Hot Seat - Stone Mill, Lawrence, Massachusetts

I like to dabble in photographing abandoned buildings, including factories, homes, prisons and mills. While many of the ones I have photographed are truly abandoned, there are others that have been partially converted and renovated to usable space. This photo is from the Stone Mill that was built in 1846 and is one of the few mills of the time that was built out of stone. The mill manufactured locomotives and fire engines. Today, some of the floors are used for commercial businesses. There are still some abandoned floors like the one pictured here. We experimented with light painting with some colored lights, and I really like the chair in red backlit by the lights from an adjoining mill.
