This is a section of the Amerbelle Textile Mill in Rockville, CT. I’m not sure – but I think (hope) this section is closed, though the mill itself is still in operation. I like the way all these old buildings are laid out with each other – sometimes when I am driving by on my way home from work and the sun is setting it looks like a European scene to me, which is probably the draw. Most of the town is part of the National Register of Historical Places. It was affluent back in the days when the mills were active and is now full of gorgeous but abandoned buildings, mansions and old Victorian homes. I have such a heart for this little town and its potential. As I walked around today I had ideas that it would make a great place for a photography class to come and take architectural images. I also dream of meeting someone with millions of dollars who wants to invest in rebuilding a community…and sinking it into my favorite “mansion” in town…and going on from there.

    Stunning…THAT could be the North of England where I grew up…ironically the textile mills there are also mostly abandoned and dilapidated.
    I love the muted colours in this, adds to the heavy overall feel of the image.

  • I can see how this could look like the North of England…it has a very old world feel to me. I shot it in monochrome to add that feeling. Glad you like it.

    It does have a European feel to it.

  • I think that’s why I like it so much….I have a few other shots from farther back and it reminds me of streets I saw in my very quick time in Italy.
