About Me

Hi, my name is Liz and i’m from Sheffield, England. I decided to start a blog in order to combine my hobbies of travel, photography and history. I have been taking photographs for about 15 years, learning as I go and hopefully improving along the way. I have a passion for North America, so much so, that I recently completed a degree in American Studies. I am currently studying for an MA in Public History.

I enjoy visiting obscure places, as well as exploring abandoned buildings and towns, especially American ghost towns. My interest came from seeing a colleagues photographs of a California ghost town when I was 18, after that, I was hooked. At that point, I had not been to America but I had always wanted to go. I finally got to California in my late 20s, and have been hooked ever since.
