Old image but a very nice new logo :-) I like the composition a lot with the dry grass in the foreground, it underlines "nobody takes care of this anymore" even better, nobody bothers to cut it away, the hay days of gold digging is definitely over, people have moved to the cities a long time ago trying to find their luck elsewhere. The sky is absolutely great and how it seems to move. While the time has stood still in this place mostly, our world is turning as ever. So artistic, very nice.
An unusual POV to shoot this famous ruined car. We don't need to see the whole of it to appreciate it and it leaves space to include a couple of the ruined buildings. Yup! It's definitely broken.
I like the subtle shade of sepia you used here.
A classic image of Bodie, perhaps the most photographed object in Bodie. I like it for the close up approach of the car and still include the houses in the back. Black and white works best for this type of image.
In this almost-iconic image, the framing is superb with the pin-sharp grasses against the '37 Chevy Coupe. Its position in the lower corner allows some of the town to be seen against the curve of the mountain while the blur of clouds made me look for a slow shutter speed.
I thought this was an image from 2007. I remember the scene well; I think 2007 was the best year of my life
The old cars, also rusty and broken have their own charm. Your image in B&W shows this charm in a great way. The old buildings and the menacing sky complete this fine composition. A great addition to the theme.
How can this image be broken? Oh, it's the auto that's broken. I never tire of images from Bodie and the different interpretations people have of the relics in place. This auto has been photographed to death in color and B&W, but it is just made for a B&W conversion, especially if you have the right sky conditions. The last time I visited I tried an IR capture of this auto but it just did not work out very well. I had the sky conditions so I too when B&W. Love it.
passamos nas imediações deste lugar, mas não chegamos a vê-lo. estas povoações abandonadas são comuns no velho oeste, lembro de outra que vimos em nevada, mas que não entramos.
ruínas são sempre belos assuntos fotográficos, contam histórias mudas e nossa imaginação vai longe. muito bonito este enquadramento usando as formas clássicas da parte frontal do velho carro e as casas ao fundo. bem feito.
