Randsburg, CA

We headed up to Randsburg CA today. It’s about 22 miles up the road from Ridgecrest but we had never been! Crazy huh? Randsburg is an old mining town, and was formed in 1895. They have a ton of old antique shops, saloons, and a general store. The weather is probably somewhere in the 60’s right now and it was perfect outside.

The picture above is an old train donated by the Butte Mine to Ransburg way back when.

This is an old press. I have no idea what they pressed with it but its massive.

Two old cars, love the texture on them.

We had lunch at the old Saloon, then went across the street to the General Store and got some Malts! Yum!

This was the painting above the bar at the General Store.

Ahaha, my little copy cat! Not the greatest picture but I wasnt expecting him to get on the floor like me. Haha!

Love it!

About the only time I can get a picture of him without him yelling at me. 🙂 He’s all tuckered out. 🙂

    Looks like you guys had an awesome time! I can’t wait for “non-rain” weather here in the Pacific Northwest so we can go out and play like this!

    I love rust, old buildings and the likes! There’s an old abandoned (ahem) “hospital” near where I live and love going out there to shoot. 😀

    It’s hard to say which photo I like the best. I would have to say it’s the one of Roman crawling on the floor, totally cracked me up!

    I WISH my boys would still fall asleep in the car after a busy outing! Not even my little one will do that anymore (he’ll be 3 this week). I LOVE your shot of the old sewing machine, so well composed, and the DOF is very good!

    Love them all. The one of Roman and his Daddy is special. He is a southpaw in that picture.

    Man, really hard to choose, but the sewing machine picture is amazing! The focus is stunning. I like the door, though, too. It made my eyes confused with the modern mixed with ancient….hehe

    Love these shots. Real hard to pick one that I really like. Love the texture on the first few shots.
