Hi All,
Thanks for posting your terrific photos!

Group Rules

Please use vague descriptions of places that are not well known. More rules than I care for (lol) so in a nut shell, just looking for real photos.

Plus a little clarification :)
Color or Black and white. Ghost towns which were connected to hard rock mining, agriculture, railroads. Something that is abandoned doesn't necessarily qualify.
Stick with and post your photos which are HISTORICALLY oriented and "real", ie, no very or strangely manipulated images, HDR, Instagram, weird angles, fake colors/mega polarization, staged photos or modern images such as gas stations, cafes, motels or even places with too many new "vintage porcelain signs"etc - lol.. I'm very cool with night photography- ambient, flash or painted with a White light (no gels or interior lighting). Please post your photos of cemeteries, dug-outs, old cars and extraneous things lying around that had a historical connection with the town before it was abandoned. Mining camps qualify. Populated areas are fine if it's historical and relevant. No modern operations/open excavation/pits etc.
Photos of Rhyolite, Virginia City, Nelson, and the likes are cool, but keep the reins in a little on these popular places! :) "Thinning is probable"
