Wow. That place would make one heck of a photo studio, or even a portrait venue. Great light.
Except for the hundreds of holes in the floor! I love buildings like that but the old Clyde mill gave me the willies. I was glad to get out in one piece. Seriously scary, five stories of treacherous footing and cracked floors. And, as you noticed, heaven's own light.
Awesome. Glad you were able to get in there.
Very cool. Hope you didn't get too close to the buffalo!
I can tell this place gave you the willies! I agree with Le Grand Lapin. What makes this place great is the light ... and the view. Come back when the sun is shining and the trees have leafed out. Hey, thanks for the photos, Tom.
Mari -- I couldn't have picked a better day to shoot the old mill--overcast and rain. Sun would have made the light much more harsh. However, looking from the fifth floor windows revealed a dismal landscape caught between a cold brutal winter and a warm green spring, which translates as a mucky, gray, sodden terrain where everything looks depressed and dejected. Next time I'll invite you along in case one of us falls through a hole.
Looks like the kind of place OSHA would have a field day in.
