    (my intent anyway with this image).
    10-08-19. Bodie Historical Park and Ghost Town.
    It had been @ 60 years since I had been there and it was fun to walk around and explore. I got several takes of smaller scenes but I thought this view really put one back in the day.

    Nicely done Barry, I think it was close to 60 years since I have been there as well. I don't think I got to this spot.

    I like the old timey feel you gave to the B&W processing. The white vignette adds to the 50's feel to the image.

    That was one of my first destinations on the trip I took right after I retired. A fun place to shoot for all types of subjects ranging from wide angle to the small tight shots of the things that were left behind.

    Hey Barry, this definitely has a very vintage B&W feel to it. Nice job there. And congrats on getting back there. Are you now planning on waiting another 60 years before your next trip to Bodie?
