Church Doors

Feb 03, 2015 - Boston, Church, Door - 3 Comments - Standard

I was up early Sunday morning, excited for a day of skiing before settling in for the Superbowl (Way to go Pats!).  When I learned that my friend was not feeling well and couldn’t ski, my first reaction was to jump back into bed and get more sleep.  (Yes, I could’ve gone by myself, but didn’t want […]

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, […]

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 […]

Hidden Stairs

Jan 31, 2014 - Abandoned, Door, Lawrence, Mill, Stairs, Urbex - 1 Comments - Standard

This is one of the many small stairways tucked inside one of the buildings at the Pacific Mill complex.   I’ve only had a few opportunities to photograph this mill, so I’m still finding lots of great things in there to shoot.  This door was closed when I first walked by it, and I initially […]

Ok, well maybe it’s not a real dungeon as evidenced by the fact that there’s a huge window (a dungeon no-no), as well as the fact that it’s three stories up in the Stone Mill.  But when I saw this door, a dungeon was the first thing that came to mind.  There’s even a chair […]

Blue Light Special

Oct 14, 2013 - Abandoned, Door, Lawrence, Lights, Mill, Night - 3 Comments - Standard

Bob and I had a great time this past weekend leading our first light painting workshop at the Stone Mill.  We had a small group of eager photographers with us, and really enjoyed showing how amazing the mill can be at night. We were too busy shining colored flashlights on the various subjects in the […]

Near is Far

Aug 07, 2013 - B&W, Bricks, Door, Lawrence, Mill, Pemberton Mill - 4 Comments - Standard

Just a quick post for today.  This image is from our recent photo walk in Lawrence, and is one of the doors at the back of the Pemberton Mill.  I was playing around with some different compositions, and liked the way the lines of the bricks lead to the “NEAR” door that seems far away. […]

Red Elevator

Jul 26, 2013 - Abandoned, Door, Factory, Gloucester, Massachusetts - 4 Comments - Standard

This is one of the images I made while at the abandoned Tarr & Wonson Paint Factory in Gloucester a few weeks back.  I probably wouldn’t have found this composition myself, but my kind tourguide from Ocean Alliance mentioned that he really liked this view through the open doorway and how the red elevator door […]

Stacked Windows

Feb 22, 2013 - Door, Duck Mill, HDR, Historic Mills Photo Workshops, Lawrence, Mill, Urbex, Window - 6 Comments - Standard

Whenever I’m in the mills and see these beautiful old-school windows stacked up somewhere, I’m always hopeful that they’re just waiting to be refurbished to be used again when these spaces are repurposed.  Or at least sold to someone interested in preserving their charm.  Many of the spaces we now photograph, including their windows, will […]
