The photography group that I attend every month has been a little hard up for project suggestions. Last month one participant showed up with a deck of cards, each card featuring a “creativity exercise.” So one of my friends shuffled the cards, I cut the cards, he shuffled some more and drew. We didn’t like that cockamamie idea, so there was another shuffle, cut, shuffle and draw. The challenge this time was to go somewhere we have never been before (or at least not for a while), take a picture, walk 26 steps and take another picture. Walk another 26 steps and take another picture. Rinse and repeat for 10 pictures. No cheating! Well, not too much cheating. I visited Burlington’s Chase Mill, a one-time woolen operation that now houses offices and small businesses. A light snow was falling as I emerged from the car. Aiming across the Winooski River, this is my first picture, of the woolen mill on the Winooski side of the river, constructed in 1912. It ceased operation as a mill in 1954 and now houses offices and small businesses. Perhaps you detect a pattern here.
