I won’t pretend that I know what the company makes – or made. But it has something to do with fine wire combs used in the fabric industry. The wire bristles are somehow embedded in the thick canvas fabric, like the coil in this shot. Or something like that.   Related Images:


In 16-35mm f3.5, urbex, Vintage by Robert Lussier3 Comments

This week I’ll be bringing you a few images from a mill in my area that will remain nameless. At least for now. I was invited in to shoot it by the family who owns it, but was asked to keep the location out of my blog. So I apologize for the lack of details …

Pacific Pipes

A quick post for today. Another shot from my Pacific Mill shoot with Dave Wilson this past Saturday. On this shoot, I broke out my 24mm PC-E (Tilt Shift) lens for the first time in a long time. After 5 minutes, I started to wonder why I let it gather dust for so long. Shifting …

More crusty BW goodness from down south for y’all. (That’s right. I said y’all.) This is the second in the Wilmington, North Carolina, Cape Fear River Port Area, Rusted out Tank series. Long name for a short series. Related Images:

The architecture of these 19th century mills have a lot in common. With the exception of the Stone Mill, they are all made primarily of bricks and wooden beams. They were built primarily for function, not form. The tall windows and vast open floor space were designed to maximize natural lighting and accommodate the huge …
