Digital Photograph...The Mill

I found this old Mill up in the foothills of North Carolina recently. It is huge. Three stories tall, and just a shell of its former self. As I was taking photographs the farmer/owner came along on his tractor carrying a large round bale of hay to feed his cattle. He stopped to chat. At first suspiciously, then for just the conversation. He must have been in his 80's and he said his folk had always had the mill. After about an hour he went along to finish his chores and I to taking photographs.
