Kamp Two Guns

Old Campground at Two Guns Arizona

This is another image from our April 2nd trip to northern Arizona when we hit up the ghost town of Two Guns in the morning, then Grand Falls in the afternoon.

Two Guns was very close to this structure, but we’re confident it came well after that old town disappeared. “Kamp” used to be an old RV campground and you could still see the areas where those vehicles would park for the night. This building had restrooms in it and might have been the check-in office for the entire place. Now it’s a mess, with a lot of graffiti all over the walls, floors, ceiling and even a nearby empty swimming pool.

As I’ve said before, I love the clouds up in northern Arizona and we definitely got lucky on this day to have them aplenty.

    Great moody shot man. I find it amazing at the places you manage to find buildings, especially in areas that look so desolate. Great work man!

    Exactly what you said, those clouds make the shot, but I also really like your conversion on this one. Well done bud.

    Great shot! I wanted to do some compositions from outside the buildings, but we didn’t get lucky and have a good sky day like this (aka blue skies all around).

    Too bad that they misspelled camp. Kind of embarrassing…

    Hi Mike, The sky looks awesome! I share your love of those Arizona Clouds!

    Its like you used the cloud formation as a leading line to the structure. Fantastic work.

    Interesting composition that seems to be made up of triangles – the clouds lead the eye to the building very nicely and the mono works a treat.

    These are the shots you do best Mike. Beautiful clouds, amazing vanishing points on the horizon, and the contrast in black and white great.

    I really like the sky, but the entire image is terrific. Black & white is the perfect choice.
