At the Mill Window in Black Creek Pioneer Village by 

The Roblin Mill in Toronto, Ontario, Canada`s Black Creek Pioneer Village is actually a fully functional mill. Using a large water wheel as its power source and the various tools, grinding stones, etc. that were employed in the 19th century, it grinds wheat and other grains, which are then made into bread and other products in the village`s bakery and sold to visitors. I turned away for a moment from listening to the craftsperson explaining the milling operation, and noticed the pretty vine growing outside the window and the objects on the table in front of it. It made such an attractive picture that I couldn`t resisit actually taking a few of it. Shot with my Nikon D7000.

I’m a photographer living in Toronto, ON, Canada. I enjoy photographing the architecture, street life, plants and water fowl in my home city. I also love travel photography and capturing reflections on all possible reflective surfaces.

    Love it!! awesome capture..I have one posted with the window at the mill..this window caught my eye also…your capture is beautiful!!!

  • Yes, that window really does catch the eye. I’d been to the Village many times, but I’d never actually gone into the mill building before until the day I took this shot. I really enjoy going out there. There’s always something interesting to see and shoot, and I enjoy listening to the craftspeople, too.

    Lovely image Gerda. I think I may have been to Pioneer Village many years ago; deserves another visit soon. Is it up Islington or Martin Grove north of Hwy 407 (somewhere up there)??? Great image.

  • Thank you very much, Hany. I don’t drive and have to use the TTC, so I can’t tell you how to drive there. I take the subway to Finch, and then take a number 60, I think it is, bus going west. The bus ride takes about 20 minutes or so. I know I’m getting close when I see a sign advertising Black Creek Pioneer Village on the right. The stop for the actual village is about 4 or 5 stops from that sign. The Village is open to the public (for a quite steep admiossion fee) 7 days a week from May 1 to December 23. It then closes for the winter.
