Bodie State Historic Park is a genuine California gold-mining ghost town. Visitors can walk down the deserted streets of a town that once had a population of nearly 10,000 people. The town is named for Waterman S. Body (William Bodey), who had discovered small amounts of gold in hills north of Mono Lake. In 1875, a mine cave-in revealed pay dirt, which led to purchase of the mine by the Standard Company in 1877. People flocked to Bodie and transformed it from a town of a few dozen to a boomtown.

Another finalist for Textures in B&W, congratulations. Tried going here twice and both times it was closed due to fires nearby. Someday for sure.

Behind The Lens

Location
Taken at Bodie State Historic Park California a gold-mining ghost town.
Time
Taken June 21, 2014 early afternoon.
Lighting
It was a bright day even with a lot of high clouds in the sky so I wanted to capture the wagon along with part of the landscape behind it.
Equipment
This was a handheld shot using a Nikon D610 with a Nikon 16-35 lens.
Inspiration
One of the great things about Bodie is there are many old wood buildings, wagons and cars with lots of texture, perfect for converting to B&W. Having that sky that day didn't hurt either ;)!
Editing
This was processed using LR and a plugin from On1 Software.
In my camera bag
I usually carry 16-35 and 80-400 Nikon lenses. I also carry an assortment of ND filters and tripod.
Feedback
If you are taking B&W or color and thinking about converting it texture is the key. Lighting is important as well but one thing about B&W's is you can push the boundary of processing more than you can with color.
