Holgaroid - Ghost Town Series - Alberta Badlands - #3

Rowley Community Center by Tiffany Teske

Even though the town only has 6 residents, the Rowley Community Center is still in use today. The first Saturday of each month this ghost town hosts a pizza dinner which draws people from everywhere who want to check out the inside of the buildings.

Holgaroid - Ghost Town Series - Alberta Badlands

Dead Fox by Tiffany Teske

It has been awhile since I posted any Holgaroid images. In June, my family and I borrowed a friend's RV and went on a little road trip to the Badlands of Alberta. We went on the same trip about three years ago, when our first daughter was the same age that our second daughter now is. I am very interested in ghost towns. A lot of my photography work deals with decay, abandoned places, memory, stories of ghosts... ghost towns appeal to me. This area has many of them. My favorite is Rowley. Going back to Rowley is something I have been waiting to do since we got home from the last trip. I will write some thoughts on what it was like to return in coming posts. We also went to Dorothy for the first time. Come road trippin' in Ghostville with me...
