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 […]

Ayer Mill Clock Tower

Apr 07, 2015 - Ayer Mill, B&W, Clouds, Lawrence, Long Exposure - 3 Comments - Standard

This past Saturday was an incredibly windy day with plenty of clouds in the sky – a perfect recipe for some long exposures.  Unfortunately, by the time I was able to get out with my camera in the afternoon, much of the cloud cover had moved out.  There were thankfully still enough, however, to provide some nice movement in the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Light Grids II

Mar 10, 2014 - B&W, Lawrence, Mill, Stone Mill, Sunrise - 1 Comments - Standard

I thought I’d start the week with another image of the beautiful light that streams into the Stone Mill in the early morning.  You can even see some of the light patterns on the ceiling, which I believe is from the sun reflecting off a car windshield or something in the parking lot below.  A […]

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 […]

Light Grids

It’s been a while since I posted an image from the Stone Mill in Lawrence, so here’s one today.  This side of the building really benefits from the morning light that pours in through it’s massive windows.  The patterns created on the floor are beautiful, and really change depending on the season.  Winter is certainly […]
