9 11 Moseley Mill

Mumbai - got many of you on this one as well! Gotta start using Google!! Correctly answered - Mike, Tony, Elaine, Peyton, and Joani.

"Moseley Mill"

Seems as if I have been spending a lot of times in mills or factories of late. Stony Brook Camera Club meets in a former mill and we were afforded the opportunity to shoot the nooks and crannies. I lucked out as only one other member showed up on the day I picked to photograph it.

We had ample time and freedom of movement for the two hours we were there.

A vast majority of the former Moseley Mill has been repurposed into offices, a salon, and even a church. There were areas where the hands of progress had not as yet reached. This was one of those places.

The sprocket thread was retired to a backroom after many decades of productivity.

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? After Ho Chi Minh City and Mumbai, I thought you deserved a gimme. . .

the New York Times, in its list of ‘44 places to visit in 2009’ ranked this city at the Number 4 spot!

largest city and capital of its country and the second largest city in the European Union,

defining clue: the most distinct aspect here is its architecture, with the Brandenburg Gate being its iconic feature – its construction was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia, and was completed in the year 1791.

another architectural marvel is the Reichstag Building – its roof is made entirely of glass!

this city boasts of having the most diverse and scintillating nightlife in all of Europe. You visit the countless pubs and discotheques in the city.

also famous for its zoo which was established in 1844.
