Isn't it amazing how something so old can make the best pictures? Love the black and white, makes it look even older looking.
Places like that always tug on my heart a little. I wonder about the lives that once were lived there.
Nice B&W pics, I like old barns for pics.In your previous post, that looks like a sundog, there would have been one both sides of the sun and one over the sun, I havnt seen them often.
I love the setting in these photos, and i really like the B&W seems to give the photo the old heritage that it needs
The top one for me - so simple, but tells a whole story!
If you stop to think about it, that windmill was state of the art in technology (so to speak) when it was built. It pumped the water and filled the tank and gravity pushed it out of pipes when needed. I am guessing there might be a trough somewhere near there too. ANyway, nice photographs.
What a neat find! Love the progression of photos in discovering MORE. . .
i remember sseing this & I have wondered about it for years. I wonder what the rest of the story is? ....Mama I woke up this morning & my white fitted sheet had ripped sometime in the night!! I love those sheets!! love u
Are there lots of windmills down there...we don't have them in Arkansas.
Always loved windmills; even thought of buying an old one, but never did... old dreams, like landing in Antarctida... ;))Wish you a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2008!Blogtrotter
I have a thing about windmills, they are so lonely and romantic looking, and old toothless ones even more so. This is great, I love the way you did the black and white on the first one, with blue corners!
I love it! What a neat old windmill! What is it about the allure of "old things"? Maybe, just maybe, it makes me think how all things, including this aging body will be made new one day because of Jesus...
Love this photos and that they are done in Black & White!! :)
A beautiful post Dot.. I love the house and B & W suits this so much.

I love shots like this....but they do seem a little sad...that someone couldn't keep the place "up".
Old stuff and in B/W oh I like old and B/W and these work too.Fantastic.come and see Buckfast Abbey and the Water Wheel Mill.
Awesome... I'm really liking this a lot! I wouldn't find anything like this in my neck of the woods!Rocky Mountain Retreat
The house seems diminutive alongside the windmill and water tower! This image speaks to the power and place of the elements in our lives.
Great photos!Happy New Year!Sandra Evertson
Oh, I would love to hear the stories it could tell!Kelli
Hello Dot,I like these pictures, they remined me of 'the wizard of Oz' somehow. How can I join skywatch?
