Driving the Backroads
I sometimes spend a morning or afternoon exploring country roads in search for old buildings to photograph. Part of my motivation is to create an archive of these disappearing structures. But I also find old, abandoned structures make interesting fine art photography subjects. Images of these decaying buildings can evoke feelings of nostalgia and stir memories of our youth.
On this late June morning I decided to catch the ferry across the Neuse River and head up NC 306 to explore Pamlico and Beaufort counites in eastern North Carolina. In the past I’ve had a lot of success finding interesting subjects in Pamlico county. This was my first photo safari into the countryside of Beaufort county. While I didn’t find a lot of likely candidates, I did find one very interesting old shack and a scenic view of the wetlands. I also decided to revisit an “old friend” for a different composition. The following are some of the resulting photos from the trip.
