In 1859, prospectors chasing rumors of mineral wealth found gold east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their discovery gave rise to Bodie, one of the West’s wildest gold mining boom towns. By 1880 the phrase “Badman from Bodie” described the town’s rambunctious inhabitants, earning the community a reputation for violence that rivaled Tombstone, Deadwood and Dodge City.
Today Bodie is a ghost town, preserved in a “state of arrested decay” by the California Department of Parks and Recreation as Bodie State Historic Park. Explore a once-vibrant town left frozen in time.

Well, their are times that you just wait for that perfect picture to be shown, well for me that is! lol… I have to say that I was so proud when I took this image back in 2008. It was my 35mm Canon. I t was given to me by my best friend one Christmas when she surprised me! I still remember when he had gone camera shopping for her and it was actually for me!!! She kept asking me, do you like this camera and I was oh my GOD yes! At that time cameras were expensive and the body of that camera was 800.00! And then the lens was separate and that was 1,200! So do that math! lol.. This image came from that camera! And the tittle of the challenge couldn’t fit any better!!! Enjoy it!..

Hello, everyone. Not sure what happened but my 2 post got mixed and one just disappear and had to do this one all over again! Oh, well stranger things have happened before! lol.. Enjoy it…
PS: I will be posting my new work from a trip I took to a ghost town called ” Bodie”!!! It was amazing and the story behind it as well. This town was once a booming mining town and one day everyone just left the town and left everything how it was!!!! Plate settings on tables, beds done, I mean it was crazy and amazing to see this. You see books open, glass ware, lamps, shoes, etc. So, I will keep you in suspense for the moment!!!! Until then. Peace…..
