A distorted wide angle shot of the Columbia Bar, a frame house which was formerly an early residence in Goldfield. In 1996 it was remodeled into the Cactus Club and later renamed the Columbia Bar. It no longer appears to be open. But you can say that about a lot of things in Goldfield, NV, a tiny town that was formerly the largest city in Nevada during the early 1900s, when gold was found in them thar hills. Now less than 500 people remain. And apparently none of them drink or eat here. I’ve seen photos that appear to have gravesites to the left, but I don’t remember seeing them there. Then again, it was dark, and I can’t see everything all the time. I’m off the hook. 馃榾

Ghost Towns of Nevada: Goldfield Motel

The Goldfield Hotel is by far the largest, most dominant building in Goldfield, and at one point was considered one of the finest hotels west of the Mississippi. Built in 1907 at the height of the gold rush, the hotel is now thought by many to be haunted, and has been featured in TV shows. The hotel is currently not open for looking around, but plans are underway for reconstruction. I light painted this, although some of the lighting is from the nearby streetlights. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although occasionally plagued with dark cloudy skies, I kept shooting, clear skies or no.

Ghost Town, Ghost Car

An evocative ghost town from yesteryear in the Nevada Desert, Gold Point, formerly Lime Point and Hornsilver before the name change to reflect mining for gold, is a well-preserved ghost town run by Herb Robbins. I believe this iron workshop was built by the Great Western Mine Company. I initially saw it, perched up on a hill, overlooking the expansive desert, and knew I had to photograph this. I lit the interior with a speedlight with a red gel to give the feeling of someone still working long nights. It took quite a number of tries to get this just the way I wanted it to feel. All colored light work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation. I stayed here for two nights, photographing the town, enjoying the beauty, and eating delicious food that Herb and Sandy serve. I loved this experience, and hope to return someday. These ghost towns and mines are a part of our rich history, and I am fascinated by the stories they still have left to tell. And these voices seem to whisper a bit more at night.

Are ghosts still working the late night shift in the iron workshop? An evocative ghost town from yesteryear in the Nevada Desert, Gold Point, formerly Lime Point and Hornsilver before the name change to reflect mining for gold, is a well-preserved ghost town run by Herb Robbins. I believe this iron workshop was built by the Great Western Mine Company. I initially saw it, perched up on a hill, overlooking the expansive desert, and knew I had to photograph this.

驴Son los fantasmas que siguen trabajando el turno de noche en el taller de hierro? Creo que este taller de hierro fue construida por el Great Western Mine Company en lo que hoy es el pueblo fantasma Gold Point.
