Falling down mill

We passed this collapsing old grain mill. This front view makes it seem the whole thing would fall any second, but the other sides were surprisingly intact (see tomorrow's post).

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

This shot is a remarkable capture of the collapsing mill. I'll look forward to seeing the other side.

I like how you filled the frame with the building. It has sort of a dizzying effect the way it is leaning. Wonderful image!

This looks a little precarious! Look forward to seeing tomorrow's other side view!

It looks like the ladder is holding everything together :-)

@Michael Rawluk: I think will power is the only thing holding it up.

Looks to be as close to total collapse and any mill can get . . always sad to see.
