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.
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When I went back a couple of weeks later to do a proper shoot, the door had been replaced by a generic (and super boring) tan metal door.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.
I found this image the way I usually do – totally by accident. The best way to get amazing images!
I was driving west from Minneapolis in April and ended up unexpectedly in a freak blizzard. Could barely get through. Saw a small town – nearly a ghost town – and pulled in just to see what was there. Was up to my knees in snow when I saw this and took a couple of shots.
Still one of my favorite images.
