10th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Kitchen in abandoned home in Bodie, CA. Nikon D200, Tokina 12-24mm lens

A thick layer of dust covers this abandoned kitchen in Bodie, California, captured with a Nikon D200. “The compelling part of the photo for me was the normalcy of the setting contrasted with the obvious time that has lapsed,” says the photographer. “It is important to me because I love to find beauty in age, and I found it that day.”
