On Rt. 16, south of War, West Virginia
While on the road searching out drive-in theaters in 2005, I became intrigued with the ubiquitous but varied white-painted churches seen everywhere along the road. The theaters required work to be found, especially back before I had GPS or many of the surviving theaters had any web presence. The churches required no searching though, they're everywhere. The problem was to stop and look and decide if any individual one was distinctive enough either in structure or situation, to make for a picture. The two series of pictures grew in tandem. This is one of my favorites, made with the 8x10 Deardorff and 165mm Super Angulon.
