Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Thomas Kay Woolen Mill Tour

Here is my entry for WordPress Daily Post Weekly Challenge with the topic of Tour Guide.

Here are some photos from historic Thomas Kay Woolen Mill in Salem, Oregon.  Chris and I looked the guided tour many years ago on a sunny winter day.  There were only about 10 over head lightbulbs in the entire factory.  Windows and daylight lit most of the areas.

  1. Most of our mills are something else inside, if they are still standing. Many of the wooden ones have burned down, most recently Bernat Mills in Uxbridge which burned for nearly a month before it finally ended. They look so attractive now, with all the light … but I don’t think they were all that nice for the people who worked there.


  2. Nice tour, Cee. The machines and textiles are certainly fertile ground for photography.


    • I’d love to go back with my camera now, since I know how to use it. I was brand new to fancy photography and they wouldn’t let us use a flash. Now I never use flash.

      • It looks like there is an abundant supply of available light at the mill. I’d love to see what you do with it when you return.


        • That was a wonderful sunny day, so lighting was real good. Although most of the time we are gray skies and dark. I also think that when they were running full stream ahead they were a 24/7 operation and only with a few old light bulbs.

Award Free Blog

I appreciate you thinking of me for an award. I have had a lot of fun with awards in the past. I think awards are a fantastic tool to help out people who are just starting their blogging adventure. I've been here awhile now.

My best award is that you somehow still come to visit me when ever you get a chance. It's a thrill and joy to share my photography and life with all of you. Thanks.
