There are a few books on this subject. One aptly titled Ghost Towns of the Old West.

Pretty cool stuff and pretty spooky when you camp in an old building.
Thanks Nathan. We're heading out that way next month, so we might have to give that a look. Is that a gravel road going in there?
I wouldn't trivialize your work hear as just point and click. The secret to good photography is often in the view finder, what's left in and what's left out.
Nice composition here, regardless what camera you used.
Ah, he's just being humble. He knows how good they are!

It's only gravel for the last mile or so.

I will have to take a day off and go see!
I am planning a ride to Bodie next week. I am excited to see the place, I have heard a lot about it.

Another place to put in our retirement trips bucket.
Turn off the sound if silly banjo is an irritant.
I just came across these. They are textbook examples of good composition! Exposure is dead on as well but the composition is what makes these seemingly simple objects into great shots. Well done!!!!!
