Bodie Shadow Shots

Early last summer we visited Bodie State Historic Park and I spotted a variety of interesting shadows.

Those are terrific shadow shots, Martha! I particularly like the hanging lantern/lamp and the window shadows! You're right, as long as we have sun, we'll have shadows, it's just that in the northwest during the fall, the sun is elusive to say the least!

Have a great weekend!

We visited Bodie in August. Isn't it interesting?

Pacey said...

Oh,interesting they are indeed. I love that first shot with somewhat complicated shadows. :)

Interesting shots of what reminds me of the Old West- or what I imagine it to look like. Never been in your part of the country!.
I like the one with the lace curtain in the window.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Nothing like a place like Bodie to get really unique shadow shots! Old stuff is so photogenic!

I would love to have that ore bucket for a planter. All the restored/saved objects were really interesing.

What a fun place to look for shadows and you found nice crisp ones. The window is my favorite, I just love those zigzags!

Who would think that such man-made items could have such artistic style? Metal items like the buggy, bucket and valve could have such beauty, and all look even better as shadows? My favorite is the 'V' shadows on the cabin's curtains. What a great park in the desert - all the items show that life once was possible in the desert. Excellent captures!

You have a wonderful selection of shadow shots this week, Martha. My favorite is the window.

Wonderful shadows, wonderful rust....I really, really love old and rusty. For you to put them together with the shadows, double my viewing pleasure!

Have a great weekend!

Whenever i see an old window, I always wondered what went on in there.

Great group of shadows.

Twinkle Star Art said...

What a beautiful collection of rustic shadows. My faves would be light above the old door and the window shot, the place looks a bit haunted.

Wonderful photos, my favorite is the window!

I don't think I've ever been to Bodie but it looks like an interesting place to visit. Love your shadow shots ... especially the second one!
Hugs and blessings,

Very cool old stuff and shadows. You caught them well.

Martha, thank you for the comment about the geese! I came here, and found that I love your photos! I would say this one is my favourite, and scroll down, and by George, there would be another to rival it! I have decided that I am simply going to have to come back!
