A Special Time in Bodie

Daybreak Over Bodie, CA, JUN 2017

Bodie, CA is a ghost town in east central California. It is a state park whose buildings are kept in a state of “arrested decay”; i.e. as they were when the last residents left. I’ve photographed at Bodie many times because there are so many interesting things to shoot.  About 2 weeks ago, The Bodie Foundation, a non-profit that supports the park, hosted a sunrise shoot for photographers. We were able to get into the park at 5:00AM instead of the normal 9:00AM and, instead of the normal crowds, there were only about 10 of us. It was a marvelous morning; quiet, comfortable temps, and a chance to watch the sunrise play across the town.  I wish I could have cloned myself because there were so many places I would have liked to have photographed simultaneously.  I hope you enjoy these images.
