Bodie is a 19th century gold mining ghost town in the arid hills east of the Sierra Nevada.

These days it’s a State Historic Park and, despite the remote location at the end of a long dirt road, it’s a reasonably popular tourist spot — especially for photographers.

Li-Kim Chuah sent in several images, but this I think is the most successful because it isn’t your usual tourist snapshot.

The reflection conveys a sense of the setting, while the old objects behind the glass create a distinct visual layer that gives the picture an intriguing ghostly depth.
