Here is another view of the century+ old hand cart in the attic of the century+ old Stone Mill in Lawrence, MA. It is probably the most photographed artifact in the building. Added bonus, the really cool skylight windows.

Photographing sunrise is something I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with; I LOVE capturing an epic, colorful sunrise, but I HATE the fact that sunrise happens so damned early in the day!

Lawrence, Massachusetts has been at the forefront of my photography for about a dozen years. The city’s old mills and smokestacks that line the Merrimack River and the bridges that traverse it make wonderful subjects. They help connect me to the region’s history.

Back in 2017, for some strange reason, I took on the self-inflicted pain of photographing and posting a new, blog worthy, image for each day of the calendar year. I was enthusiastically immersed in the project for the entire year… er… a couple of months… weeks… um… maybe days(?) before I was overwhelmed with the …
