Inside the Durham Mill

This is Kodak T-Max 3200 B&W film, shot inside the Durham Mill around 9:00 a.m. or so.

Built in 1820 on the foundations of the Durham Furnace, the Durham Mill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can read more about it here: It's the crown jewel of our little community!

There aren't many such structures left in this area - most grist mills are long gone, the victims of fires or other acts of destruction. The Durham Mill is almost exactly the same as it was when it ceased operations in the late 1960s - very little structural work has been done (other than general maintenance) since about 1820. It's a well-preserved beauty, inside and out.

I'll have more images of the inside shortly.

Post-processing: Very little post-work - mostly just removing dust and scratches on the negative and some de-saturation because it was scanned in color.

Thanks as always for stopping by!



Any comment is waste.
This is perfect photo art!

Intérieur abandonné... Où conduit cet escalier de bois ?
Vers quel extérieur s'ouvre cette fenêtre aux vitres opaques par l'absence et le temps ?

Cadrage, lumière, thème, atmosphère, tout est parfait !
