Wood Chips

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

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 treated to appeared to …

The Breakout

In 16-35mm f3.5, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Back in December I went on a shoot with Steve Perlmutter and Mike Tully to Cape Ann, here in Massachusetts. Our first stop was Annisquam Lighthouse in Rockport for a dawn shoot. Our second stop, and the main reason for the excursion, was the abandoned Cape Ann Tool Company in Rockport, Massachusetts. We killed about three hours …

Pemberton View

In 14mm f2.8, architecture, lawrence, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

I warned told you yesterday that I converted almost everything I shot at the Duck Mill to B&W, so here is the second shot from the series. The Duck Mill stands next to the Pemberton Mill in Lawrence, MA. The Duck’s history pales to that of the Pemberton Mill, seen out the window. The Pemberton mill …

The Ascent

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

This is from a building in Lawrence that I originally shot with Brian Matiash back in 2010. Or 2011. Can’t remember. Anyway, it was a productive day shooting a great location for both of us. That day, I grabbed a shot of this stairway from about the same angle. Looking at it on my camera’s LCD …

Cape Ann Tool Company

In 24mm PC-E, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Steve Perlmutter, Mike Tully and I spent almost three hours shooting what was the Cape Ann Tool Company on Sunday. It is a sprawling facility dominated by a warehouse and/or production area comprised of mostly open space with some interesting nooks and crannies, graffiti and a stairway or two. But the prize is this power …


In 50mm 1.4, industrial, urbex, Vintage by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

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:

Pacific Spiral

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

Something a little different from me today. A mill image with a texture overlay. Originally, I wasn’t sure how I would use the texture when I shot it at the Everett Mill. But after processing the spiral image from the Pacific Mill, shot earlier the same day, I thought it needed a kick. A textile …

Ione’s Green House

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier7 Comments

This is probably my last post for a while so I wanted to go out strong. Here are a couple of images from the Green House (for lack of a better name) in Ione. It was another fascinating tour around and through one of Ione’s many ghost houses. A house that is very weak and …
