Swingin’ Art

My wife and I went on a little road trip to Vernonia, Oregon, this past weekend. My goal was to photograph an abandoned mill once owned by the Oregon-American Lumber Company. This mill was built in 1924 and closed by 1957 after all of the old growth stands had been logged. All that was left of the mill was a roofless fuel bunker containing some trees, a lot of interesting graffiti, and a few concrete platforms that, I assume, were used for staging machinery. A gold mine for any photographer! Over the next few days I will be posting some of the images I took while I was there. It was my first time shooting this building and after browsing through my collection of photographs I’m already thinking of different and more creative ways of capturing the inside. I will definitely be taking another trip.

For this image I was actually standing outside while shooting through a small opening at the other end of the building. The goal was to give the impression the swing was hanging from the tree limb.
