The Hoosegow

Based on what I have read about Bodie, it was a fairly typical gold-mining town—meaning the jail was rarely empty.

Although you can't walk into this building, you can peer through one window to get a fairly good look at the cell door. I managed to poke my lens between the bars and get a shot with the help of a little fill flash.

I took this shot after sunset while we were at an RV campground in Bishop, CA. While you are at the Eastern Sierras Gallery, look for a couple more shots from that evening (including the rising full moon).

This is at least a day late, but i just got it today and had to pass it on to viewers. Take a moment to look and you won't be sorry. It is a beautiful tribute.

Plenty of structures in Bodie need a little help remaining (somewhat) upright.

Remembering 9-11

(Click on the thumbnail to view larger image)

I decided to remember that September 11 in 2001 by posting one of my favorite photographs of Old Glory. I'm old-fashioned enough to get a little weepy each time I see her. Long may she wave.
