The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

A strange little town of only a few families, New Idria made EPA's National Priority List due to its former mercury mining operation, second largest in the country at one time. Several abandoned building still stands today. This image was once a school room which typifies the lonely nature of the place. I also enjoy the numerous geometric lines throughout the image.
