As They Should Be


Really, pictures of Bodie probably ought to be as they were in that time period.

Sepia was the most prevalent tone for photos back then,

yet I prefer black & white over sepia.

Some would rather see the colors though so here you are.

The letters on the taller building in all three photos are I.O.O.F.
This was the Odd Fellows hall.

Must been hell of a lot of work to get bricks there.

I think the sepia suits very well for Bodie.

I'm thinking this must have been quite a nice little town in it's day. I think sepia suits these photos well though I do like seeing it in colour too.

Your photography is so appealing black or white.

I am fine with the Sepia, though like you, I prefer the B&W, John!
Nice work.
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)

I actually like the sepia of the three, maybe because it does evoke the time period.
