I love my community. The Ohio Valley doesn't always have a great reputation, and so many people are anxious to leave as soon as possible. But there really is so much that is beautiful and wonderful and inspiring about what some call the Rust Belt.
Few places show off the understated beauty of the Valley like Heritage Port in Wheeling.
A few weeks ago, I had wrapped up a senior portrait session (those sunset shots are gonna be awesome!), and had a chance to take some night shots of the bridge—something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I didn't have all the gear I'd really need to take the shot in my head, but I was able to improvise a little and ended up getting a shot that I think shows off some of what is best about my community.
