On January 11, 2014 I had the pleasure of participating in a Second Line Parade, back in my home town of New Orleans, Louisiana. Though I'd seen hundreds growing up there, this was the first I've actually ever taken part in. Second Lining is an old tradition in New Orleans and considered a part of our cultural heritage.
When I found out I would be taking a trip up to Pennsylvania to shoot a few locations, one of them that immediately popped into my mind was Centralia (not spelled Centrailia, the sign above is misspelled for some reason). For those who don't know of this place, Centralia is a borough in Columbia County, PA. which in 1962 had a population of around 1,100 and as of now has only 10 residents who refuse to leave. It has been stripped of a zip code, mail does not run, buildings and homes have been demolished and roads now lead off to nowhere. There are no stores, no schools... nothing. It is a ghost town with a few exceptions.
