Recently I was invited to speak to the Charlotte Camera Club. Whenever I travel with a camera I try to build in time to explore. On both of my travel days I was able to explore some of the back roads near Charlotte. I was not disappointed! My discoveries included beautiful forests, old cars and, in the case of the image above, a beautiful fixer upper. Truthfully this house is too far gone to restore but I could not help but marvel at the architecture. The roof lines and the wraparound porch seem to suggest that at one time this was a beautiful house.
All the stops to take pictures added a few hours to my travel time, but the moments and the images made this a worthwhile endeavor.
