A few weeks back I asked a fellow photographer if he wanted to get out of town for a day and go shoot somewhere different for a change. Luckily he said "yes!" That was all I needed to hear. We sat off on a Sunday afternoon from Springfield, MO headed west towards Joplin, MO with no plan set in stone. I have heard of this place that people were calling a "modern day ghost town" near Picher, Oklahoma. We looked it up on our smartphones and made our decision. That's where we are going! We got off the interstate I-44 and mapped out our directions on our phones. As luck would have it, the town was not very far from Joplin, MO.
