Town of Ghosts

Awhile back, I posted about photographing ghost towns – specifically Kolmanskop, Namibia.  When we looked at photographing the town, we thought about whether it might look better in black and white – but that morning, the warm light made everything so orange, with the sand filling most of the buildings, we thought color made things look much better than in black and white.

Here’s a great video about another ghost town – a series of timelapses including night photography (which isn’t allowed in Kolmanskop, sadly) – where having the film in black and white makes all the difference. The choice of music makes it that much better.  Enjoy:
