Several weeks ago at the library, I stumbled upon a book called Abandoned Kentucky by Jay Farrell. According to the author, “Abandoned structures are places that open the imagination and invite interpretation. While often overlooked by passers-by, their skeletal remains act as the perfect subject for the camera, quietly waiting to be captured and shared.”
Farrell, a Nashville resident, focused his camera on southern and western parts of Kentucky. The need to seek abandoned structures in Clark County fairly hollered out at me. So with Clare at the wheel and me behind the lens, we were off. With so many targets of opportunity, the results will have to be shared in a sequence of WinCity articles.
