A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Furniture & Appliances

Roadside scene, Braxton County, WV.

From a technical standpoint I struggled trying to balance the lighting in this image.  Hopefully nothing looks too out of whack. 

When I was shooting this I did not notice the way the background mountain echoes the shape of the rooftop (so much for the all-seeing photographer theory!).  Upon reviewing the image on my computer that echoing shape leaped out at me and made me want to return sometime to explore the possibilities further.  Unfortunately it is some distance from my home though, so we’ll see.

  1. Did you have a look inside? It seems like there might be some furniture left…

    • Hey Florian, I didn’t get a chance to take a closer look but from a distance it appeared there was “stuff” in there.

    The treeline does really reflect the roof, nice old building 🙂

    • Thanks armadillo! Unfortunately it is easy to find failed businesses in this region of the U.S.
