New York by Gehry

In 80-200mm f2.8, architecture, Cityscape by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Here is a shot of the tallest residential towers in the Americas — New York by Gehry. The towers were designed by Frank Gehry, probably the most acclaimed architect of our time. The building is located at 8 Spruce, not far from Ground Zero and the nearly finished Freedom Tower. It is a dominant element in …

Pemberton Redux

In 80-200mm f2.8, industrial, lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Here is a reboot of an old shot of the storied Pemberton Mill in Lawrence. I came across it last night and decided to see what I could do with it using onOne Software’s Perfect B&W. Yup, I said “Perfect B&W.” As in “Black and White.” After applying my tone, color response and other adjustments …

Sand Mountain

It can be just a blur as you cruise along Rte 50 outside of Fallon, Nevada at 70, 80 or 100 MPH. But if you are paying attention, Sand Mountain is something to stop and check out. It is a mountain made of sand, whose profile constantly changes with the wind.  It is also the …

A quick post for this 4th of July Holiday. I could post an old fireworks shot to help us celebrate our nation’s birth or maybe find a shot of flags, but I think this will do. Not a symbol of freedom, but a reminder of what has kept us free. These dog tags are part …

Stokes Castle Blue

Thought I’d start of the week with the other shot featured in the current print edition of Nevada Magazine.  I posted a page over the weekend with the other image — Rolling into Austin — and a link to my SmugMug gallery where you can buy any of my Nevada Images. This is Stokes Castle, …

The Front of the House in Ione

In 14mm f2.8, 80-200mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier3 Comments

I probably should have posted this one first. It is the same house I posted an image of yesterday, but from the front. I shot it from the road with a long lens. Through my D700’s viewfinder I noticed the missing window panes. Since the house was only a few yards away, I decided to switch …

Hess Ranch Doors

Today’s image of the Hess ranch is a simple detail shot of one of the out buildings. As a photographer/artist, sometimes I just look for patterns and shapes. In this case, I think these shapes help to paint a picture of the ranch as a whole. I have become intrigued with the story of this …

Little Church, Big City

In 80-200mm f2.8, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier3 Comments

OK, so technically, it is a little church in a little town with a big city name. Up a big hill. Manhattan, Nevada was originally founded in 1867 as part of the silver mining boom and then, in 1905, as part of the gold boom when 4,000 people poured into the region to try to strike …

St Augustine’s

Another shot from high above Austin, Nevada. The church was built in 1866, making it the oldest in Nevada. It opened in time for the Christmas midnight mass that year. A fee was charged for seats in order to help pay for the roof. The bricks used for the 20 inch thick walls were fired …
