Black & White Photography

Old Country Post Office


Sometimes, out of the blue, one will come across something that just seems out of place. This building is one of those moments.

This is an old Post Office on a country road in WV. I’ve been wanting to photograph this for some time and I finally got a chance. When I took this photo I had in mind an old b&w square photo and this is the finished image.

The post office is nestled in a grove of trees along side a road and it’s just sitting there slowly deteriorating. I’m not sure how old it is but I would imagine that it is at least 50 years plus.

So, that finishes a week of “old photography” images, but it won’t be the last. Next week starts a new round of photography and I’ll see if I can come up with something along a Thanksgiving theme… :-)
