I wonder how many things we intently search for, training every last bit of energy focusing our gaze - only to be met with darkness. Then I think about the times peripheral vision catches a glimpse of something unintended, and off we go alit, into the beautiful, dim blue. "...the present is the most difficult period to apprehend; only with distance does the value of certain forms of photography and photo objects become clear." - Joel Smith, curator of photography at the Morgan Library & Museum,

Sometimes when visiting a new place surrounded by such emptiness there's a mild reservation about leaving the imagined security of whatever semblance of civilization there is - and striking alone into the void. With minimal maps and no idea what really lay out there I check the fuel gauge and tires, listen to the car carefully for any indication of malfunction and make sure a little food and water are close at hand.

A few weeks ago I needed to get out - as in far away from the computer - in a big way. The weather wasn't good along the Front Range and checking the iPhone confirmed pretty much any place within easy driving distance was experiencing the same. It looked like the only thing to do was out drive the front. I fueled up, stopped for the requisite Americano and headed into the rain not knowing [...]

4042n: Poudre Canyon, Cameron Pass, Jackson County, Rand, Walden

By |June 3rd, 2015|4042n, Destinations, F6, Film Photography, Geographic Interest|

Nothing hits the reset button like a road trip with a couple of old, film cameras - even if just for the day. On this day it was my favorite home away from home, North Park, Colorado. North Park is still "old Colorado" and I enjoy that immensely. North Park sits unassumingly, tucked quietly between the heavily traveled Steamboat corridor and Poudre Canyon. I've written about North Park quite a bit before - there's just [...]
