I Shutter To Think

Uploaded: March 15, 2020


In my rural area there are many places that are 'abandoned' however, finding one you can get close to safely, is another story. About 4 miles away there is the remains of an old grist mill. The stone structure is around 200 years old & extremely fragile. Only the exterior walls remain, no water wheel, roof, rafters, floor or any other visible supports that I could see. I drove up to the house and spoke to a gentlemen in the yard. He was so nice & just said to be careful & I was! It looked like any minute the walls could come crashing down. I couldn't really figure out any artistic way to photograph it as a whole, but chose some of the details that were still hanging on. I was so impressed by the size, number of stones & the workmanship of long ago :) F10 1/80 iso 400 @22mm
