Ghostly Mill

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, HDR, Tempe

One of the final shots I took on the Tempe Photowalk was of the abandoned Hayden Flour Mill. This building is locked down as far as security goes, so there is little chance of getting in without being caught and prosecuted. So for now, I will admire it from afar.

I like the edge lit of the mill. We really need to find a way in there. 🙂

What a bewildering structure! The beautiful light and soft focus of the those cylinder things, keeps you from getting your head around what a creepy place this is. The sheer height is mind-boggling, but you captured it!

Love the shot. I have one myself that I haven’t decided how to process yet.

I just read an article this morning that the fences are coming down and that they are turning the area into an events area. The interiors will still be closed though.

It does look rather ghostly 🙂 I wonder how you could convince them to let you in for some photos.
