Doll Arm, Newspaper, Dust. Bodie, California. October 16, 2010. © Copyright 2010 Steven Tze – all rights reserved.
Photograph was taken on my first and, thus far, only visit to Bodie State Park in Mono County in the Eastern Sierras. Bodie is a photographer’s paradise that appeals to different types of photographers as the entire town is in a state of “arrested decay”. I went into my archives to pull up this picture after seeing a post on Tim Messick’s blog last night. What caught my attention was the headline on the newspaper “Huskies Defeat Bruins”. Being a Bruin alum, the losing part wasn’t what caught my attention (as it happens often these days), it was the fact I didn’t recall the headline at all.
Here’s what’s also interesting. Not only do I have a photo of the inside of the same building, it looks as though the arrangement of items had changed since I took the picture last October and when Tim took his picture this October. Does someone from the State Park Service go in a move things around? While the focus of my picture is the doll arm, you can barely see the arm in Tim’s picture.
