25 to life

this is marshall north carolina the first township of madison county. originally known as lapland it sits along the banks of the french broad river. strategically positioned at the buncombe turnpike or old drovers road which ran from tennessee through south carolina along which country folk would have driven their hogs, sheep, horses, mules and turkeys to market. it is a sleepy little place these days save the railroad which rumbles through town a couple times a day. thus maintaing the towns long history of being a staging post for taking goods to market. as i wandered through marshall remnants of the towns past abound in a curious state of opulent decay, but this is what makes marshall such a charming place – the charm of a town on the wane.

About ptrivers

I'm Patrick here are some of my pictures. I love taking pictures of things, mainly of things rather than people, i think this is because i hate having my picture taken and don't want to put other people in the same position. Also i hate asking folk to pose for shots i think it can really play up to peoples vanity. Still thats not to say that i wont someday take pictures of people, i just don't fancy it right now. I lived in London for about six years, there's just so much happening at a really hectic pace, almost out of control, teetering on the edge of chaos and oblivion, i miss it everyday the people and the places. I now live in the lake district which is impossibly beautiful and an incredibly inspiring place to be. The pace of life is still and sleepy a far reach from my previous life, but interjected with moments of exhilaration and adrenaline, its an interesting combination. If you like my photos or want to ask me any questions or perhaps would even like to buy some prints then please get in contact.
