Tombstones of Steel Town

Location: Weirton, WV

I grew up in an area that was once home to a thriving steel industry.  Many of the old structures aren’t in use any more, but they make for a very  interesting photographic location.

I met up with my cousin on a snowy day in West Virginia to shoot this former industry giant.  I got to explore areas I had never seen up close even though I lived in the area for 18 years.  I’m sure we will revisit this location in the coming months, as a single afternoon of shooting doesn’t come close to covering all of the possible angles.
