I was in Terlingua in mid 1970's. A lot fewer people then. Stuff in the foreground is part of occupied areas in the Southwest. With few trees and no grass and bare yards, many places seemed much "messier" then in Midwest. A pristine occupied area is like shooting in Appalachia and avoiding the dead car in the front yard.

Oh, you are so right. I have shot in Appalachia and know exactly what you mean. Terlingua has changed a lot since the 1970s.. you really can no longer call it a ghost town as so many permanent residents have arrived over the years. I've even thought of buying a small plot of land putting up an adobe there myself. I love getting away from the city and the Big Bend area is still one of the places you can truly do that.
