I took this self-portrait in an abandoned cabin at the Elkmont Campgrounds in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park near Townsend, TN. This is one cabin in a ghost town that was created when the facilities were "officially" abandoned in 1990, but the state of disrepair shows neglect going back much further. The national park wants to level the town but, some of the buildings have been deemed to have historical value so the fate of the town will likely be disputed for some time.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
