We were traversing a Virginia section of the Blue Ridge Parkway, when we came across the Mabry Mill.

I took the opportunity to trigger off a roll of Black & White Agfa with my Canon T90 35-105 lens, all 36 are very satisfying.

A group of old car enthusiasts rolled in to the car park, this is two samples, I had to shoot from the rear, as too many modern cars, would have been in the frame from the front. If your car was there and you would like a copy email me.

An interesting fact about the Mabry Mill, is that, several States, claim it as being in their State, a very popular Postcard.
