As Bob Lussier and I get ready for our upcoming mill workshops, we did a little scouting trip this weekend along with Mike Tully to the Everett Mill in Lawrence. This place is massive, and full of incredible spaces to photograph. For this particular image I was inspired by all of the great images Bob has made of mill stairways over the years. And one thing the Everett Mill doesn’t lack is cool stairways.
When I got home and started to process this shot, I immediately saw the opening in the wall as a cyclop’s eye with the railing as a mouth below. Do you see it, or am I starting to imagine things? Well… at least the lines and textures are pretty nice too.
