buildings in the evening sun @porterdale (nikon d70)

A few months after my morning sojourn to Porterdale, I drove out in the evening. I wanted some photographs of the old mill I alluded to in a previous post before it was completely renovated. This was a waste of time, as there was limited sunlight on the mill. Unfortunately, the buildings across the street from the mill were tall enough to put it in shadow.

Shortly after discovering the mill was in shade, I snapped a picture of an old fashioned electrical insulator. While looking for other opportunities, I did manage one photograph of the under renovation mill building.

After driving all the way to Porterdale for a whopping two pictures, I got lost in the wilds of Newton County on my way back home. After some aimless driving in the dark, I eventually found I-20 and took it back to civilization.

All photographs were taken with a Nikon D70. The insulator was shot with a Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 and a circular polarizer. The photograph of the mill was taken with a Silent Wave Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 constant aperture zoom.
