    • Thanks for the comments jennygoth. Unfortunately West Virginia is a state that has lost population over the past 50 years, so we have more than our share of abandoned buildings- in many cases there’s no one left to keep things going.

  2. Perfect irony! Is the bucket covering a chimney? You have a great eye for composition! Is it “natural” or did you get pointers somewhere? I really struggle with it.

    • Thanks HoaiPhai, that’s one of the nicer things anyone’s said about my photography! I am aware of the rule of thirds, the golden triangle, etc., but mostly I work with a scene until I settle upon an arrangement of elements that just “feels right” to me. There are of course many more miserable failures than successes, but if no one sees them I figure they didn’t actually happen.

      Oh yeah, that is indeed a bucket covering the chimney. You’re observant to pick up on that detail, I love stuff like that.
