In lawrence, Uncategorized, urbex by Robert Lussier3 Comments

[singlepic id=2356 width=800 float=center] If I could present one image as the reason I shoot the mills in Lawrence, this would be it. Well, in all honesty, I could  probably come up with a few images that define my photographic obsession, but this would be on the top of the image stack. It is a …

[singlepic id=2348 w=840 float=center] I haven’t posted an image in a couple of days, but that is not from lack of desire. Since Monday night I have been dealing with some Adobe Lightroom issues. My catalog failed to load and couldn’t be repaired so I was forced to open a backup version. That would be …

Gigante Meat Market

In lawrence, Olympus OM-D, urbex, Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Something different for today. I have always been fascinated with the storefronts in the city of Lawrence, but rarely make the effort to photograph them. I did so a couple of months back and got this shot, which has been sitting unprocessed on my machine since then. Thought it was about time to give it …

The Kitchen Sink

In Olympus OM-D, Travel, urbex, Utah, Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 by Robert Lussier4 Comments

[singlepic id=2253 w=750 float=center] I still cannot get over how much fun the Spring Photo Blogger Meetup at Moab was. Seven Bloggers got together for 72 hours of almost non-stop photography, functioning on very little sleep and all living to tell about it. Epic. One of the first stops on the journey to Moab was …

This Way

[singlepic id=2247 w=650 float=center] Here is another image from my recent visit to Belchertown State School. Next to Monday’s image it might be my favorite. Urbex locations like this work better for me when you can convey an air of mysterious creepiness. Or is it “creepy mysteriousness”? Anyway, revisiting Belchertown was a treat. It had …

The Chair

[singlepic id=2244 w=750 float=center] I took last Friday off to go and visit my son out in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It is about a three hour drive from where we live. Not a terribly long drive, but long enough to warrant a break – a few minutes from driving to stretch the legs. It just so …

In maine, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

[singlepic id=2236 w=650 h=650 float=center] A couple of years ago I was in Portland, Maine on business. I had a couple of hours to kill, so I hit the waterfront district with my camera. The run down fishing docks were especially fun to shoot. The top image is the consumer side of a row of fishing …

Light Painting at the Stone Mill

In 14mm f2.8, long exposure, urbex by Robert Lussier4 Comments

[singlepic id=2231 w=750 float=center] Steven Perlmutter, Mike Tully and I tried a bold experiment last week. We went to the Stone Mill for some light painting and night photography.  None of us had ever attempted shooting in the dark in the Stone so we didn’t know what to expect. After checking in with my security …

Wood Chips

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

[singlepic id=2224 w=750 float=center] 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 …

Manhattan Homestead

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

[singlepic id=2220 w=750 float=center] While exploring the semi-ghost town of Manhattan, NV in the spring of 2012 I got a bit disoriented. I made a wrong turn and found myself driving towards what appeared someone’s home. A trailer home. I really didn’t want to trespass so I started looking for a place to turn around. …
