Leftover bones are everywhere. They are throughout our surrounding communities, towns, and cities. They are residual pieces of history and decay, of the days gone by. They can be found driving down backroads, walking down spooky alleyways, and investigating abandoned homes and businesses. We are usually too busy with the hustle and bustle of everyday life to notice. Some, if not all, of these leftover bones will be treated as an eyesore or a nuisance and will eventually be destroyed without ever being documented by pen, paper, or photography. Documenting these remaining formations through her own eyes and a photo lens, the author and photographer of this book, April Wood Holdridge, invites you to join her as she tries to slow time enough for you to appreciate the magnificence of the descent of the days gone by.
