From the Bodie ghost town in the Sierras.

As a gold town, it boomed from late 1877 through mid- to late 1880. By 1915, it was mostly deserted.

Bodie is now an authentic Wild West ghost town. The town was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961, and in 1962 it became Bodie State Historic Park. A total of 170 buildings remained.

You did make it to Bodie. Wasn't that the coolest place? I wish I had 2 more days to wander around there. Did you use your Ir there?

Ken, thanks for the history lesson; what an amazing place; love your use of the wagon wheel as a powerful FG and framing element; high impact!!

I love it when you make a Finalist or Gold List. Each one of your images is a window to a different place or subject and is always interesting. Beyond that, your photographic experience and talent is always present. Congratulations, Ken.
