Gold Country #9

Gold Country 9 large 200x300 - Gold Country #9

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.

Blue Door #1

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When I went back a couple of weeks later to do a proper shoot, the door had been replaced by a generic (and super boring) tan metal door.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!
