A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

The Other Side

A garbage strewn yard alongside a dwelling in rural West Virginia.  It’s not all rainbows and unicorns out there.

As regular readers of this blog know by now, I love to photograph old abandoned buildings.  The problem is that sometimes it’s not easy to tell the abandoned ones from the occupied.  On more than one occasion I’ve stopped the car to investigate what appeared to be an abandoned structure only to see a light on inside or smoke rising from a chimney.  Hopefully I’ll never accidentally walk into someone’s living room.

In this case the house was definitely occupied.  I think.

    • Thanks Toad Hollow! I guess it’s true that great (or is it twisted?) minds think alike.
