Deadwood in B&W

January 12, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

I have photographed several National Historic Landmarks. What made Deadwood so exciting is that the entire town was designated as a National Historic Landmark for its well-preserved collection of late 19th century frontier architecture!

1- Fairmont Hotel

8- I don't want to turn this into a political post! But, a couple of the T-shirt shops definitely tried to stir the pot. T-shirts with a "stolen White House", extremely disturbing vulgarities toward Vice President Harris, "Biden Looney Tunes", Trump with his middle finger raised, etc. For retail stores, they definitely weren't trying to appeal to everyone!

A couple of other notes regarding my travels...

I stayed at the Hampton Inn on Main Street. This allowed me to walk to all of these locations at my convenience and to try to time the shots for the best possible lighting and with minimal crowds. During the offseason, the Hampton Inn was just $39 per night! The night after I left, the price went of to $215. The Hampton Inn is attached to a casino. I'm not much of a gambler, but they gave me $15 of "free play" when I checked in. I ran the free play through a slot machine and pulled $11 out of the machine. I then cashed out!
