Wassaic, New York.

I have three friends who run a timber frame business just over the state line in New York. I’ve taken pictures in their shop over many years; it’s the type of shop that has so much stuff lying around, all sorts of machines, tools, wood pieces, and frankly, crap, that it’s mind blowing.

This day they were working on a large project that will get shipped out of state. They were finishing timber frame pieces and loading them into large boxes they built that will then get stacked in a large shipping container and trucked to the job. It’s a fascinating logistical process.

My problem is, they’re my friends so I end up talking with them a lot and not snooping around looking for interesting images.

These images are place markers to remind me to get back there to do some more serious shooting.
