Typical Bodie Home


The foundation is giving way to the passing of years.

You wonder when looking in the windows of the buildings as to just how much was actually left behind and how much was placed or staged by the Park Service.

This interior shot looks pretty much as it was left by the owners 
although I would not leave my coat behind.

My guess as to why that first step out the door is a big one would be due to all the snow they had in the winter.  Best have the door up a ways from the piling up of snow.  
The steps down have long since disappeared.

I find it hard to get my head round that this place has snow being it looks like desert

It is indeed strange he left the coat, seems they left in a kind of hurry.

I wonder if some of the architectural artifacts were mined and reused somewhere down the road before Bodie became a state park.

Amazing... with no graffiti and no one took the coat yet. I love the window shot. Enjoy your day!

It's fun to look through places like this and imaging how they lived. Sure glad I didn't have to live like that.

Probably quite a bit of staging her...but that's okay by me as it gives us a good idea of what life was really like ther. Today it's a photographer's dream!
