Bodie House - possibly Conway House

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 16 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural.

This may have been the house of Bob Conway who owned a freight business in town - Tomorrow we will have an image of a residence interior but I am NOT going to venture a guess as to whose residence - not after MY history.
ANd then the day after tomorrow will be tha last Bodie shot but it is a transitional image - not of a structure....cheers!

Once again a beautifully framed shot Denny! Don't worry about making mistakes, it goes with the game. Well done! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Hi Eric Thank you very much! Yes and as we get older the mistakes seem to occur with greater frequency and volume..ah well this is still fun stuff!!

Becky from los angeles, United States

I could live in this. : ) No kidding. It looks so serene. Nice shot.

@Becky: So could my wife and I - but the torn curtains in the front door would have to be replaced, then some plants and trees, and, oh yes, more bushes on the sides, and then......:-)

Julie from Easton, United States

This shot is priceless!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A distant relative of Tim's, I suppose. :-) Interesting railing that they made using picket fence sections. Your processing here is very good and even resembles HDR.

@Steven: Hi Steven and thank you very much. In 2006 when this was grabbed,I had no clue wht HDR was - in fact I am still not sure I know what it is now - And as for the Tim Conway reference, it could be correct .....Tim seemed to almost "carry" the Carol Burnett show many nights (no offense to the rest of that fantastic cast) much likt this Mr Conway caried freight. Oh well - Thanks Steven

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

Outstanding detail.

@john4jack: Hi Jack - thank you very much - that little camera I used back then really did have some quality images coming out of it, despite the guy behind the shutter.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Another super shot of the houses in this old place, if only the walls could talk I am sure they would have so many stories

17 Jul 2010 2:07am

@JJ: Stories galore I am sure - thanks for dropping by JJ - Like the Mystic seaport series (which I have loved) this series is about to end as well we will be off down the road to the White Mountains of California and the Ancient Bristlecone Pines.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A snug little house. I like that weathered wood.
