North Canal Gate House

In architecture, industrial, lawrence by Robert Lussier2 Comments

From the title, you know this is the North Canal Gate House in Lawrence. It is maintained in original condition by the Enel Corporation, the company that runs the dam and sells the electricity it generates through its much more modern facility located on the south end of the dam. I was given an hour …

Mill City

I wasn’t sure what to call this image. It was shot from the Pacific Mill yard — one of my favorite places in Lawrence to shoot. I grabbed this shot (believe it or not) around noon during one the Historic Mills Photo Walks that I host with my friend, Steven Perlmutter. I used my 10 …

Pacific Lobby

In architecture, lawrence, Olympus OM-D, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Thought I’d get all radical and post a color image! This is from the Pacific Mill, in case you couldn’t tell from the title. This particular building in the complex is empty, but the other buildings in the complex are still occupied — mostly. I really loved the way this door was tucked away under …

Christian Science Center

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

I happened to be poking through old Lightroom directories this past weekend when I stumbled upon images from a 2010 shoot at the Christian Science Center in Boston. I was there with my friend and frequent shooting partner, Brian Matiash (who has since moved!). We were meeting up with Dave Wilson who was in town …

Waterfront Reflections

In architecture, boston, Olympus OM-D by Robert Lussier3 Comments

I was in Boston last Saturday shooting a commercial job for a construction company. It was a nasty, rainy, windy day. But I was shooting indoors. Still, I decided to take advantage of the fact that I was in town and decided to do some recreational shooting after the job was done. Here is one …

The Stairwell

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, architecture, mills by Robert Lussier2 Comments

I’ll round out the week with another shot from the Wannalancit Mill in Lowell, Massachusetts. The moment I stepped into the stairwell I knew I wanted to start shooting with my fisheye lens. But I didn’t have this shot in mind at the time. I was thinking more of a classic wide spiral (which I …

Conveyor

Yesterday was refreshing. At least two hours of it were. For a couple of hours Steven Perlmutter and I were able to shoot the interior of the Pacific Mill in Lawrence. I’ve had the opportunity to shoot parts of the Pacific before, but there is some urgency to shoot it more comprehensively. While the main building …

Tower of London

In architecture, England, London, Travel by Robert Lussier1 Comment

I never get tired of going back through old images. And I never get tired of black and white processing. So here is an old image I just processed in black and white. It is from last year’s trip to England with my wife, Jean and my youngest son, Ryan. To recap, Jean was there …

New York by Gehry

In 80-200mm f2.8, architecture, Cityscape by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Here is a shot of the tallest residential towers in the Americas — New York by Gehry. The towers were designed by Frank Gehry, probably the most acclaimed architect of our time. The building is located at 8 Spruce, not far from Ground Zero and the nearly finished Freedom Tower. It is a dominant element in …

St Paul’s Cathedral

In architecture, Cityscape, London, Travel by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Well my weekend was a complete bust. Or it wasn’t, depending on how you look at it. I basically spent it either in front of my computer trying to recover a friend’s website that was infiltrated (on Saturday) or in front of the TV watching sports (on Sunday). Then there was the 3+ hours I …
