There are some places you visit that inspire questions in you. No matter how many historical placards you come across, informative flyers or quick google searches you do, the questions remain and you wish you could have a little more time to explore.

Trinidad was never meant to be any kind of stop for us, just somewhere to fuel up before heading into the mountains towards our final destination, South Fork. But the sun was coming up and casting light over unfamiliar buildings and empty streets and even though I had been awake all night at that point doing a slightly grueling 12 hour drive, I had to stop and take a look around. I remember it was slightly chilly, the streets were completely empty, and it was like something out of a fairytale almost.

    Interesting series. I think it is a too bad that so many theaters in small towns close. That might have been an interesting marquee to shoot at dusk with their lights on.

      Thank you!
      I would like to think that it was really only closed temporarily, and maybe when I go back one day it’ll be a shot I can take at night :)

    That does look like the best lighting ever.

    Loved this blog post and hope you don’t mind me reflagging it:) It sounds like something out of a book or a movie. Your photos have given me some ideas.
