I've been pretty absent here on Google + lately. I've not had the opportunity to add more work, besides racing as I do each summer. Luckily, a friend led me to this location, so I was able to get some recent shots done.

That's pretty much the way all of Mcdowell county is, +George Fletcher. The poorest county in the state; and the one that was the biggest coal producer we ever had. Part of me hates it's all this way - but, I also love all the things I find as well. If you really want to see the heart of coal country that's dying, it's the place to be.

You realize you are now way up in the holler, when the only directional signs are hand made and no longer the ever present green state signage.

Yes, Mcdowell, +Mike Martin. And I'll let you in on a secret - I was too much of a wuss to cross the walking bridge to it. That's why it's still hidden in the trees. ;)

Tresspassing expert and dirt photographer extraordinare...
Introduction
I'm a photographer first and foremost, rarely venturing out the door without my camera. It is my muse and medium. I'm quite involved in the regional dirt racing world. My love for trespassing and abandoned old remnants trump anything. I can talk my way out of a wet paper bag thanks to years of horrible dark soul draining telemarketing supervising.  Thankfully that decade is over....
Bragging rights
Had a few pieces in galleries, donated work to a few good causes, and the best damn dirt track photographer in Southern WV (being the only one I can claim that!) I am the official photographer for Beckley Motorsports Park, and Thunder Mountain Speedway. This is bragging rights, right?
