Another day out with my baby

I went out with my dad and our cameras. I dont think he was too inspired, but I just have to give him credit for comming along and showing me his 'secret' truck/old building spot! We also stopped in at Providence Farms. There was something going on there maybe even something formal so we didnt nose around too too much. The yard that you go past as you are driving up to the stables always catches my eye and invokes many idealistic day dreams. The lighting was dreamy with its golden cast, pretty much anything looked more special.
I loved the way the sunlight and low shadows played off of this, otherwise, mundane fence. Even though it was very cold out, the way the light and shadows play off of the rail fence, reminds me of long drawn out summer evenings. The shadows creeping further up the yard give a hint of the relief that the sun setting brings from the pelting heat of summer. Although, it was far from warm out this day!
Out in Glenora, there is an old mill. We cant quite figure out if its abandoned or not. The saws dont look rusty and there is some fresh wood at one end. Regardless, it shows a lot of weathering and hints of a busier, more productive time for this mill. It reminded me of the mill that Pa worked at on the show, The Walton's.

I imagine that Johnboy would have helped his father out at the mill sitting behind the steering wheel of a truck like this one. You can be sure that any person needing a lift along the old dirt roads would have been welcomed next to the driver.

Amazing how much history can be stored in a chunk of old rusted metal. It almost looks sad as it sits there almost completely forgotten.
