Photographer's Note

On a recent trip down to South Georgia to visit my brother, my ex-girlfriend and I passed through a small town called Unadilla. I wasn't familiar with the area, and knew nothing of recent occurrences in the town, but what we found was almost a ghost town. The older, 'downtown' portion of this small southern town was empty and many of the buildings were in ruins, or simply, without roofs or floors. Seeing all of this, i had to take pictures of what i saw.

The building in this photo had to be in the most disrepair. No roof remained or second floor. The building sat on the corner at the edge of the small town, right in front of a modern rail line, still being used. It wasn't entirely clear what the building had once been, but after walking around, and through, i discovered it must have been a bank at one point.

If you examine the photo, you will see a brick outcropping from the left wall, and looking a little closer you will see a door. The door is solid steel and had a small, dial combination lock system. On the door is a rust pattern that looks like the outline of a heavy duty hinge that is nearly the same height of the door, but apparently that piece was removed some time ago. Also, to support my theory that it was a bank, I noticed the tile pattern on the floor. The tiles seemed to end at a striped arc that extended out from the wall, and around in front of the vault. It appears as though a reception counter used to stand at that point, with hardwood floors behind (obviously rooted away or removed, because only dirt remains in place).

Lets just say i took many photos of this building, and others that were open around it, before climbing back into my car to continue our drive.
