Phun Phriday - Calico Ghost Town




Bottle House

Becky says she's been to Calico and remembered the bottle house and Sandra requested more photos of the town, so this post fits both.

Robin said...

What do they say about glass houses?
Oh yeah, you have to dress in the basement!
Like the shots!

I can see why that is such a small house, that would be a lot of work. Very interesting idea. I wonder what it is like in there on a bright sunny day. Hot??? and I guess pretty bright. If it is well lit inside at night that would make a very interesting photo, or even some candles on a long exposure. Hmmmmmm? That was a lot of Phun to imagine all those things.

Sandra said...

thank you. i was sitting here starting at the house trying to figure out what it was made from, and what a shock when I scrolled down. old bottles. now this is the ultimate recycled home. LOVE IT and i see My Kind Of Town peaking out from beside it. i would love to see all of this but this is for sure next best.

The bottle house is wild! And what an amazing picture of the toothless cowboy! Yes, you've done your magic again! You've even made a toothless person look good! I'm back from sick leave and missed you!

I wonder which was more fun: building the house or drinking all that wine?

What a unique place to photograph. And the "character" photos earlier are priceless.

Wonderful photos, colors and light. I have not been to Calico Ghost Town in MANY years. Seems they have changed it some, and sparks my interest. Wouldn't it be great to have a little bottle cabin to retreat to?! I will definitely be back.

Color, light, and high interest! Wow. Nice job Karen. I have not been to Calico Ghost Town in many years. I suppose they made some changes to enhance visitors and I can see why. I do not remember the bottle house. Wouldn't it be great to have a little cabin made out of bottles to retreat to? Great post Karen, and I will be back for sure...

What a great idea!
I wonder if it gets as warm as a glasshouse inside!?

Linda Robinson said...

WOW! This shot brings back memories. I have seen this house when I was a little girl, my parents have photos of it.. Of course yours is alot better. I am only about 3 hours away from Calico, I shot take a little trip..

Thank You!

Tricia said...

WoW! I didn't think it could be done, I would have thought the bottles would break!

I love that 2nd story 'HOTEL' sign & the old west wood railing, that's AWESOME!
