Bodie Interiors #3

The funeral home, it sucks everyone in and why not, it’s just bloody cool. This is child casket and as you saw in yesterday posting, children died in Bodie. Now the location of the funeral home on the corner of Green and Main, thats always been an intersting question. When i talked to mu mom about it, she said there was no funeral home next door to where they ate lunch. When I asked Lester Bell, he just raised his eyebrows and smirked so you figure it out. The lighting is pretty basic, it’s the diffusion flat on the outside. Its simple, effective and predictable and that’s perfect.

One question I always get asked is, “Our there ghosts in Bodie?” I’ve heard a ton a stories about ghosts from China Rose to the one armed mill worker. Bodie is ghost town, it’s on the website so if the government says it’s a ghost town, there must be ghost. Are there ghosts in the cemetery or the funeral home? I have no comment.
