Photo – Old Truck

Hi,

This is the grill of an old International truck. Places like Jerome, Arizona have old cars on the outskirts of town. They were discarded decades ago and are slowly rusting away.

This car was at the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town in Jerome, Arizona. Some of the cars there are in excellent condition. The mine is like a turn of the century junk yard, and an amazing place to take photos. When I go there I spend hours photographing things both large and small.

Let me know if you have any questions about using, or taking, photographs.

Have Fun,
Jeff

Photo – Hanging Jugs

Hi,

I found these jugs hanging from the rafters of an old building at the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town in Jerome, Arizona.

There are so many old and interesting things to photograph at the Gold King that when I go there I spend hours walking around taking pictures. Keep an eye out for the chickens and rabbits that roam around, and the donkey, if the let him out of his stall.

Let me know if you have any questions about using, or taking, photographs.

Photo – Lightning Explodes Granite

Hi,

You’re watching a lightning storm and a bolt slams into the ground. Do you know what that does to the point of impact? If it’s sand, it makes glass, called a Fulgurite. But if it hits granite, it looks like the photo. You can see my large, manly foot to give you an idea of size.

We were hiking in the Granite Dells of Prescott and came across a flat rock area where several bolts of lightning had struck sometime in the past. You can see that the power of the bolt exploded some of the rock, revealing the lighter colored rock that hasn’t been weathered. The black chunk is a piece of granite that’s blackened on one side. Just above that are two small pieces of wood. About half of each piece of wood has been turned to charcoal.

When you consider that a lightning bolt is very hot, 53,540 degrees F (29,726.6 Celsius) it can do a lot of damage. In comparison, the surface of the Sun is only 10,340 degrees F (5,726.6 Celsius).

Let me know if you have any questions about using, or taking, photographs.

Photo – Hogback Cemetery

Hi,

This shot was taken just after sunset at the Hogback Cemetery in Jerome, Arizona. The two spiky things are part of a fence around a grave, and to the right is a fence around another grave.

This is a pretty cool graveyard, containing people from the town, miners and even a person who fought in the Spanish American War. There are graves with no markers, or simple wooden crosses, while others have sculpted stone markers. Not all graves are marked, so there’s a pretty good chance that as you walk on the paths, you’re walking across more than one grave.

If you haven’t guessed, I love to visit old graveyards.

If the weather is warm when you go there, keep an eye out for rattlesnakes.

Let me know if you have any questions about using, or taking, photographs.

Photo – Hungo Pavi

Hi,

This is part of Hungo Pavi, an Ancestral Puebloan great house and archaeological site in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico.

The small logs coming out of the wall support the ceiling for the first story of the building, and the floor on the second story of the building.

Photo – Canyon De Chelly

Hi,

Here’s the scene from one of the overlooks at Canyon De Chelly in Arizona. Just out of frame on the right is one of the many ruins you will find and can take a guided hike to. If you go to Canyon De Chelly, you will be surprised at just how big everything is.

Photo – Salmon Ruins Wall

Hi,

This is another photo of a section of wall at the Salmon Pueblo in New Mexico showing a more recent building style. You can tell it’s the newer style by the tiny rocks pushed into the mortar between the big rocks. I don’t know why they did all this extra work, but it does look nice.
