“Great were the lamentation and the cry when the news of this mischance was noised about the city. Such a tumult of mourning was never before heard, for the whole city was moved.” ~~ Marie de France
One or two of you might have noticed my absence from WordPress recently. Most others have more probably gone about their business no less aware. The truth is I have found myself unable to continue at the pace I have been attempting and so must step back and reassess what I wish to accomplish in what is left of my life. I will attempt to continue this series as long as possible. But I would also like to receive feedback on some of my newer work. Therefore, In Retrospect might evolve into something much more encompassing. I’m not sure. I know I will probably lose followers as I have not been able to comment lately. Not that my commenting is any more important than anyone else’s. But, if you are like me, those comments are an affirmation of the quality of our work. That is, when those who comment are not merely blowing smoke up our collective skirt. (Is that sexist? I apologize to those I might offend.)
Anyway- this week I have gone back to Goodsprings NV, a very small town about a half hour south of the Las Vegas Strip.
“Goodsprings was a settlement in the hills [approximately 35 miles south] of Las Vegas. It was an important town for milling ore from the surrounding mines. It was a mining camp with a hotel, a saloon that is still standing and in operation, and a general store. The end of World War I also saw the end of Goodsprings as a mining town. But there are still landmarks of the town to satisfy the ghosttowner.” ~~ submitted by Henry Chenoweth
So, a combination of old and new at Goodsprings NV. Population 229.
All photos were taken in Goodsprings NV on July 13, 2013 with the Canon EOS Rebel T2i and newly processed in November 2017.
In Retrospect is an ongoing series of older photos from my archives, newly processed. I hope you enjoy the series as much as I enjoy revisiting the memories.
