Fantastic Photos. You have a knack for capturing the reality / decay that is becoming almost ubiquitous away from the Major Metropolitan Areas (and I say this as a guy who will often get in the Subaru and drive out there with a camera).
Great Job & Good story. Howsoever, I must point out that even before we were afflicted with TheDonald, the vast majority of the residents of any particular rural county you choose were voting Republican and thus aiding and abetting the very corporations that were working hard to extract their last $$ and leave them penniless. Why?!? Inquirin’ minds would like to see that question get more attention. . .
