Don’t be afraid. Its not that scary. Its just a door in the Stone Mill that I had never shot before.

Its a pretty straightforward shot in approach and processing. Another in my effort to capture the details and textures of this great old building.

As usual, I shot it wide. By coincidence, Jacob Lucas also grabbed a shot of the door that day, taking a different, longer lens approach. Be sure to check it out for his perspective on it.

In all the times I’ve shot in this building, I never thought to go long. I should publicly thank Jacob for giving me (or letting me steal) the idea. Sometimes it takes seeing a familiar place through someone else’s eyes to open your own.

Random Rock Lyric:
So I completely to include the weekly Random Rock Lyric in yesterday’s post, so here it is:

Well, I drunk a lot of wine and I’m feeling fine
Gonna race some cat to bed
Is this concrete all around,
or is it in my head?

Its not cheating to look it up on the Web when you are stumped. Its only cheating to post it in comments if you did so.

  1. There are some great shadows and textures on these doors, nice shot. The link to Jacob Lucas is showing me a ‘post not found’ page, however.

  2. This is great Bob! I can feel the stories this door has embedded in it from the years of use. I love the details, and the textures are utterly compelling! Fan-flippin-tastic image!
