Street Photography; Eastern NC Part II

Methodist Warehouse

The Queen Street United Methodist Church dominates what there is of a skyline in the small city of Kinston. Beautifully maintained, the church has been the focal point of countless photographs of the downtown area. This shot captures the Church’s Bell Tower as well as the rich brick texture of one of the ancient warehouses nearby.

Great BlueThe 

The side wall of another of the old warehouses that have been or are in the process of being re-purposed as shops, galleries, upscale loft apartments, etc  by the hipster  entrepreneur-developers who are giving the city new life.  The huge mural of the Great Blue Heron is testament to Kinston’s artistic renaissance.

These cast cement facades of tobacco barns are a salute to tobacco which drove the area economy for more than a century.  Tobacco is still an important crop in Eastern North Carolina but not to the degree that it was.  Next time, back to the coast.  Thanks for the look and have a good week ahead.  All shots taken with a Nikon D750 Camera and a 24-120 f/4 lens.

  1. The history that we have is amazing. My grandfather sold tobacco in the early 1900’s ..He traveled by ship to various places abroad. It was a different time. Thank goodness the preservation of our history. Your pictures are a help! Beautiful work!
