Broken Windows Empty Hallways


no images were found

Today’s image takes us back to the Duck Mill in Lawrence — a wonderful old building anxiously awaiting a facelift.

Leaky roofs are not uncommon in these old buildings. And while the puddles of water cause headaches for the owners, those of us lucky enough to photograph under these circumstances, couldn’t be happier. The compositional opportunities are just wonderful.

The image title is a line from a song by one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Randy Newman. I don’t care who you are, or how old you are, you know at least one song written by (if not sung by) him.

This particular song, I thought appropriate:

“I Think its Going to Rain Today”

On Another Note:
I know I promised the “onOne Takes On” image for today, but It will have to wait. The Webinar is not available yet.

  1. Lovely composition, I really enjoy this. Going to have to dig back into the photos from the mills when we were out there. We should spin up another collab’n.

  2. Great shot Bob – is this the same room that Matiash posted a while back? Love the reflections and the great sense of scale.

  3. This is such a Bob shot. Really creative composition and spot on processing. Almost seems like a mysterious black liquid on the floor.

  4. Geez, Bob, the eye goes STRAIGHT to the reflection cast in the pool of water there!! As you said, a wonderful compositional opportunity for those who know how to leverage this! What an awesome shot, my friend.

  5. Fantastic composition. Love the hint of the windows in the upper part of the frame, and the reflections of those windows in the water.
