ABC Wednesday: R is for Ruins

Photobucket

Bodie, California - a ghost town in a state of arrested decay. A mining town, Bodie's population dwindled after the mines stopped flourishing. These days, only a small part of the town is still standing, but it's well preserved and a fascinating place to visit.

I would love to visit a ghost town! We looked for a couple in Nevada but they weren't true ghost towns, they just had some old buildings scattered within a community.

I love your black and white shots - Bodie looks fascinating!

Wonderful shots - it is kind of falling apart, isn't it?

Your ruins are beautiful, esp in B&W.
