Photographer's Note

This was taken at a ghost town called Gleeson, somewhere in Arizona.

From Wikipedia:
"Gleeson, Arizona is a ghost town located in Cochise County, Arizona, United States. The town lies on the eastern slopes of the Dragoon Mountains ten miles west of U.S. Route 191. Founded (Originally a camp named Turquoise after the mineral being mined in the area) in 1900 when John Gleeson registered a new mining claim and opened the Copper Belle Mine. The Gleeson post office, established on October 15, 1900, supported a town of about 500 people engaged primarily in copper mining, including veins of lead, silver and zinc. The Silver Belle, Brother Jonathan, Pejon and The Defiance were some of the other mines that followed in the surrounding areas."

I think the contrast of life and death in this photo is wonderful.
