Like an English Mill Town

I have been coming to Springfield, VT for 25 years now.  I haven't explored the town very much, but I did this year.  I did a lot of walking around, looking for old factory buildings.  This town was known as "Precision Valley" because of all the machine tool companies that once existed here.  So I walked around and photographed.  As I was heading back up the hill to my car, I saw this scene, that reminded me of photographs I had seen by an English photographer, of old mill towns in the UK.  While composing a photograph, suddenly a car came down hill with its lights on, and I realized I had the shot!  I love the mood of this, and decided to convert it to black & white.
