Dance of the fireflies, originally uploaded by Nocturnal Bob.

"Some of these buildings have survived a century in these harsh elements, yet sadly their deterioration is accelerating due to vandalism. Hundreds of bullet holes litter the site. More alarmingly, some walls show signs of being knocked or kicked down recently. As if it wasn't difficult enough for this tired old structure to stay standing, someone has placed several large rocks on the roof as if to increase its already heavy burden.

This abandoned mine was my favorite location during the entire trip. After dark it takes on an almost magical quality. Hopefully I can capture whats remains before nature and man take their toll.

(9 minute exposure + colored flashlights + gelled flash)"
