Aug. 1 through Sept. 30, Bill Adkins will display a small portion of his favorite photographs at the Ronceverte Public Library during regular operating hours.
Originally from Monroe County, Bill moved to Greenbrier County after serving eight years in the military. Throughout his life, Bill has been appreciative of the beauty of West Virginia.
It is his feeling that all of West Virginia is so beautiful that he feels inspired to capture those moments in time through his photography. It is as if catching those special moments is a way of preserving them for not only him, but for others who are not surrounded by that beauty view them.
He often shared his photos with the library staff. They were all so in awe of them that they thought, “Why not ask him if he would like to share them with patrons and visitors to the library?” Bill was so pleased with the idea that he had some of his work matted and framed for the event.
All of his pictures on display are flowers, landscapes or wild life; however his skill is not limited to only those areas. Any type of photography that makes people stop, wonder, and think “how did he do it” are the types Bill loves to preserve.
