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

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Night at the Mills

I’m very excited about the new Nighttime/Light Painting workshop that Bob Lussier and I will be hosting this weekend at the Stone Mill in Lawrence.  We will be leading a small group of photographers through the various abandoned parts of the mill, for what should be a fantastic night of shooting and learning. While we […]

Exit the Stone

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 […]

How Much is that Chimney in the Window

When shooting subjects I’ve photographed many times, such as the Stone and Everett Mills, I’m always looking for interesting compositions that I haven’t previously used.  This particular image was more fortuitous than planned, as the reflection of the smokestack of the Stone just happened to catch my eye as I was getting in my car […]

The Office

Here is another image from our recent night shoot at the Stone Mill.  Before we even went inside, I knew that this room was the first place in the mill I was heading to try some lightpainting techniques.  Definitely a work in progress, and I’m looking forward to our next excursion there.
