[imgbelt img=robmill530.jpg]A photographer returns to his hometown in southern Virginia. The textile mill and tobacco company have closed, but plenty of local spirits and shades remain.


These pictures, taken recently, manage to convey something of what the town was like 50 years ago, too. “The neighborhood pictures often vaguely remind me of stuff,” Rob said. “I’m not trying to present an objective picture of Danville. Rather these are impressions which come out of me trying to make what I think are good pictures of a subject that interests me and that I feel connected to.”
