In the afternoon, we visited the once booming town of Bodie, CA. Bodie is now a ghost town with buildings and mills still standing from its boom years in the late 1800’s.


The town teamed with photographers, many using large format cameras. There was a buzz of excitement and Mike caught many photographers discussing lighting on their subjects. Most of the large format photographers were staying all day and waiting for the right lighting for their photograph. I used my digital SLR, but since I don’t have the patience for the right lighting to come along, I just got what I could get. Here is a photo taken from inside of the Dolan House. The second photograph was taken on the rocky road leading out of Bodie.
