, maybe you haven’t, but I’m putting one up on the blog today regardless.  🙂 This is a shot from the Pacific Mill in Lawrence, and is what appears to be an office on one of the upper floors of the […]

Today’s image is from the recent Historic Mills Photo Workshop that Bob Lussier and I led at the Pacific Mill complex in Lawrence.  While the majority of our time during our workshops is spent teaching and providing guidance/tips on what to shoot, we do manage to find some time here and there to shoot some […]

Door in a Door

Jul 01, 2014 - Abandoned, Door, Franklin, Mill - 3 Comments - Standard

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, […]

Sawhorse in the Mill

It’s been awhile since I posted a mill image – well any image I guess – so here is one from the Pacific Mill taken this past weekend during our latest Historic Mills Photo Workshop.  Bob Lussier and I spent the entire day with a great group of photographers shooting a variety of buildings within the Pacific […]

Some of the more interesting things you find in the old mills in Lawrence are the writings/scribblings of those who have explored the mills in the past.  I’m assuming that whoever wrote “boo” on this door several times were either there at night, or had been there at night in the past.  The mills aren’t […]

Cart in the Attic

Mar 14, 2014 - Abandoned, Cart, Lawrence, Mill, Stone Mill - 3 Comments - Standard

One of my favorite mill scenes to photograph is the attic of the Stone Mill in Lawrence.  The 19th century architecture and gritty details of this abandoned space never ceases to fascinate me.  There are also several interesting items in the attic that you can use to anchor a shot of this open space, and […]

Today’s image is from the Everett Mill where Bob Lussier and I held our first Historic Mills Photo Workshop of 2014.  We had a great group of people join us, and had a fantastic time exploring and photographing both this mill as well as the Stone Mill.  It’s such a joy to be able to […]
