Smokestacks through the window

This was one of those times when you spot something while just walking around.  I was exploring the Lindale Mill building where they would dye the denim material which was the main product of the mill.  It was a sunny day and, like most of us in the group, I was paying attention to the light coming in through the windows.

When going past this one un-glazed window, I noticed the great view of the main plant with its iconic smokestacks.  The open window with the brick wall painted in the distinctive green color that is though out the mill, made a perfect frame for my image.  I used my wide-angle lens to get the whole of the window and include that great green brick.  I think the finished image looks like a picture of the mill hanging on the wall.  One of those – picture within a picture, kind of things.

Sometimes we plan a great shot and sometimes it kind of just gets presented to you.  The key seems to be keeping your eyes open and being ready when the opportunity arises.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.

      1. Definitely worth it! I recently visited a beautiful place – Fonthill Castle – and it did NOT allow photography on the tours. I could purchase a permit – in the regions of $100! I thought that outrageous. Your deal is great 🙂
