Some pictures of houses I took while visiting the ghost town Bodie, in California.
In 1859 William (a.k.a. Waterman) S. Bodey discovered gold near what is now called Bodie Bluff. A mill was established in 1861 and the town began to grow. It started with about 20 miners and grew to an estimated 10,000 people by 1880! By then, the town of Bodie bustled with families, robbers, miners, store owners, gunfighters, prostitutes and people from every country in the world. At one time there was reported to be 65 saloons in town. Among the saloons were numerous brothels and 'houses of ill repute', gambling halls and opium dens - an entertainment outlet for everyone.

I'm assuming then I couldn't ask you permission to use this image for an RPG I made?

I was wanting to use it for a board image. Let me know if possible - otherwise I'll keep looking for stock. Thanks!

Actually I found a different stock image that seems to work better with the dimensions I'm using for my board images.
But thank you so much for your fast response and graciousness! For now, I guess your image will just be eye candy for me :)

have you played Red Dead Redemption? there is a ghost town in it and this chapel looks quite similar to chapel in the game, but this one isn't run down :)

Bodie was pretty cool, I got a ton of pictures from there when I visited. One of them was taken of this church from a side window looking in at the front.. Kind of looked like something was sitting on one of the side benches on the forward left wall.

The funny part? You call this a ghost town and yet there are clearly a few people standing in the back on the left. XD This is pretty cool though! I would love to see such a location! I'm just wondering how a picture that ALMOST looks like a simple vacation picture ended up with a DD. XD

:iconlacuisinefolle:
LaCuisineFolle Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, it is no longer inhabited, which is why it is classified as a ghost town. It is quite the popular tourist attraction, now.
Indeed, I never, not in a million years, saw that coming! xD

"I'm just wondering how a picture that ALMOST looks like a simple vacation picture ended up with a DD."

For the same reason a bunch of poorly drawn anime receives a DD... the Community Volunteer who chose to feature it saw something special in it that deserved a site wide feature. A DD is not an award. This particular image is not "art photography" it is "stock photography" meaning it can be used in art work by others. For stock purposes, it is wonderful.

I believe I do know what a stock photo is. It's just not often you see one like this with a DD. I may be wrong, but I believe the only photos I have seen so far with DDs, stock or otherwise, have also had a lot of artistic value. I can kinda see how this can be used though.
