    Never saw a candy colored ghost town before. Very interesting, thanks.

    As I got further into the main site I found it more & more interesting. I explored in & around Byron, CA on old 650 Triumphs many times & took my Army training at fort Ord. Those WWII era barracks were creaky in 72' it's hard to belive any are still standing. They were built with an expected usefull life of 10 years. Blast from the past.

    This photographer has developed a very weird technique, I like it.

    Come to think of it, those Triumphs were as creaky as the barracks...but they also lasted much longer than expected.

    I've seen his work before, and really like it. Some of his pictures have made it to CD covers. I'm thinking of stealing his ideas and trying a few of these types of shots myself.

    Thanks for posting the link.

    IIRC he was a member on here awhile back. Either way his site was brought up before, but it's worth re-mentioning.

    There are quite a few photographers out there that do this type of process. I've seen a few that even use the ghost town/abandoned site theme as well, with equally impressive results. One even used different people to simulate ghosts in a house.

    You are right Tsarevna, it is one of the better ones. I feel like I should have a camp set up just around the corner of the old wall, listening to the desert sounds. ****, I love your country.(not that mines all that bad, but ****.....the good 'ol US of A is purty!

    I'm no longer dismayed at the dates and how long ago it all was, so....... in 1971 I was able to buy a 1969 Bonneville. Two days later I went 100 mph for the first and last time. I might be known as "gravelrash" but 100 was just too darned freaky! But that bike was going like it was on a rail. I never rode a better handling machine.
    Triumphs were a blast, but you very soon developed a "love-hate" working relationship with the world's leakiest oil pumps and those primitive British electrics!!!
    Still, they were light enough to push pretty easy!

    "those primitive British electrics!!!"

    We automotive types refer to Joe Lucas (of Lucas electrical) as the Prince of Darkness!

    Yes, I've been there. I once had the distinct pleasure (Like a pair of pliers squeezing your privates) of owning a 1972 MGB GT. Don't get me started.
