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 […]

Exit the Stone

Aug 20, 2013 - Abandoned, B&W, Historic Mills Photo Workshops, Lawrence, Mill, Stone Mill - 1 Comments - Standard

The Stone Mill at night is an incredible thing to photograph.  Between the random sources of light inside and the light coming in from the outside, all sorts of photo opportunities exist.  Aside from the main entrance of the mill, the third floor landing where I took this shot is probably the brightest area in […]

Clouds and Stone

After our recent Historic Mills photo walk around the Lawrence mills, I spent a little time trying some long exposures with the Stone Mill.  It was mid-day, but there were some great clouds moving quickly over the mill which looked to have potential.  I experimented with a variety of shutter speeds to finally get the […]

Today’s image is one I grabbed during our second Historic Mills Photo Workshop this past weekend.  After seeing Bob Lussier’s post on his blog yesterday, I was inspired to copy him and do something similar. While my time during the day was spent working with our participants, I did have my camera over my shoulder […]

Night at the Pacific

  Expecting a nighttime shot of the ocean, weren’t you?  Well you’ll have to settle for a night shot of the Pacific Mill instead.  I’ve probably said this before, but the Pacific Mill complex is my favorite mill to shoot from the outside.  There are many different buildings to shoot, with these great connecting bridges […]

Escape Routes

Apr 08, 2013 - Historic Mills Photo Workshops, Lawrence, Massachusetts, Stairs, Window - 6 Comments - Standard

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. […]

Stacked Windows

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 […]

Hello Dolly

Feb 19, 2013 - Dolly, Duck Mill, HDR, Historic Mills Photo Workshops, Lawrence, Mill, Urbex - 2 Comments - Standard

A quick post today as I deal with a broken furnace on freezing cold day.  🙂 This is an image from a mill that Bob and I recently had the opportunity to photograph thanks to one of the many wonderful mill owners in Lawrence that is supporting our photo workshop efforts.  I just love finding […]
