Just gotta love ghost towns and rustic settings, the history behind the places and the people that made them famous. The Sierra’s have had a number of mining towns some well known some not as much, Bodie is one of those well known ones. It was also one of those places i grew up as a kid. It seemed a lot bigger than, streets aren’t as long now. Just as busy now as it was than, lots of people there in the summer makes it fun getting the shots of store fronts, hurray for little waves that come and go.
The great thing is that you never know what will be dug up, something small or large. For instance the bedroom. It was just the inside of a house that the light was coming in from the side window lighting up the room, but the detail in the wall paper and the mattress made it interesting. Sometimes the smallest of elements are the most interesting when it comes to working in ghost towns not the overall town because those details reflect a person being there.
