Wood Chips

I got a sneak peak at a mill in Lawrence that I hope to see more of soon. Two thirds of the building are either completely renovated or currently under construction.  The remaining third is … well … pretty raw. But not as raw as I expected. The floor I was treated to appeared to …

Christian Science Center

In 24mm PC-E, architecture, boston by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

This is a recent BW conversion of an image I shot back in the summer of 2010. Actually, I don’t think I published any version of it before, so technically, it is a new image here! The Christian Science Center is one of those odd places that blur the lines between public and private. The …

Malden Mills

In 24mm PC-E, industrial, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

I spent some time in the archives last night looking for old images to re-process or – as in this case – images I originally overlooked. I know why I overlooked this one. It was shot back in 2010, when I was heavily into honing my HDR skills. I rarely (if ever) considered B&W conversion. I’m …

Acadia

In 24mm PC-E, maine, panorama by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

After a weekend that was dominated by snowmagedon and shoveling, I thought I would be posting one of the shots from a brief post snowstorm photo walk I did on Saturday. Instead, I found myself longing for warmer times, so I dipped back to my 2010 Acadia National Park archives for this shot — one I …

Space

Yesterday’s Black and White shot of the Pacific Mill was so much fun, I thought I’d convert another one from that same day. This one, an interior shot from the sixth floor of the Everett Mill. I’m lucky. I know that. Before I had access to the Everett Mill, I used to venture over to …

Light and Shadows

I still have a few images from an epic day of mill shooting with Dave Wilson back in September. This is one of them. Our decision to start our day shooting outdoors at the Pacific Mill paid off in spades. For about two hours the late summer morning sun danced through the cavernous mill complex, offering …

A Present for Rita

In 24mm PC-E, architecture, Vintage by Robert Lussier2 Comments

So the classic Christmas gift question: What do you get for the woman who has everything — and everyone — she needs? Answer: Memories, of course. Or lots of scratch tickets. My good friend Fran (who happens to be Rita’s oldest son) had the former in mind when he called me early in December to …

Cape Ann Tool Company

In 24mm PC-E, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Steve Perlmutter, Mike Tully and I spent almost three hours shooting what was the Cape Ann Tool Company on Sunday. It is a sprawling facility dominated by a warehouse and/or production area comprised of mostly open space with some interesting nooks and crannies, graffiti and a stairway or two. But the prize is this power …

Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse

In 24mm PC-E, landscape, long exposure by Robert Lussier2 Comments

I did something yesterday morning that I almost never do. I got up in the middle of the night (or so it seemed) to go and shoot the sunrise. Actually, the real reason was to shoot an abandoned factory, but since we had to get up early anyway, why not go nuts. It wasn’t my …

The Foundry

In 24mm PC-E, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

This week is going to be a bit of a pot luck week. No consistent theme. A couple of images from a recent shoot, a couple from earlier in the year. Starting with this one. It is from an abandoned building in Lawrence, MA which I explored a couple of weeks ago with Steve Perlmutter. …
