"Sentinel" - 2010

Was wandering around an old mining camp / ghost town in the far east
valley of Phoenix and spotted this rusting bolt on some kind of old mining device.

2020 Update: Sadly, the owners of that property have invested a considerable amount
of time cleaning it up in an effort to attract tourists — removing a lot of the old mining equipment
and vehicles and so on — but in my opinion — it is losing its authentic flavor.

People are obviously free to do as they wish with the property they own —
but now, what was once a taste of another era, feels more manufactured....
