Bodie State Historic Park is one of the most photogenic historic places in California. The honey-colored wood of its houses, the sagging roof lines, and the rusting auto bodies are famous. There may not be a lot of original material left at Bodie, but it's still a fun place to explore with (or without) a camera.
In recent years, the park has been allowing tours and photography workshops inside several of the old buildings that are normally closed to the public. This has provided access to a wealth of "new", previously inaccessible material.
Some of these photos were taken during two such workshops in 2007 and 2013. Others were taken through open windows and doorways over the last several years.
