    My take on the mill visit







    personnel offices in the basement


    inside we go


    One of my first shots at light painting


    And another, little blurry, I think the tripod was unsteady




    Good explore, even if my directions almost got us lost.

    Nice one. I must admit though when I visited a few years ago I didn't find it that interesting, except for being down in the basement and looking up in the darkness at all the floors was pretty awesome(I wish I had a decent camera/skills back then) and the chimney has one bad ass crack in it!
