There’s no hope and no changing me now … I can’t stop … finding new stories in old relics that is! Always loving the country and tales of a simpler time in American History I recall being attracted to like treasures at an early age. When traveling I’m always looking, and scanning the views left […]


Winter Relics

07Feb21

While making my rounds close to home, I couldn’t resist stopping to capture some familiar relics, now resting in the snow. In my view there is always a new image to be made when the subject has character and can tell a story. I also enjoyed stopping to photograph a couple of other subjects that […]


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 […]


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 […]


… And Lessons In Traction Control In my last post I wrote about some winter photography challenges here in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. We’ve been getting a good bit of snow this year and it has been just beautiful to look at. The morning after a good snow a few days ago, I decided to […]


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 […]

I didn’t realize how many photos with structures I’ve shot recently until I started reviewing my folders. I like to work my photography in stages … shooting mode, processing mode, then posting. Processing is often necessary to decide whether or not I like a particular image and if it’s worthy of showing on my blog. […]


Abandoned Utah

04Feb18

The West has its share of abandoned buildings, and cars too … usually leftovers from mining or pioneer days. Simply built and now weathered, many seem to be hanging by a thread and against all odds! I’ve already discovered many that are close to home, and within reach, so it’s always fun to look for […]


Proof Of Life

21Nov17

If you have been following my work you already know that photographing abandoned structures (and old things) is an obsession of mine! It’s been that way for a long time … since my photography beginnings. Today, many share the same interest whether photographing or exploring. One of the locations depicted here is the remains of […]


The following images feature old buildings that called to me along the way during the past few months. I like including the landscape along with the buildings to provide a sense of place (when it works). Other times, a closer look is needed … like the detail of an oven some miners left behind or […]
