Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind ( New York 2 )

I am always fascinated by the skyline of New York city.

My mind is switched off completely to NY when I look at the skyline.New York 2

Here is a one of my favorite photos of NY skyline, seeing NYC from afar.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Time (Ghost Town)

Bodie in Calfornia is a town frozen in time in a “state of arrested decay”.

It is  originally a mining town from the late 1800’s.DSCF3541

What’s left today stands in a state of “arrested decay” and is maintained by the California State Parks System, who took over the town in 1962 to make it a State Historic Park.DSCF3527

It is a stunning experience to visit this town with many things reminding you of the past.

Abandoned houses, abandoned shops which still have something still displayed in the shop windows.DSCF3531

Abandoned cars which remind you that they were once in a good working condition.

Photographing abandoned houses in HK is one of my favorite activities; I enjoy going around photographing them.DSCF3580

These photos were taken by my wife while travelling in North California.

It is a trip I have sorely missed as I have to stay at home with more important things to deal with.

Hope I will have a chance to visit it one day.

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy ( Landscape)

This week’s DP photo challenge is Creepy.

The hoodoos or goblins in the Goblin Valley State Park offers one of the most creepy landscapes.CIMG4388

Here is an introduction from the Wikipedia:

Goblin Valley State Park is a state park of Utah, USA.

Its eminent feature is its thousands of hoodoos and hoodoo rocks, referred to locally as “goblins”, which are formations of mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles, some as high as several meters. The distinct shape of these rocks comes from an erosion-resistant layer of rock atop softer sandstones.CIMG4375

The park lies within the San Rafael Desert southeast of the east limb of theSan Rafael Swell and north of the Henry Mountains. Utah State Route 24 passes about four miles east of the park. Hanksville lies 12 miles to the south.CIMG4409

The photos were taken by my wife.
