GW - nice series showing the story quite well, and well photographed too! There are still a number of working gristmills in our area, and lots of ruins.

BigDawg - When there is one of those typical traffic jams at Cades Cove (everyone stopping to look at a critter, traffic backed up for a mile), the rangers there call it a "Bear Jam!"

Nice shots and tour of the grist mill. Nicely taken pictures under tough conditions and a fine narrative as well.

As the old saying goes "blessed are those who grind it out"!

Thanks for all the comments guys.
BD, I wanted to take the the bike on this trip but, I needed to do some work on it before taking it on a long trip. If a bear had showed up I think you would have found a getaway path even if you had to make one!

Neat pictures, the gears involved are interesting and I'm impressed that you did so well capturing them, considering what a small area you had to work with. As far as the flash, would you have had room to have an assistant hold the flash at a slightly different spot, then used the on-board flash to trigger it wirelessly? That might have helped, or not depending on the space configuration. In any case, nice series.

Down by the Old Mill Stream - looks like it was a fun trip. You would have been SOL without having the WA lens and flash along - good to have been prepared. You now have some nice souvenir shots for remembrance.

Well, yes that would have been ideal Harriet but, there were so many people constantly coming through that I think they would have tared N' feathered me for being in the way...
It would be cool though if one could get permission to set up a photo shoot just after closing time...

Thank you sir, and you are quite right about the flash and wide angle lens.
they practically lived on my camera the whole trip!

Thank you Gina, you're quite right, the rooms in early homes/cabins, were amazingly small!
