Digital Photograph...The Old Mill


This is an old textile mill up in the mountains of North Carolina. I turned this into a black and white photograph, then into a stamp in Photo Shop. Added a few more layers to give it some depth. I hope you will enlarge this to get the full effect. Another ghost...

Just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the photos you post. They are just gorgeous. My roommate in college was a photo major - brings back the memories! Your structures are superb...you certainly have an eye for detail and beauty! The farm pics are my favorites, od course! LOL

Looking at the large version definitely brings out the wonderful subtle textures. Thanks for the heads up to do that.
