I have lived here for almost two years. I have had my awesome camera for almost one. Yesterday I finally got to do my first shoot of this very photogenic town. Alone, I might add. Which is why its taken so long. I haven’t been alone for all this time. It was fun, but I feel like I could spend days and thousands of pictures trying to capture all that Bisbee is.
It’s an old mining town with a million stories and hundreds of really neat run-down buildings. Filled with people of art, country, city, and just about every belief and practice you can imagine. Being close to the border, it’s swelling with tradition and culture. Then there are the moderns, the naturals, and most assuredly, the locals that have lived here their whole lives. It’s unique, weird, cool, pretty, and truly quiet and slow-paced. It’s our home.
