McDade Store

Wandering around the country side we stopped at this abandoned old store. It was on McDade Store Road, so we assume it was McDade Store. The sky was a dismal white and the trees had not leafed out, so I felt this treatment appropriate.

The post-treatment work is to my taste a little pushed, but this abandoned building looks very good despite everything
