Glade Creek Grist Mill

This is the Glade Creek Grist Mill in Babcock State Park in West Virginia. I have been alluding to my new project for some time. It has finally begun. I am embarking on a multi-year journey around the United States to (surprise!) take photos. In addition, I will be writing, podcasting, blogging and hopefully incorporate some video at some point. I would love it if you all came along for the ride. I will still be posting some of my highlights here, but hop on over to http://www.miles2gobeforeisleep.com to find out more.

Charleston Capitol Building

This is inside the Capitol in Charleston, West Virginia. It amazes me that I could have the place almost entirely to myself.

Lincoln in Charleston

This statue, Lincoln Walks at Midnight, stands in front of the West Virginia Capitol Building in Charleston, West Virginia. It depicts Lincoln deliberating adding West Virginia to the Union during the American Civil War. West Virginia is the only state that was born out of the Civil War. I like both the realism of the statue and the contrast to our stereotypical Lincoln.

Abandoned Building

Even a run down old building can be beautiful in the right light. I was taken by this one here in Weston, West Virginia.
