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.

 

 

The Abandoned Cabins at Bodie

I have seen pictures taken of the abandoned cabins at Bodie, South West of the States.

This one taken by my sister-in-law last year shows a cluster of cabins in a slightly different light.DSCF3541

Some of the roofs have a greyish- blue tint.

This makes the picture looks like a painting!
