I need  your help today as I’m very interested in what you think of this image.  I can’t put my finger on it, but for some reason I really like this image.  It just resonates with me.  There’s arguably nothing really to it other than some nice lines and textures, but it’s by far my […]

The word facade comes from the French language, literally meaning “frontage” or “face.” This is the facade of the Stone Mill in Lawrence.  As you can see, it is full of textures.  And colors.  And lines.  It also has a history.  And significance.  A past and a future.  I’m drawn to it because its “face” […]

Concrete Walls… and Something New

I posted a similar shot from here this past summer that was a vertorama of this awesome room on one of the upper floors of the Stone Mill in Lawrence.  Today’s image is a more “standard” view of the room, but one I like very much.  The simplicity of the three windows, the lines created by […]

Early Morning Urbex

This past weekend, I found some willing and able partners in Bob Lussier and Mike Tully to explore the abandoned factory of the former Cape Ann Tool Company in Rockport, Mass.  We met early in the morning to first do some sunrise shooting at Annisquam Light, and then headed over to the old factory for a little […]

I took this image over the summer during a trip to Long Island, and had pretty much left it for dead in my folder of misfit images.  That is until I started playing around with the new Perfect Effects 4 from OnOne Software.  I rarely use textures in my images, but with this shot the […]

While on Monhegan Island in Maine, one of the things I wanted to explore was this shipwreck at the southern end of the island in an area called Lobster Cove.  This was the D.T. Sheridan, a 110′ steel tug that ran aground in heavy fog in November of 1948.  As you can see, the hull […]

Sunrise Window

Just a quick post this morning.  This view was captured looking through one of the openings (windows?) in the outer wall of Fort Constitution in Portsmouth, NH.  The fort is located right next to Portsmouth Light, which was what I originally planned to shoot that morning.  As I was exploring the area, I thought the […]

I’m Not Sure Why Wednesday

Yes, it’s time for another edition of “I’m Not Sure Why Wednesday” where I share an image that I’m not really sure why I shot it, but was pleased with how it turned out.   The photo safari I participated in last weekend took place mid-morning when the sun was harsh and bright.  As a […]

I’m Hooked

May 04, 2012 - Antique, Forge, HDR, History, Hook, Massachusetts, Mill, Saugus Iron Works, Texture - 7 Comments - Standard

Happy Friday everyone.  Just a quick post for today.  In addition to all the interesting equipment and architecture at the iron works, I was also looking for some of the details to photograph as well.  The varying textures of the wood and the iron hook made this a no-brainer for me. Have a great weekend. […]
