Window Series #5

This series of 21 window shots comes from an old paper mill where I had the opportunity to participate in photographically documenting the site. The site was home to E.B. Eddy from the end of the 19th century to late in the 20th century. It was taken over by Domtar at that time who actively operated it until 10 or 12 years ago. It has now been acquired by a developer who will tear some of the old buildings down and replace them with condos and a more people oriented modern living site. The site crosses the Ottawa River on the provincial border between Ontario and Quebec. Ottawa is on the Ontario side and Gatineau is on the Quebec side.

 

I took quite a few window shots because they were few and far between. Many buildings had no windows, or the windows were covered over or too dirty to see through. After spending many cold dismal winters days at the site last winter, (sometimes in very dark areas), I was overjoyed to see the spring sun shining through in some spots.
