Wannalancit Spiral II

Jan 13, 2014 - Lowell, Stairs, Wannalancit Mill, Wood - 3 Comments - Standard

Here is one more image from the beautiful stairways at the Wannalancit Mill in Lowell, MA.  The other images I posted from here were tighter shots of the central part of the spiral stairs, but for this one I took a somewhat wider view. But regardless of the angle or composition, these stairs are a […]

Under the Stairs

Dec 03, 2013 - Lowell, Mill, Stairs, Wannalancit Mill, Wood - 8 Comments - Standard

Happy Monday, and I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday.  In addition to a few days off from work, I also took a few days off from the blog, and the break was just what I needed. Today we’re going back to the beautiful stairs at the Wannalancit Mill in Lowell, MA.  Although looking […]

Red, White and Blue

While shooting the Duck Mill in Lawrence last weekend, I found myself breaking away from the more traditional views and seeking out opportunities for more detail shots of the various spaces.  I still grabbed plenty of wide angle shots of this expansive mill space with its large windows and endless columns, but for some reason I kept […]

It’s been a while since I posted something that didn’t revolve around the coast or water, so today I’m posting a shot from a trip to the Stone Mill in Lawrence a while back with good friend Bob Lussier.   There are so many things to see and photograph here, and yet sometimes I overlook the obvious […]

Jetty Simplicity

It’s been a while since I posted a long exposure image, and I’m really pleased with how this one turned out.  This is one of the wooden jetties that protects the entrance to Three Mile Harbor in Easthampton, NY.  To get to this location on the western side of the channel you need to have […]

Fuel for the Fire

It amazes me that virtually every piece of equipment at the iron works was made of wood, including this wheelbarrow (minus the outer edge of the wheel).  There were several of them lined up, and filled with what appears to be charcoal to be used in the forge.  I just love the old-world craftsmanship of […]

May the Forge Be With You

Sorry for the corny title, but it was just too easy.  This is the Forge at Saugus Iron Works, where iron was transformed so that it could be sold to merchants and blacksmiths.  My previous two posts from here have highlighted things inside these buildings, so today I thought I’d show what some of them […]

Wooden Wheels

Continuing with images from the Saugus Iron Works, today’s post highlights some of the enormous wooden machinery that was used in the production of iron during the seventeenth century.  It was difficult to discern exactly what these wheels were used for, but they were powered by a large waterwheel on the outside of the building […]
