Jerome

Closeup with a Chicken

While wandering around the Gold King Mine Ghost Town, I discovered that I really liked chickens. Not eating them, mind you, but photographing them.

Jerome in the Fall

by Kristi Hines

This past weekend, my husband and I took a trip out to Jerome, AZ for another visit to the Gold King Ghost Mine Town. Along the way, while scoping out a way to get to an urbex scene down the hill, I looked up and noticed what remained of the fall colors in the town.

Wrecked

by Kristi Hines

Something about an old, rusted up vehicle that is just hanging out, somewhat abandoned always makes for a great subject to shoot.

I’m really not sure what this used to be, but it was some ruins on the side of the road in Jerome. Inside was an weather-worn copy of the book Policy Paradox and Political Reason that I’ll post at a later date when I’m feeling a bit bookish.

During a day trip to Jerome, Arizona, my husband and I took a tour of the Gold King Mine Ghost Town. While he was shooting classic automobiles, I snuck past a warning sign about rattlesnakes (fortunately it was cold so those weren’t anything to worry about) and found this great area with a couple of run down sheds along the hillside. The cloudy day made a beautiful backdrop.

It never ceases to amaze me how Jason and I can go to the same places, and come back with a completely different set of photos. While he found some vehicular ghosts of the past, this was one of my favorite shots from Gold King Mine near Jerome, AZ. I spent most of my time fascinated with the barn animals and let him do the fancy stuff, like black & white compositions and hopping past barriers to get spooky shots of abandoned mines.
