The Thompsons

Company housing in the mining ghost town of Darwin, California. The Defiance Mine was the principal mine of the district, but the Thompson / Essex mine was the next most lucrative.


"Porch light" effect created by shining my Maglite over the doorway from behind the camera. The recliner and the rest of the scene was lit by the full moon. 3-minute exposure.


See the Darwin set page for more info on the history of this site.
