Malden Mills


Combing through my catalog this morning, I stumbled across this shot, taken from the top of the Water Tower this past summer. It is a shot overlooking the Malden Mills (originally Arlington Mill) in Lawrence. I’m not posting it simply because I love it. I’m posting it as a memorial, of sorts.

I have shot in Malden Mill’s yard a lot over the past couple of years, and inside a couple of the buildings. It was one of my favorite places to shoot.

I drove past it last week to find it is now ringed with temporary fence, indicating that construction is under way. I believe the complex is being converted to apartments.

It’s a little sad knowing I won’t be able to shoot there any more. But progress is good. I’m glad I got what I got out of Malden Mills.

  1. It is sad to see places like this go but that’s how the world works. Very nice capture Bob, the slight TS effect really draws you to the buildings.

  2. Nice work with the TS! I’m glad you were able to spend time in there over the past, but also glad to hear construction is moving. More jobs!

  3. Very nice. I have no idea what tilt shift is. This photograph is just great. It seems so much like a pic of a layout you’d see on someone’s train table top. I expect my brother’s old small toy train to go chugging past. Again, very nice.
