Ruins on Mill Street




PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: In the summer of 2013, the old dye works, abandoned for a decade, magnet for people left homeless and unemployed erupted in a ball of flame that burned for days.


Hand Made

Along the web where thumb folds into finger 
brick cadences resound as loaded piers
piling and arching against the weight of time
The meter of the module is a loom
to weave a wall of petit point perfection. 
A cold caress, to stroke it with your mind.
What ancient mason's hand? What royal tomb?

I had to do a double-take on this image, Ted, to really "get" it. And what a perfect image for a B&W.

Thanks for visiting. I have a color version as well, but decided the B&W was better.
