Before Dawn

In 50mm 1.4, nevada by Robert Lussier1 Comment

I think I need to go back to central Nevada to do more shooting. Since my original trip in 2012 I find myself contemplating the things I would do differently or lamenting the opportunities I missed — like not shooting the ghost  town of Berlin because I got lost! But until I pull the trigger on that trip I have …

Antiques

In 14mm f2.8, nevada by Robert Lussier1 Comment

On my my last visit (which I hope won’t be my last visit) to Austin, Nevada I walked the short mile or so up and down main street shooting the buildings. Most of those shots were fairly mundane. After a cursory pass through the resulting, I pretty much moved on to more exciting images. So I was thrilled to find …

Stable Window

In 14mm f2.8, nevada by Robert Lussier0 Comments

Between this winter that will not end, my work schedule, training for the Boston Marathon and helping to prepare for my oldest son’s wedding coming up at the end of April, I have not had many opportunities to get out and shoot. So the “photography time” I have available has been spent in going through my Lightroom archives – something …

Home is Where the Heart Is

It has been over about a week since I’ve posted anything here (bless me father, for I have sinned). Or on Facebook. Or GooglePlus. The primary reason is illness — I had been down for the count for most of that time with the flu, or something like it. But even in moments of lucidity, other things got in the …

Somewhere in Nevada

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier3 Comments

This was shot somewhere in Nevada along Route 50 in April of 2012. It’s one of those road shots you have to get when you are driving on a lonely highway. When you can see miles in front of you and miles behind you and you realize you are the only person within sight. If you are from a congested …

The Watcher

I guess I’ll keep going with the Black and White images for the rest of the week. This one is from April of 2012 in Nevada. I was driving along Route 50 (The Loneliest Road in America) when this gigantic concrete form sitting on the side of the road caught my eye. I pulled over to grab a shot before …

Bird on a Wire

In landscape, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier3 Comments

I thoroughly enjoy going through old images to find new ones. By new, I mean old images that were overlooked the first time through. Got it? Good. This is one such image. I shot this barn at the Hess Ranch in Central Nevada at a couple of different focal lengths. And yes, I boldly changed lenses in the middle of the …

Magic Bus

In nevada, Travel, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier3 Comments

A couple more shots from this abandoned homestead in Nevada. Above, the front of the bus was too delicious to ignore. Such grunge so perfectly, symmetrically, deliciously enticing. Below, about a years worth of discarded tin cans around what appeared to be a fire pit.

Manhattan Homestead

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

While exploring the semi-ghost town of Manhattan, NV in the spring of 2012 I got a bit disoriented. I made a wrong turn and found myself driving towards what appeared someone’s home. A trailer home. I really didn’t want to trespass so I started looking for a place to turn around. Fortunately, I couldn’t find a convenient spot until I …
