Back in 2017 I had the pleasure of hosting and organizing that year’s NXNW trip — that’s the annual gathering of photography and craft beer enthusiasts I am part of. It started almost a decade ago, was derailed last year due to Covid, but is looking to be back on track this fall with a …

Today I decided to revisit the Mill. The Stone is one of the first I mills in Lawrence I photographed, it is also the first mill building built in Lawrence, and the last mill building that remains mostly un-renovated.

My hometown of Methuen, MA has a lot of history and a lot of cool architecture. That means of course, it has a lot to photograph. Unfortunately, I don’t often think to take advantage of all Methuen has to offer my camera. But I am making an effort to change that, starting today. One of …
