Wood Mill Red

no images were found

The Wood Mill in Lawrence is about a quarter of a mile long and 110 feet high. Its a very big building. It was once part of the largest mill complex in the world. Today, it is mostly empty and slated for renovation.

This shot was taken a couple of years ago on a morning when I remembered to bring my tripod, but somehow forgot the mounting plate. It was not a fruitful morning, but with the aid of my filter case, I was able to get this low angle. I also may have posted it before, but this is a newly processed version.

I toyed with the idea of straightening and/or cropping the image, but I decided I liked the angle.

On Another Note:
I’m in the process of preparing a series of my mill images for an upcoming exhibit at the Lawrence History Center.  It will be the first of what I hope will be several events over the next year, as we approach the 100th anniversary of the Lawrence Bread and Roses Strike, also known as the Lawrence Textile Strike.

More details in the coming days.
