The White Church

For a long while now I have wanted to visit the ghost town of Rodney, Mississippi and photograph its old buildings, specifically this white church. I've read a little on the history of Rodney and how it was once a bustling river town until the Civil War and finally the changing of the mighty Mississippi finally did this town in. Some of its beauty still remains with two churches (one with a cannonball still embedded in it) standing amidst the overgrowth and being worn down by time.

I loved every second of exploring Rodney and photographing its beauty. This white church was so haunting, yet so beautiful and I wanted to reflect that in the photo, which I really hope that I did for whoever you are that is viewing this photo. More photos from Rodney to come in the future.
