The structures on the Glendale site are great examples of sturdy, old mill architecture, unfortunately, a good deal of the mill has been demolished. Some of the structures are recognizable as to function but others are just there, though I am sure the folks that live there know what the structures are for. For my own thinking the two squat columns represent Gelendalehenge.
Yesterday I went with my friend Sam to Glendale Mill which is just outside of Spartanburg, SC in the town of Glendale. It is an abandoned mill site which is now Wofford College’s Environmental Center. The remaining old buildings and the stream with surrounding woods is magical. There will be a few more installments.
Ice cubes in faceted glasses, again. There is a constant fascination with the colors and shapes of ice in glasses and the various ways they can be seen and interpreted.
The Pickens County Museum has lots of nooks and crannies but the upstairs barred window and its shadows are most interesting to me.
A stroll down Hendersonville’s main street gave me a chance to check out some of the shops and the shop selling musical instruments was particularly interesting for me with its drum sets, guitars of all sorts and other items for music making. Check out your own home town for photographic opportunities and share your results.
Hendersonville is a tough place to leave so here are some more px.
We jaunted off to Hendersonville for a bit of sunny afternoon shooting. I am beginning to appreciated Hendersonville’s aura and will revisit it many times.
Al and I went to the Carl Sandburg House and caught the last of the fall colors which waning were intense.
Alice always takes me to events with people and things to photograph including Walter Turpening, a great weaver/furniture-maker. The vendor on the phone was priceless, everyone is hooked up, maybe and the items that first caught my eye are things I want to share first, meaning there is more to come.
Today I decided to get off my duff and go out into the yard where the wetness, fog and leaves all made for an intense color and shape experience. Foggy or cloudy, dreary days make for bright, intense colors almost as if it had a built-in polarizing filter with an additional bit of saturation. You might enjoy grabbing your camera, putting on your Wellies and go shooting.
