In landscape, long exposure, maine, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier2 Comments

This week I’m taking you all back to one of my favorite places on earth. I know, it’s a bold statement. There are so many places on this planet that challenge the concept of reality. But note that I said “my favorite,” not the most incredible or the most beautiful. Although this place is beautiful. It …

Red Moon Rising

I spent Wednesday in Ogunquit, Maine assisting at a photography workshop. It was a small pilot program run my friends at Vector EDU, a company that conducts workshops for vocational school educators. Steven Perlmutter (my mill workshop partner) and I were asked to participate by working with people on landscape photography in the field. Temps …

In 50mm 1.4, industrial, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

By now, this old mill has gone quiet completely. When I was shooting there back in October, the business was in shut-down mode. The funky machines were slated for scrap (some were saved for posterity) and the big machines on the lower floor (like this one) were being dismantled. I’m pretty sure that, outside of …

Boston in Blue

In 16-35mm f3.5, architecture, boston, Cityscape, long exposure by Robert Lussier4 Comments

This is the first shot I grabbed during last Tuesday’s gathering of photo bloggers at Boston’s Fan Pier. Contrary to appearances, this was shot pre-blue hour. The decidedly blue tone of the image is not a result of the disappearing sun, nor is it a result of software trickery. It is the result of an …

Wrightsville

In 20mm f2.8, landscape by Robert Lussier9 Comments

You don’t find many of these long fishing piers at the New England beaches I’m familiar with. Actually, in the beahes I’m very familiar with, you don’t find ANY of these piers. So when I was shooting at Kure and Wrightsville Beaches in North Carolina a couple of weeks ago, I naturally gravitated towards the …

Confined

In 20mm f2.8, lawrence, urbex by Robert Lussier4 Comments

For the first time in over 5 days the sun is shining again here in the Boston area. All week we were trapped by a constant cover of clouds and intermittent rain, spattered with the occasional downpour. Its not a complaint about the weather, especially given some of the flooding we’ve had over the years …

Chubby’s

In diners by Robert Lussier5 Comments

I really love diners. There is nothing like eating a greasy big breakfast in a classic Worcester Dining Car restaurant. I also like photographing old abandoned buildings. The other day, those two worlds collided. This little piece of Americana is located in Salisbury, Massachusetts, a couple of miles from the beach, near the highway on …

The Blue Hour

In hdr, landscape by Robert Lussier4 Comments

This is another shot from Acadia National Park, taken during last summer’s camping trip. After a full day of hiking, my son Ryan and I decided to hit the Park loop road at dusk for some photography. The waves were incredibly high. A hurricane passing 200 miles northeast of Acadia produced dangerous surf conditions along …

Merrimack River Blue

In lawrence, mills by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Every once in a while an image happens by accident or afterthought. This is one such case. Last spring I took advantage of my access to the mills to catch the sunset from the roof of the Wood Mill Store House. Most of that day was overcast with no indication of a “killer sunset”, but …
