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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This picture was taken last year by my sister-in-law when she and my wife were travelling in the South West of the States.
This seems so unreal. Everything seemed frozen in time.
The pictures from Bodie are just so haunting!
This week’s photo challenge is Orange.
However, this is not my favorite color.
For colors, I more prefer yellow, green and blue.
Here is a photo taken by my sister-in-law while travelling with my wife last year in the South West.
They passed through a ghost town – a previous mining town which is now deserted.
This photo shows the orange colored wine bottles taken in Bodie.
If readers are interested, I may share more photos of this ghost town.
