Superb detail and composition. Very, very well done
20 Jul 2010 7:01am
If there was no this modern car we could really imagine in a decoration of western. I like!
20 Jul 2010 7:15am
Like a movie set...
20 Jul 2010 7:56am
Echo Daryl's comment! Just add a cowboy on horseback and you're sorted. A wonderful shot. I'm always amazed at the clouds in your shots - it's beautiful
20 Jul 2010 8:03am
I agree with the former comment. A real cinematographic quality here. I'm on the setting of The Grapes Of Wrath. Steinbeck would have loved it. As well as Ansel Adams. 5 stars for me.
Thanks for your sweet comment Steve, you're a gentleman. :-)

20 Jul 2010 1:05pm
A black and white western, can't say I've seen one in a while, beautiful lol
20 Jul 2010 1:15pm
I would have thought this was taken several decades ago if that Jeep weren't hiding in the back! Did you go inside this building or is it too unstable?
20 Jul 2010 1:36pm
@Amanda: It seemed to be tightly boarded up so, I didn't try to go inside. Plus, it looks like a good place to harbor creepy crawlers.
Magnificent shot and indeed a spooky atmosphere.....:-0
20 Jul 2010 1:51pm
cool capture !
20 Jul 2010 2:50pm
A fine old building under that marvelous cloudy sky. You handled the harsh overhead lighting of the place very well. Looks like it could be a fine movie set.
20 Jul 2010 3:17pm
Great monochromatic processing here which also brings out the detail seen in the clapboard siding of the building.
20 Jul 2010 3:26pm
I love it! This is the kind of place I wanted to find out there in AZ or NM. But while Jerome is a "ghost town" it is also a tourist destination and doesn't seem to have this kind of feel. Great photo! 5 stars!
20 Jul 2010 3:32pm
@Viewfinder: I agree. Jerome is a fun place but has too many people and too few ghosts.
Beautiful monochrome. Outstanding !
20 Jul 2010 3:36pm
Another excellent record, maybe next time a bit of cloning Steve, ( the truck)
20 Jul 2010 3:48pm
An image of the old west (apart the car on the bg).
20 Jul 2010 4:11pm
20 Jul 2010 4:15pm
wow..very special series:)
20 Jul 2010 5:03pm
This is great again --made me mad when I looked
on the internet and the webs pictures were awful.
Yours are amazing each time.
20 Jul 2010 6:04pm
No profit any more here...
20 Jul 2010 6:47pm
This is a great series and there are some splendid captures. This is one of the best in my view. It is like a scene from a western (apart from the Jeep at the back!) movie.
5 étoiles, c'est superbe !
20 Jul 2010 7:55pm
Very good !!
20 Jul 2010 7:59pm
Great one, Steve! Really wonderful composition.
20 Jul 2010 8:12pm
No no, I don’t stop here! I’m frightened! Sky and buildings seem unreal and so ghostly! But magnificent atmosphere!
20 Jul 2010 8:30pm
Un décor de cinéma !
20 Jul 2010 9:26pm
I agree with earlier comments that this is very cinematic, such wonderful B&W work, I am still looking for tumbleweeds to roll by
20 Jul 2010 10:36pm
Very nice composition and processing. I love the sky.
20 Jul 2010 11:32pm
Is that a place for stop over? A classic shot!
21 Jul 2010 1:53am
A really good image in BW, Steve. A fine series indeed.
21 Jul 2010 2:25am
Amazing b&w ! 5 stars !
21 Jul 2010 4:22am
21 Jul 2010 1:02pm
Fantastic one ! Like a piece of movie ! Great !
21 Jul 2010 3:52pm
wow.... AWESOME B&W...
21 Jul 2010 4:27pm
great movie western mood !
21 Jul 2010 5:46pm
I'd think this place was still open! Incredible shot!
21 Jul 2010 6:25pm
You really know how to present this stuff . . another brilliant image.
21 Jul 2010 8:12pm
22 Jul 2010 9:51am
très belle composition.
22 Jul 2010 9:18pm
Beautiful, Stunning! Looks right out of the old west! I see John Wayne!!! We like the same type of photo's! I always look forward to your pics! We need to go into business together!!! 5*****!
23 Jul 2010 7:04pm
I like very much this image !
25 Jul 2010 4:32am
Welle composed, and good tones of B&W.
I agree with Mike... without the truck, it's a pic of another century !
25 Jul 2010 6:15pm
Definitely ghost town material, I feel vibes just looking at it.
