Helena | Montana | Color

Helena’s history is both rich (literally) and storied. There are so many layers – so many possible rabbit holes down which to tumble; it’s hard to know where to begin. Gold. Probably the gold. There was a lot of it at one time – in fact, at one point Helena was home to more millionairesContinue reading “Helena | Montana | Color”

Helena | Montana | BW

Getting to know Helena bit by bit… Last Chance Gulch Last Chance Gulch is the name of the actual gulch in which gold was discovered in 1864. The thoroughfare which was built down the Gulch was originally named Main Street. It remained that way for some 85 years, until July 20 1953, when acting HelenaContinue reading “Helena | Montana | BW”

Sun Setting on Denver

I took this last night with the Rollei – which is good; it’s snowing tonight and the city has crawled under its blanket until next year…

Bixby Creek Bridge and a bit of the Big Sur coastline – also found a mysterious, little passageway in Carmel. Taken with the Rollei.

If there’s a more beautiful state, I’ve yet to see it. TheseContinue reading “Sweet Home, Colorado”

Pastoral New Mexico

This might be the first image I took with the Rollei. I’ve driven by these two sagging barns 40 or 50 times; I absolutely love them and it tickled me to no end to make this simple picture.

Route 66 – New Mexico

These were among the first of the images I took with the Rollei. I sort of love the idea of photographing old things with my old camera. Established in 1926, Route 66 was one of the original highways in the US Highway System (Wiki). As a photographer, the dilapidated remains are interesting and beautiful inContinue reading “Route 66 – New Mexico”

More travels with my cellphone camera and my beloved sock monkey buddy, Pitou…
