I have this obsession with finding and photographing abandoned churches and old schoolhouses that can only be rivaled by Suzanne's obsession with outhouses. It's something about finding something that has been such an important part of so many peoples' lives, like a church or a school, just abandoned there to fall apart. I would love to know the stories these buildings could tell. I guess I'm a closet history nerd.
I've driven past this abandoned church on Middle Fork Road near Reedy, WV a few times, and have been taken by the country-gothic windows. I stopped today to snap off a few photos, despite the fact that it was so cold my hands were too numb to feel the camera. No matter-- look at that gorgeous sapphire-colored sky! Blue skies and bright sunshine can be deceiving.
