Out in the desert.
Out in the desert.

Out there. Way out there.

The road trip. The grand tour. Mostly along Route 66. In New Mexico.

Or better said, by Neil Young:

“Well, they say that Santa Fe is less than ninety miles away,
And I got time to roll a number and rent a car.
Oh, Albuquerque.
I’ve been flyin’ down the road, and I’ve been starvin’ to be alone,
And independent from the scene that I’ve known.
Albuquerque.
So I’ll stop when I can, find some fried eggs and country ham.
I’ll find somewhere where they don’t care who I am.
Oh, Albuquerque, Albuquerque.”

I think these pictures get the same place. Isolation. Aloneness. Disconnectedness.

But, not in me.

After all the year is 2017. It’s all gonna get better. In a minute. So, they say. Me, I’m just exploring. And, in a few minutes I’m going to go explore New Orleans. In dense fog.

The pictures. These were once vibrant color works. Then I got to them. I changed everything. The mood. The tone. The feeling. I guess I’m auditioning for the film industry. Or not.

A quick stop on Route 66.
A quick stop on Route 66.
The edge of town.
The edge of town.

  1. As I understood correctly you shoot these photographs with film. Am I right? Do you still use film? These photos are beautiful beyond my imagination. Editing is absolutely outstanding and unique. Beginning to love Santa Fe because of your photographs and stories.

    1. I shot some on film and some on digital cameras. I still shoot a little film when I can. I even try to shoot it on commissions. But, that’s out of my pocket. If I can convince an art director to use it, good. 🙂
