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 […]


Old windows and doors have been a favorite and recurring theme since starting my photographic journey years ago. They are popular subjects among many of my photog friends as well. For me they can hold a mystery about what is on the other side. A reflection, often distorted can have a playful and sometimes magical quality. Traditional […]


Classic Relics

Here are some images shot in an antique car lot not too far from home. The cars are lined up close to one another and their surroundings leave a little to be desired when it comes to picture-making. I decided to forgo my tripod and shoot more freely getting in close with my seldom used […]


I have been saving the images displayed here over the past few months since they didn’t really fit with the subject matter of recent posts. Additions to my growing collection titled ‘Remnants & Remains’, I’ve selected a few to upload to my online gallery and store. I am grateful for the opportunity to showcase prints […]


Needing to get out with my camera I went for a drive one cloudy day last week. I meandered the back roads and came upon an area that had an assortment of old looking shacks and cabins. It was a fun day of scouting and for me, the cloudy weather suited the subject matter. No […]


The worn, weathered and abandoned are among my favorite and most blogged about subjects … as many of you know. These subjects have always held a deep fascination for me as I imagine their past. Speaking about a way of life our ancestors knew, they hold a special charm as they gracefully age. And photographing […]


I was out doing errands recently and spotted an old house in the distance that I had never noticed before. I drove a little closer to investigate and saw that it was abandoned and on private property behind a large historic home. I was about to write down the address when the owner drove up […]


When I visit a location my first response is to shoot the obvious, big picture. Once I’m satisfied that I’ve ‘got it’ I try to remember to move in to capture some of the details as well. I guess we could call these detail shots ‘found still-lifes’. When the subjects are weathered, worn, rusty and […]


Forsaken Farm

04Aug12

In my last post I talked about exploring new ideas while continuing to shoot my usual subjects. That certainly includes my love for old barns. I often say in jest that I could make an abandoned barn, coffee table book. On a recent trip and early morning shoot I captured this barn that begged to […]
