Sean Toler is an amateur photographer living in the Richmond, Virginia, area. He got into photography as soon as he had a 35mm point-and-shoot camera as a teenager. He took many a sunrise or sunset photo with it; in fact, he still photographs them to this day. His involvement with abandonment photography began, and remains, something personal for him. As a teenager, his first real job was at an old country store. That country store no longer exists and unfortunately, he never thought to photograph it. He now hopes that by capturing old buildings such as this on camera, he is helping preserve part of history as more and more of these old buildings succumb to weakness and decay or are demolished in the name of progress.
