Not sure why I’m attracted to scenes like this, pretty sure my wife thinks I’m nuts. 🙂 The little flag was what originally caught my eye.
Early morning roadside scene in Quick, West Virginia.
Had a couple technique breakdowns during the making of this image, but managed to coax out enough image quality to have a passable blog post. (Note to self: remember to check and see if your polarizer is attached to your camera before cranking the ISO up to 1600 and trying to handhold slow shutter speeds).
A lone leaf lying on a wood plank footbridge in Coonskin Park, Kanawha County, WV. I was attracted to this mini-scene by the puddle of dampness surrounding the fallen leaf.
Follow signs….a colossal “T”…..what does it all mean?
I never figured it out for certain, but after making this photograph I did have a sudden craving for a turkey sandwich.
Pretty sure I wouldn’t have noticed such a nondescript and innocuous scene without the sign’s directive.
This set of photographs was taken from the driver’s seat of my SUV in a Walmart parking lot while my wife shopped inside. Sadly I’ve been reduced to photographing at Walmart while I nurse a back injury. 🙂
Actually I had a great time trying to find interesting photos in such a decidedly uninteresting location. In fact I think this sort of challenge is worth further exploration.
An array of electric meters along the side of a building in Pinch, WV.
Fences and walls provide a bit of separation between this residence and a convenience store parking lot in Pinch, WV.
Basketball goal tethered to a rather large telephone pole.
This is scene I have walked past dozens of times, but then one day the absurdity of the arrangement suddenly struck me over the head and I had to make a photograph.
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.
