From one of those streets followed a road around a valley and came out in Newell WV. What a nice drive, I enjoyed the tree lined, creek, curvy roads. Sort of an amusement park feel but with better scenery! Took another side road & found a few abandoned buildings on top-with surrounding fields, What a lovely lovely setting! Have no idea why places like these look they were just up n left when its such an ideal place to live. For whatever the reason it made for photo opportunities, quite the excitement for me, to find it. I was tantalyzed & mesmerized by the scene and having become interested in history of general area, it left much to my imagination.
With recently downloading Topaz Labs' trial B&W Effects-I thought I'd try a few filter effects which seemed befitting for the scene.
