In the woods of Kentucky, there lies an area called Pope Lick. A railroad track stretches across the eerie landscape. The famous Pope Lick Bridge is steeped in legend... It's said that a terrifying Goat Man roams the woods around the bridge. Many people have tried to catch a glimpse of him, by waiting on the railroad tracks or under the rusty beams of the imposing structure after sunset. Whether the Goat Man is real or not, the quiet woods and the lonely train bridge give a person chills. Do I believe in the Goat Man? I'm not certain, but I won't be taking any photos there at night.

A sensitive amateur photographer, capturing the world one click at a time. Photography: A hobby that is more than just a hobby. That is my philosophy.
