This image captures the mysterious sense of waiting in an era long since gone. I captured this old town hall scene at Bodie State Park, California. Bodie an old gold mining town, is the only ghost town in the United States that is maintained in its arrested state or preservation. The building and their contents are in the same state as the town was totally deserted during the early 1930s due to a raging town fire.
Location: Bodie State Park, California
