Long Exposure Photograph of an abandoned set of steps that possible lead up to an old school house in the ghost town of Sims, ND. Sims, ND was quite the booming place in the late 1800s, noted for an abundance of spring water and coal mining, surveyed by the Northern Pacific Railroad, and home to a few general stores, a 3-story hotel, a two-room public school, real estate offices, and brick factory. But the original population of 1000 people dwindled quickly to just 86 people in 1910 after the NPRR company had abandoned the tracks through the town. We stood at the tops of these steps for about 30 seconds or so to let the full moon expose us. After stepping down from the stairs, the camera shutter remained open for another couple minutes to expose the landscape, which “erased” our forms leaving the ghosted image of us behind.
