A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Abandoned 25

A peek inside the abandoned home featured in yesterday’s post, photographed through an exterior window.  Two exposure blend to balance the lighting.

My Sunday morning drive deep into the hills of Kanawha County, WV, turned up a handful of abandoned dwellings instead of quaint country scenes, so I will probably continue to feature a few of them through the following week.  Although I find abandoned homes to be a fascinating subject (hence my 25th such post on this blog), it is also somewhat disturbing to find such a concentration of them in one area.

  1. Wonderful shot! I agree it is sad – a sign of the times I suppose.

  3. Beautiful shot. Having lived in West Virginia for a while, it’s sad to see such things, but still abandoned houses are indeed a fascinating subject. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for the comments KatiesCameraBlog! Some areas of rural West Virginia are littered with abandoned homes, it is indeed sad.
