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.
