A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Abandoned 27

Didn’t get a chance to go on a photo outing this past weekend, but I still have a couple images to share this week from previous trips.

This was shot at an abandoned home I came across while driving a rough, dead end dirt track through the hills of West Virginia.

Goose Creek Road, Kanawha County, WV

  3. To further the colour discussion… it looks like a tri-tone. That aside, I love the texture of the wall and the successif framing of the windows!

    • Thanks mewithmycamera. There was a pronounced color temperature variance between the shaded wall of the home and then sunny vegetation seen through the window, it made for an unusual color balance in the image.

  6. I love that in abandoned houses you can still get the spirit of the place, the color of the exterior, etc. Thanks again for bringing these houses back to life, just a bit.
