Friends and followers of this blog know I can’t go too long without posting images of old structures … shacks, cabins, barns and other mining and agriculture buildings. I just can’t resist these weathered characters! They seem to fit in with the land much more appropriately than new buildings while stirring the imagination of days […]

Finding a piece of history along the way is always a thrill for me. A ghost town with tales of hard times and murder was no exception. Fascinated, I went into over-drive … exploring, composing and shooting. Vehicles left behind and posed among the June grass, grabbed a lot of my attention. Here are some, […]


Two Visits

15Aug19

A town that once was called for two visits … one afternoon and one morning. I was drawn to a little weathered house sitting below some beautiful rolling hills, so I photographed it in changing light and from different angles. There were fences and ‘no trespassing’ signs that I did not want to violate so […]


Passing By Time

On a recent trip to Wyoming & South Dakota my friend and I found many old, weathered buildings and rusty relics. We even had the opportunity to explore some real ghost towns.

It has been a while since I’ve posted the weathered little structures found along the way. I’ve been all wrapped up in shooting and then processing my fall foliage images! This set shows several photos that document the finds and record their existence. They’ve been patiently waiting to be shared. Evoking all kinds of questions I […]


It’s happening all across America … cabins, shacks, barns and evidence of our heritage are disappearing! Made from natural materials they are returning to their beginnings, to end their stories in this world. I’ve learned to capture their existence when I see them. They may be gone before I’m there again. When I look around […]


Well … I’ve been at it again … roaming the countryside looking for something, anything, that speaks to me! This set combines some country charm with historic remains. Some of these images were shot on a fun group outing with two photo friends, and others on enjoyable solo adventures, wandering back roads. I thoroughly enjoy […]


A recent visit to an old mining ghost town gave me the opportunity to add to my Windows & Doors Gallery! I’ve written about the symbolic meaning of windows and doors before. Windows and doors belonging to old, weathered buildings act as portals to the past. For me, they offer a lot for the imagination […]
