I'm way behind in looking at your newer photos, Mary Alice, but at least I get to be the first to comment on this beauty! It's a wonderful shot that gives the old mill a quiet dignity. Lovely composition and colors!

Greetings, Marilyn!

Indeed, you are the very first to stop by! What a pleasure!

I have been WAY behind on stopping by everyone's sites as well. I am so far behind over here, that's it's hard to think of venturing out much until I feel like I have cleaned up my own place.

I just found this old mill yesterday on my outing with the dogs. We were enjoying our usual explorations, and happened upon this little community.

I am so happy that you think I have shown the place with dignity. Thank you very much. . . . My intentions exactly.

I am delighted to hear from you, and thank you very much for taking the time to stop by for a visit this evening.

I hope you are doing well, and maybe have settled down a little from all of your travels.

Very best regards,

Mary Alice

Settled down? A bit. Though I posted pictures of our trip, I got so far behind responding to Panoramio comments! And our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson came for a wonderful visit--the baby's first time here. That was mighty distracting! Now I'm trying to get a few things done before we return to your state about a week after Easter.

Once more: I love this photo!

Best wishes to you, Marilyn

What was I thinking? Of course you haven't settled down!

I'm so happy that you got to spend some time with your son, daughter in law, and little grandson! I know that must have been wonderful for you. A baby brings so much joy!

So you are returning once again to the mighty state of Georgia? If you hurry, you may get to enjoy some of the Cherry blossoms in bloom! They are truly delightful.

I actually took a shot of some of them today, but haven't downloaded them yet. I will soon! They're just amazing this time of year. The peach blossoms are almost out as well.

Spring, joyous Spring!

Thank you again for your kind words.

It is so nice to hear from you this evening.

Best regards,

Mary Alice

Good evening, Alan!

I got tickled reading your comment! I must tell you, these buildings aren't just sticking out everywhere around here. I do go in search of them. Most of them go completely unnoticed by most, as I don't think everyone is as drawn to the old and abandoned like I am, but that's okay!

I find myself hiding and doing a lot of sneaking as well, because half of what I photograph seems to be on private property, or has huge NO TRESPASSING signs posted here and there. How disturbing for a photographer that just wants to capture what remains of our past.

I do wish that I could wander around with no one to bother me, but it usually isn't the case! On rare instances I do seek permission, but only if I feel pretty certain that I will get a positive response. =)

It is a pleasure to have you visit my gallery, and thank you so much for your interest in my photography.

With kind regards,

Mary Alice

My dear friend,

there are lots of old or rusted or abandoned places and objects in your precious gallery. Are people leaving country towns behing for larger cities? This feed mill picture sure is very nice.. Love the colors and the composition of the image.. Nicely done!



MaryAlice on April 16, 2009

Good evening, my dearest Michel!

What a treat to have you visit unexpectedly.

How are you tonight? I hope all is well.

Indeed, this area is filled with the old and abandoned. You just have to know where to look and keep your eyes open. Many of these things go completely unnoticed, but not by me!

They are like a magnet to my eyes. =)

Thank you for your kind praise on this particular feed mill. I'm really happy that you enjoyed it's characteristics.

It is always such a pleasure to hear from you. You've made my night.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead, my friend,

Mary Alice
