Saturday’s agenda included a car ride up the 258 North, approximately an hour outside of Jacksonville, NC, to look for photo ops.
I was determined to find all of the abandoned “gems” that I had been scoping out on my previous road trips in and out of North Carolina.
I was able to get most of what I wanted to capture (which I’m sharing with you below) as well as an additional property I photographed (before being chased away) that I will share sometime this week (when I have time to go through & edit them).
It’s been wonderful to have someone interested in riding along with me on these photo journeys, who may not be a photographer, but appreciates my enthusiasm and love for it. It certainly makes these photo hunts all the more pleasant!
Since I’ve tapped out my surrounding areas in NJ I love having another state to explore!!!
I used a number of editing software and actions on each of these to get the desired look I was going for.

A personal favorite (below)!
I processed this one two ways…I think I like the one above best because of the golden tones and the creepier sky but I’m getting various opinions…what do you think?
