The mill buildings in Lawrence are really enormous. They stretch for a mile or more along the river and each building, as you’re probably seen from some of the interior shots, covers many acres.
Capturing that scale can be an interesting challenge. In previous posts, I’ve shown you one approach using a telephoto lens to compress the perspective but another method I enjoy is to use an ultra-wide-angle lens (or, in this case, a fisheye) and a low point of view to exaggerate the perspective and distort the verticals, giving a very dramatic composition like this one.
This image was taken in a narrow alley or lane between two buildings in the Pacific Mill complex. Bob and I parked near here and reckoned that the location would be worth spending 30 minutes or so at despite the fact that the sun was high in the sky and rather harsh. We left about 2 and a half hours later!
