Wk49(2017) Abandoned Garage

One the way home from our trip to Sioux Falls this November, we headed south thru western Nebraska. I’d driven by this abandoned garage in Bridgeport Nebraska numerous times, but not stopped to photograph it because of weather or the light was poor. This day we caught it with low late afternoon sun and decided…

Back in the middle of November of 2017, the wife went to Sioux Falls South Dakota for work. I tagged along to make some photographs. One of the more interesting places to photograph in the city is the Falls Park. I shot almost two rolls there, over two days. The shots for this week are…

Wk44(2017) Dia de los Muertos

Every year for the past few years, the Denver Botanic Gardens holds a celebration of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the dead. This year, I mostly shot Kodak Portra at the festival. Those images can be found in my week 40 post. I started the day with half the roll already exposed. Those…

Well after a long absence I’m back. This winter I just burned out on developing an scanning. So after a couple of months break, I developed my backlog of film from 2017 and this last weekend scanned everything. Today’s post is roll 43 plus a half. I wanted to keep all of the images of…

This roll of Portra 400 was shot in the area around Wall SD. We visited the Minuteman Missile silo national monument and the Badlands national park.

Wk 41(2017) Carhenge

“Carhenge was conceived in 1987 by Jim Reinders as a memorial to his father. While living in England, he studied the structure of Stonehenge, which helped him to copy the structure’s shape, proportions, and size. Other automobile sculptures were subsequently added to the location of Carhenge, which is now known as the Car Art Reserve.”…

Wk 38(2017) Georgetown loop railroad

We would pass it on the interstate every time we head into the mountains, and have even photographed the engines refilling with water in Silver Plume. So this year we had some free tickets that were going to…
