Going through some old memory cards Hubs found this photo we took of an old mill almost five years ago. This was long before my foray into this photography passion I've possessed for the last couple of years. Enlarge the photo and you can see what I mean. The quality is way below my current expectations of myself but the sepia saves an otherwise just point and shoot attempt. It's the memories behind the shot that make it as beautiful as any well executed photo shoot.
This was taken on a trip with Hubs to the Smokey Mountains. It was one of the first trips there without children. We were alone for the first time in years and we had a great time. Getting ready to head home we decided to search for all the old mills we could find on our way out. We had some literature naming a few. As I recall we found about seven or eight that day. This was probably the best. We were on what could only be described as a one lane road and the mill was across the stream. I so wished it could be mine. At the moment I can't recall exactly where it was. I'm sure we were still in Tennessee and not far from the Smokies. There seemed to be some work going on that day so I feel sure it was being refurbished and is still standing today.
