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 hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, or Hanukkah (or whatever you celebrate) and are geared up for a fantastic New Year. I look forward to this post every year.

These are the back stairs at Boston’s Trinity Church. It has been sitting in the archives for well over a year. I had been shooting the interior with the fisheye and when I came upon the stairs, I saw nu reason to switch to another lens. I was dying to remove the red velvet covered …

I went to visit an old friend yesterday morning. About a year ago, I spent a few mornings photographing the Pacific Mill Machine Shop. It’s a small pipe threading shop in the mill that hasn’t been operational in about half a century. Not much has changed in the shop since operations ceased. Its been used …

The Landing

In interior, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Another trip to the abandoned school yielded a new old building for Brian, Pat and me to explore. At first glance it didn’t hold much promise. Like all of the buildings on the campus, the windows were all boarded up and the doors appeared to be welded shut. On top of that, this building was …

Future Urbex
