I have recently discovered, thanks to Gabriel, the concept of "ghost towns." I live in North Texas where the oil boom made and broke towns. I am surrounded by ghost towns. How can I resist not going to see them through the lens of my camera? I cannot resist documenting their current state. Ronda has disappeared except for its cemetery and a sign or two welded onto wrought iron gates.
Grave from 1898.
A row of gravestones along a wheat field. As recently as 2009, the cemetery serves as a last resting place.
In the same field, I found two outhouses.
A roof once served the community.
