Here is another shot from Rodney. I just couldn't take enough photos when I was there, which means I need to go back and do it again. I encourage anybody reading this to go down and visit the old ghost town. There is such an eerie but cool feeling there seeing the abandoned buildings and knowing the history of it.

This building sits next to The Old Country Store in Lorman. I thought it was a nice scene, because I love old buildings and because the trees were blooming with red flowers behind and the sky was awesome. I thought it would look nice as a vintage scene, so that's the treatment I gave it in post-processing since I pretty much saw it like this in my head before I took the shot.

I found this old church after taking a wrong turn looking for the road to Rodney. I ended up being way off but I at least saw something interesting. This church is about 1/4 mile up the road that runs right beside the Old Country Store in Lorman off of Hwy. 61.

Front Door

Thu Oct 5, 2017

This is the front entrance to the Presbyterian church in Rodney, MS. I loved how the light crept in through the slight opening in the door, creating very eerie and dramatic lighting, especially in "light" of the fact that I was in an abandoned town which is creepy in and of itself. I also added a texture that I caught from my recent trip to Hattiesburg.

Here is another shot from Rodney, right across the street from the Presbyterian Church. Anyone know what this building used to be?

We stopped at Alcorn State on our way to Port Gibson and other than it being absolutely in the middle of nowhwere, we had a great visit and saw what nice campus they have down there in Lorman, including a big football stadium. I thought with high school football already underway and college football being right around the corner that this would be a good time to post this photo.

Presbyterian Church

Rodney was such a great place to visit and very eerie. I could definitely see a horror film shot there. This is the Presbyterian Church there which is know for having a canonball embedded in the facade (just abover the upper middle window). I learned later that this is not the original cannonball that was fired at Rodney by the Union Army as that one eventually fell out and was later replaced by another one that is permanenty embedded to show where the original one hit. The church is actually being taken care of by a local society so it is not falling in like the one I posted yesterday. I love how the orange brick stood out against the green background.

Here is another photo from the neat ghost town of Rodney. This is, I believe, Mt. Zion Baptist Church (now abandoned) that sits at the end of this dirt road. I really liked how it looked from this view, as if it is sort of peeking out at me from behind a tree. I sort of discovered the hybrid monochromatic/color editing style while playing around in Lightroom and I love how it creates a black and white sky while keeping the shrubs and trees a muted green and then the pop of orange to finish it off. You will likely see more of this editing style in the near future, maybe even from Rodney.

Old Country Store

Sun Aug 13, 2017

This is the Old Country Store in Lorman in Jefferson County right off of Hwy. 61, just north of Natchez. We were told to be sure and stop here and get some fried chicken. We did stop, but we decided not to participate in the fried chicken on this day (we had already eaten and my wife has a gluten allergy) so we settled for just taking photos and going inside for a bit to look around. The old building has a lot of character that really fits in with the historic area. From the Old Country Store we made our way through twists and turns to the old ghost town of Rodney.
