Another shot of the ghost town of Bodie. Part of the rest of Bodie is reflected in the window of this boarded up door. You can see some of the old draperies still hanging on the inside of the window. Part of the fun of this HDR shot is seeing all the details in the wood, and even the nails.
If you like this shot, you may want to see the rest of my photos from Bodie.

An old car rusting away in the middle of Bodie, CA. This gold mining ghost town (now a state historic park) is an interesting place to visit just north of Mono Lake and Lee Vining in central CA. Within one year (1878) this town grew from 20 to 10,000 miners, gamblers, and other entrepreneurs searching for wealth. Years later it was quickly abandoned, leaving behind a well-preserved town.

I will most likely be posting quite a few photos from Bodie here in the coming days. This was taken near the center of town where some old wagons and a well can be seen. The larger building has now been converted into a museum.

Today visitors can wander through the deserted streets and peer into old houses and buildings, many of which were abandoned in haste when the last train left town.

Me and my girl. This was taken inside an abandoned home in the mining ghost town of Bodie. Katie noticed this old mirror hanging on the wall in a picture frame, and so I shot this photo of us while holding the camera low enough to be out of view.
