Belmont


I’m winding up the week with a tight panorama shot of Belmont, Nevada (and one of my personal favorites from the trip).

On the far left is the “House of Tasker Oddie circa 1870.” I know that because, like many of the buildings in Belmont, theere is a properly placed historic marker in front of the structure.

Tasker Oddie was the 12th Governor of Nevada and a United States Senator. At least that’s what I learned from Wikipedia.

You can see a bigger version by clicking on the image, and an even bigger version by clicking here.

I have more images from Belmont and Manhattan, which I will be sure to post at a later date, but I’m going to change gears a bit next week.

I’m going to start posting images from one of the two abandoned / vacant ranches I shot in the Austin, Nevada area.

  1. I love your work, Bob, I know I’ve said that sometime before…. but, really, this is incredible. I love how there isn’t a straight line to be found within miles of this great place. In the Webster’s dictionary, this picture should sit beside the word “character”.
