There are a lot of abandoned & forgotten churches in the Mississippi Delta, but not this one. I'd been shooting for about 15 minutes when a car pulled up. Now, here I am miles & miles from anything, in the middle of a field & I became concerned about myself. Turns out, George & his wife were coming by to make sure I wasn't a looter. He then gave me a tour of the cemetery pointing out his family members & especially his baby brother. He also showed me the founding pastor's grave & where the new church is. We said our goodbyes & I watched as George & his wife took an evening stroll along the field's edge. Picture is below.
