The Ghost of Super Soul

The Ghost of Super Soul

The front porch of the massive Goldfield Hotel in Goldfield Nevada, where champagne supposedly flowed down these steps at the 1908 grand opening.  It’s been closed  to guests since WWII.  Fascinating history about this place, it’s amazing it’s still standing, frankly.  Shot at night during Goldfield Days festival last week, while everyone was partying a block away.  I’d love to do more inside, in case the current owner’s listening!  White flashlight combined with a little local ambient light.

Close up of the tile work. You can see with these how they keep the basement and first floor lights on to keep the weirdos out.  Ambient light with red and blue flashlight.
