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 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 hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, or Hanukkah (or whatever you celebrate) and are geared up for a fantastic New Year. I look forward to this post every year. It is an opportunity to look back on my work, reflect on where I’ve been (literally and figuratively) and ponder the upcoming year. I actually picked …

Golden Club

Happy Friday. The Golden Club is one of four drinking establishments in Austin, Nevada (about as many churches too). Not bad for a town of  a couple hundred people.  Like the International, The Golden Club’s bar was transplanted from England in the later part of the 19th century — beautifully maintained, but not photographed by …

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 Stable at Hess Ranch

Bea (Walsh) Bible told me of the similarities between the construction of the buildings on the ranch and those found in Patrick Walsh’s birth home, Bantry Bay, Ireland. This stable is a good example. It is easy to walk among these old structures and visualize not just a different time, but a different place. While …

The International

In nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier5 Comments

The International Hotel is the oldest hotel in Nevada and one of the oldest in the west. It was high on my list of things to shoot on this trip. Back in 2004, when I first visited Austin on TREK USA, my teammate Tom and I popped into the bar for a beer. We were completely …

Welcome to Austin

  My first visit to Austin, Nevada was 8 years ago, almost to the day. It was our destination on the third day of the TREK Relay. After the 10 of us ran almost 200 miles collectively, Austin provided us with a hot meal, a warm bed and cold beer (not necessarily in that order). …

Hello Austin, Nevada!

  This will probably be my last post until late next week. I’m heading out to the Austin, Nevada area for a few days of desert shooting. It is a small town in the middle of nowhere on the Loneliest Road in America (Route 50). I’ve been enamored with the area ever since I stayed …
