I took advantage of this very close to home location that I like to use to try new (for me) photography things. I've been messing with shooting directly into the sun in hopes to capture the warm glow of the sun as well as the golden rays and shadows that are emitted onto the subject.

Here we have (yet again), White's Factory (1831) in Acushnet. I love this spot for its close proximity to where I live as well as the textile history.

Some history on White's Factory:

"A mill dam was first built on this site in 1746. About 1799, William White, Sr. built a stone water-powered cotton mill for himself and three of his sons, Phineas, William and Benjamin. That mill, one of the earliest in the country, burned down around 1830. It was rebuilt in 1831, burned again around 1854, and finally converted to a sawmill whose last operator was James B. Hamlin. The White family still owns the property."
