Another image found in Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley. It’s changed a lot since the 1980’s when it was a treasure trove of wonderful things and images. But this image shows the kinds of things that were there.

This image is from an amazing old tractor I found at Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley.
I captured this image in Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley. While Rhyolite isn’t what it was in the 1980’s, a little still remains and I was fortunate to get this image the last time I was there.
Although this image is (like many of my images) from a Gold Rush ghost town, instead of California, this one was in Coaldale, a small town in west central Nevada along Highway 95 between Reno and Las Vegas. Again, wandering around and found this in an unexpected corner.
At one time you could find all kinds of wonderful images in Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley. I got this image the last time I was there in 1998, but Rhyolite had sadly changed since my first visits in the 1980’s and I’ve been afraid to return in case even more has gone.
Another unexpected find in the California Gold Country along Highway 49. Just wandering around, came around a corner, and there it was.
I found this in Mokelumne Hill, a marvelous little town just off Highway 49 in the California Gold Country. Great colors and a little sense of mystery.
I stopped for a red light in Minneapolis and saw this door from the driver’s side window. I had just enough time to take two quick shots before the light changed.
When I went back a couple of weeks later to do a proper shoot, the door had been replaced by a generic (and super boring) tan metal door. Seize the moment!
I found this unexpected door under the Hennepin Avenue Bridge on the side opposite downtown Minneapolis.
