In May of 2000 I made a trip to South Carolina and then to Richmond, Virginia, to research two magazine articles. In between, I worked in the Blue Ridge Mountains. After Richmond, I headed out to West Virginia, for no reason except I'd never been there. Something about what I saw and photographed made me return twice more before the year was out. On all three excursions I worked mainly with my 8x10 and 7x17 cameras, and just a little with the 12x20. Some of the work wants to be printed in silver gelatin, some in Pt/Pd. More trips to West Virginia are in order.
