  2. I love photos of really old buildings, the ones that have seen a lot of history pass by. My area was once dominated by the logging industry. Now, past its prime, the industry left behind countless artifacts including buildings in serious disrepair. You see them everywhere as you drive the two-lane roads to the coast, barely standing. They are memories of a bygone era, rustic, handmade and built to last.

    I love the pictures you’ve posted here. Thanks for the post.

    • I wish I could have posted some of all the abandoned mills and factories along the Blackstone. Some of them look haunted. Maybe they are 🙂 I love your pictures too.

      • I mentioned to another commenter that I could have kept going just on the artifacts at Camp 18. It’s truly a special place to eat at and visit. The owners have made it a very famous tourist attraction that costs visitors nothing.

  4. Oh, these are just beautiful. My son lives out there in Hadley, and it makes me a tiny bit sad/worried to see these, but they are so lovely, the way you’ve set them up.

    • Thanks. It’s a beautiful area. My best friends live there — her husband teaches at UMass in Amherst. They’ve been hit hard this winter, but we all have. It’s been a really bad winter. It hasn’t been the MOST snow … we’ve had more. It hasn’t been the coldest. It’s been colder. But it’s been ugly, with a lot of pretty big snowstorms one right after the other, with just enough melting in between to make the ground really treacherous. Spring can’t come too soon for me.

    • Thank you. Angles. I found them 🙂 But actually, the angles were pretty easy. What was more difficult was finding the exposure. I wanted a whiteout of the snow field and I wanted it to happen in the viewfinder rather than in Photoshop. I am a dedicated user of spot metering. At least I know what I’m measuring 🙂
