Shakespeare, Clouds, 1997. Shakespeare, New Mexico.
Shakespeare is one of my favorite ghost towns to photograph. Although very small, it contains several buildings held in a state of "arrested decay" by the caretakers who live on the property. I first photographed Shakespeare for my book Ghost Towns Of The Old West (Mallard Press, 1990) in color, but then returned again several years later to do some serious black & white work. The caretakers were kind enough to allow me access to a number of the buildings. Throughout the afternoon hours, a storm was slowly approaching, led by these sweeping clouds, emphasizing the exciting skies of the American West.
