Shaniko is a little town in Eastern Oregon that was once a major wool-producing hub, and then someone got bought off, and the railway moved, leaving behind sagebrush and rattlesnakes. Not many people there now, but there's a wealth of decaying buildings. It is, in short, a ghost town. A buddy and I traveled there last year on a lightly overcast day, which is not much for sightseeing but perfect for shooting detail, of which Shaniko abounds. This is from an abandoned barn...a taste of the real West.

Tech: Shot on Ilford Delta 100 with a Leica M3, souped in DDX, and printed on Ilford warmtone.
