A timeless scene, there must be some stories attached to this place. Lovely shot!

Well, yes. the little town of Bridgeport is near Bodie, one of the great ghost towns of the American West, active way back in the 1860s. When I was a kid in San Francisco (and that was way back in the 1930s) we were still galloping about on our imaginary horses. firing our imaginary six-shooters and yelling "I'm the Bad Man from Bodie!"

There's the story of the young woman who cried "Goodbye God, I'm going to Bodie." an apocryphal tale that the Bodie barflies soon edited to "Good, by God! I'm going to Bodie!"

Some day I'll tell you more.

Very nicely taken, it is indeed timeless and not very different from many outback scenes here.
