On a recent visit to the Smoke Hole along the South Branch of the Potomac River in Pendleton County, West Virginia, I happened upon Shreve’s Store. I was tired and thirsty at the time, so I pulled in hoping to score some refreshments. The “Live Bait” sign in the window gave me hope that this remote country store was open for business, but alas everything was closed down for renovation.
So, of course, I did what any photographer worth his salt would do. I made an image! So here it is, in all its glory, Shreve’s Store. May the Great Nightcrawler In the Sky bless them with brisk business when they re-open.
