The Rafters

no images were found

It is no secret that the Stone Mill in Lawrence, Massachusetts is one of my favorite local places to shoot. I enjoy a good relationship with the management and security staff there, so I enjoy access (usually) when I want it. It is not abandoned. It houses about a dozen businesses ranging from retail to commercial photography (Have to talk to my friend, John about his site).

As the first mill/machine shop in Lawrence (birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in America), the Stone is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  So basically, it exists in a state of historic preservation. The toughest part to renovate and commercialize without compromising its historic charm is the attic. So, it remains empty and a great shooting destination for me.

This shot is one I’ve had in mind for a while, but never quite got right —  wide view of the attic that emphasizes the structure of the rafters. I grabbed this one on my recent visit there with my friend, Steve Perlmutter.
