Great Light is Great Light (you know it when you see it).

because this is, after all, a journal... (I don't know why the image above is cropped like that... kinda drives me nuts. Below is what it should look like). Eldorado Springs, Boulder County, Colorado Saturday - out driving around literally all day, looking for a photograph. I went to Denver to pick up some more Delta 100 at Denver Pro Photo. Leroy said he'd hold a 10-pack for me earlier in the week [...]

Yuma County Grain

By |June 20th, 2017|4042n, Road Trippin'|

For whatever reason I'm drawn to the the less popular; the rag-tag, rumpled, untucked misfits of the world. Not as some sort of contrarian act - but more in a search for intrinsic worth. In all things. Acknowledgement of  life's many, many dimensions. Yuma County Grain One of my favorite things to do is head East, towards the less notable portions of this glorious state of Colorado. I don't know if it's out [...]

Covering Country: 4042N, Year 8

By |March 28th, 2017|4042n, Believeinfilm, black and white film, Film Photography, Geographic Interest, Road Trippin', Wyoming|

I realized something of great importance this past Saturday while traveling Iron Mountain Road in Wyoming: I love Wyoming. I love it the way you love something you didn't realize you loved at first. The way some things kinda sneak up on you when you're not looking then bam - there they are and you wonder how long this has been going on. I love Colorado too, but Colorado's easy to love. Everyone loves Colorado. Wyoming's [...]

Boulder, Colorado

By |February 20th, 2017|Boulder, Colorado, Medium Format, Road Trippin'|

Often times when you head out for the day along Colorado's Front Range you simply don't know what the day holds. That's one of the reasons it's such fun: that unexpected surprise emerging when you think you're looking for one thing - and another takes you completely off guard. Such was the case on this day. Fort Collins was shrouded in cold, gray fog.  There was really no hint of redemption - just unrelenting grayness. [...]

I have had the privilege of living in Colorado since 1981 when I moved to Fort Collins to attend Colorado State University. Having moved from Illinois, I'd literally do anything to get into the mountains. At first a poor college student with no car, I once borrowed a friend's bike - two sizes too large - to pedal up Thompson Canyon from Fort Collins, backpack with ice axe and all. I remember a sleek, streamlined peloton of [...]

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 [...]
