Kodachrome

California Coast, Kodachrome 35mm slide film

I’ve been going through some old images for re-scan and really missing Kodachrome lately. I’ve also noticed how many more vertical images I made before the computer became the standard for viewing. Vertical images were desirable for publication covers. With 35mm film and a good reproduction they were the norm. These days, with the computer’s […]

Hope, Boundaries and Good Intuition

The Thumb, Monument Valley, Utah

I’ve devoted considerable thought over the past few years as to why we as people make photographs and frankly have come up blank. I don’t think I could explain to someone why I make photographs other than the simple truth; it pleases me to do so. It’s fun to read the plethora of great essays by […]

Fear and Loathing in Bushnell, Nebraska

Pine Bluffs, Nebraska

Pine (Bluffs), Wyoming lay at the extreme south-eastern corner of the state, a stone’s throw from Nebraska along the Old Lincoln Highway and I-80. My visit to Pine was late in the year with my dog Henry. Over the course of several months we’d seen Henry begin to slow and knew he’d begun his journey home. […]

Little Snake River Valley

Little Snake River Valley

The Little Snake River Valley sits along the Colorado/Wyoming state line and follows the Little Snake River as it tumbles out of the western flank of Colorado’s Park Range. The Little Snake is a tributary of the larger Yampa River, meandering westward in and out of Colorado and Wyoming then gradually makes its way south west to hook up with the Yampa west of Maybell and very close to Dinosaur National Park. Perhaps one of the best kept secrets in the state and home to several enormous ranches, Little Snake country is pure Colorado and way, way off the beaten path.

Opening Post

Soapstone Prairie Natural Area, Colorado

It’s very difficult to write well about an image. The power of the image is how it employs imagination; its ability to transport the viewer to a unique place or moment in time that – for all intents and purposes – is the sum of visual stimulus plus – the unique life experience belonging solely […]

Yesterday in Grover, Colorado

American Bison, Grover, Colorado

I’ve been wanting to visit Grover since discovering the small, prairie town hiding on a map a few months ago. Located in Eastern Colorado’s Weld County, Grover sits quietly off the more heavily traveled – but still inconspicuous – State Highway 14. If you find yourself in Grover it’s because you’ve chosen to be there. […]

Honesty

Blue Hour, Soapstone Prairie Open Space, Northern Colorado (Kodak Portra 160) I went on one of my 4042n jaunts last Saturday, this time to SoapStone Prairie Open Space, a relatively new area at the extreme edge of Colorado. You can cross into Wyoming on one of the short backcountry trails. Having decided the goal for […]
