“Millstone & Hammer” Black Creek Pioneer Village

Millstone and Hammer - Black Creek Pioneer Village

It would seem I am on a black and white theme lately?

The photo above was made at a local pioneer village, which is made up of many historic buildings from the area which have been moved to a central location. Inside this village sits Roblin’s Mill which was originally built in 1842 in Ameliasburg, Ontario in Prince Edward County. It is a fully functioning mill, and as such, is the only operating stone mill in Toronto.

I have been to this building may times and made photos of windows, timberland gears. On this particular day, the dim sunlight was shining on one of the mill wheels that was exposed to show how it worked. Someone had left a hammer sitting on the wheel and it made a nice composition.

It was a low light situation and I did not use a flash and was pleased at just how well the VR on my sense worked at 1/10th of a second handheld. I really should have used a tripod!
