Another shot from the Pacific Mill to wind up the week. This is from the big empty floor, not one of the partially built-out floors. That is my way of saying that I don’t remember if the Mill is five or six stories high. It is a massive, sprawling structure. An absolute joy to explore. …

This is the first in a series of similarly processed images of the Mills in Lawrence (B&W, square crop) — Frankly, it is an extension of the occasional B&W work I’ve been doing. I’m just trying to get more disciplined about it. I have a couple of recent images already done and I’ve been going …
