Meredosia Pipeline Construction

Backlit Forest by Cyrene Krey
Along the way to a lake we wanted to photograph at night, Winifred Bird, friend and journalist, and I stumbled across a construction site. Needing to check the map, we decided to pull off on the side of the road and see if any of the workers would speak to us. However, we soon found out that although floodlights and generators were running, nobody was in sight.

Winnie and I photographed the empty site while looking for someone to talk to. Eventually we decided to continue on towards the lake.
Construction Work at Night by Cyrene Krey
After leaving the first construction site for the lake, we stumbled across a second site. People were there and we decided to stop and try to talk to them. Unfortunately security believed we were there to make trouble. Although we remained in the car, they accused us of being there to make trouble. We soon left, but they followed, prompting me to stop and photograph the site. They claimed there had been problems at the site previously, although locals denied that. Considering the hostile behavior we received from security, we opted to skip the lake and go back in the morning along another route that allowed to avoid further harassment.
