Based out of Richmond VA, urban explorer Joel Handwerk of Lithium Photo was seemingly fated to rediscover the ruins of a former hotel perched upon the shore of Chesapeake Bay. Though Handwerk was initially disappointed to find the hotel had been demolished mere weeks before, a little persistence on his part soon revealed a far greater reward.
