Abandoned by Nullibicity Abandoned by Nullibicity
So this is a few miles before Custer (If I have the town name correct), which is a popular ghost town.

It was really creepy here even when surrounded by beauty. It was also very sad. These houses and Custer have been abandoned for more than 50 years.

I thought it was, yes! However I sort of felt bad for taking pictures of someone's memories... I know that may not make sense but I almost felt as if I were disrespecting the place. It was pretty though, but I also found it sad that something was abandoned like that :|

may I ask you..what's the story of this place?

I'm not too informed myself, but I can try. It's basically a part of a town called Custer, but this section was more on the outskirts all by its lonesome. The town was pretty old, though I'm not sure the exact age, and as I understood underwent many avalanches. There were a lot of graves for people who had died in those. It was then abandoned over 50 years ago and is now owned by someone. I would have gone inside (though I felt as if I was already disrespecting the memories of those who had lived there just by taking pictures) but since it was privately owned it asked that we didn't go in. However there was really no one there to watch, but I don't like breaking the rules that much. Especially when it comes down to laws. Custer itself is just a small community that they've preserved and turned into a sort of museum, but the only thing man had changed about this place (the one photographed) was a tiny spot of land where they put the sign that asked us to just look and not touch/enter the houses. Is that a good enough explanation for you? Sorry I would say more about it but I didn't know very much from the start.

Yes, I had a hard time going close to the doors or windows to take other shots (unfortunately I don't see them as good enough to post). I felt disrespectful but it was also like a scene from a horror movie: Sally gets too close to the house and BAM! She's dead. I'm just really paranoid when it comes to abandoned stuff, but I pulled it together for these shots; I've always wanted to photograph a ghost town :)
