The Blacksmith’s Ladder
Since I started shooting the mills of Lawrence, my favorite shots have been the ones that defy time. This is one of them. It was taken at the blacksmith shop at Lawrence History Center.
The History Center was kind enough to open the period shop for the Essex National Heritage Area Trails and Sails Photo Walk that I hosted with Steven Perlmutter this past Saturday and we took full advantage of the opportunity.
This is one of my favorite shots. These bins of bolts spikes line about half the wall from floor to ceiling next to the window to the former Essex Company compound yard. I loved the way the window light softly illuminated the ladder.
Really, really stunning piece here, Bob, I too love the light playing off the ladder and all the mystery that’s held in those shadows there!! GREAT work my friend!
