Elk at Dusk

This shot was taken near Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 2013.  I wish I could say it was real. It is my photograph; I took the picture, all right.  The sky is real, the site is real, but the elk are statues.  This was taken near the entrance of an art museum in the area. I … Continue reading Elk at Dusk

Retired

I found this old Ford pickup in a field near Jackson, Wyoming,  just sitting there like it was put out to pasture.   Long past its prime, it was set aside to take it easy and reminisce about days of hard work and accomplishments earned with youthful energy. Although rusted and weathered, the body looked pretty solid. … Continue reading Retired

Waiting

How long should I wait?  That's what I saw in this old truck's expression found behind the old house in central Wyoming.  I wrote about this abandoned homestead in a previous blog. The Chevy farm truck looked like it had sat there since Prohibition.  In movies about the Roaring 20's, there were always trucks like this with … Continue reading Waiting

Model Home

I found this photo op in Central Wyoming, along US 191 on my way to Jackson Hole last month.  The abandoned homestead looked like it was a picture of prosperity in its prime, which had to be several decades past.  The main house, a large barn, this log cabin and several other out-buildings were surrounded … Continue reading Model Home

Mrs. Bullwinkle

A Kodak moment always comes when you least expect it.  Recently, I was strolling the streets of Teton Pines near Jackson, Wyoming when a Kodak moment hit me upside my head.  It had finally stopped raining, and I needed some fresh air, so I grabbed my security blanket (camera) and began exploring the neighborhood. About … Continue reading Mrs. Bullwinkle

So-So Fall Colors

No, the image is not upside down.  The shoreline is near the top of the photo, and the foreground is all reflection.  The lack of evergreens on the shoreline robs the scene of any contrasting color leaving too much of yellow ... rather boring, actually. Taking advantage of the only 30 minutes of sunshine I … Continue reading So-So Fall Colors

Jackson Hole

I just got back from four days in Jackson, Wyoming, where the majestic Grand Tetons come shooting out of the earth, building a jagged wall around the flat lands to create a bowl called Jackson Hole.  The weather was not ideal. The peaks of the Grand Tetons were rarely visible, and when they were, the … Continue reading Jackson Hole

Honest Trucker

Admittedly, this photo will not win any photo contests.  C'mon, I was buzzing down the interstate at 80 mph in western Wyoming when I came upon this truck.  Not the best shooting conditions, so cut me some slack.  When I realized what the sign was telling me, I was already even with the truck and … Continue reading Honest Trucker
