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 …

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 …

Spirits Vittles and Gas

I ask you, how often do you get to post an image with the word “Vittles” in it? In this case, maybe twice, because I am not sure if I have published this one before. If I did, it was the color version with a slightly different crop so — technically — this is a …

The Ranch at Grass Valley: Stable II

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Here is another shot of the inside of the stable at the ranch. I’ll be wrapping up the series tomorrow with what might be my favorite shot from the ranch. Although, it is hard to choose. I have a couple more images from this fantastic find that will make their way to the blog in …

The Ranch at Grass Valley: The Bunk House

I couldn’t post one of these images without posting the other. They just go together and help tell the story so well. The bench outside the building was the first clue. When I went inside and saw the heater / stove in one corner and the remnants of a bed (not seen here) in another, I …

Route 50 Connected

In landscape, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier4 Comments

Route 50 in Nevada, between Fallon and Austin, is one of the most desolate stretches of road I’ve ever driven. Or run. Both, really. Actually, it is THE most desolate stretch of road I’ve covered. But that’s not saying much really. I haven’t traveled extensively. Still I love the stark beauty of the desert and, …

The Barn at Hess Ranch

In 50mm 1.4, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

I shot this little barn from a couple of angles but this was my favorite. I loved the context that the mountains in the background and the two wired give the image. It is isolated, but connected. The Hess Ranch is located along a long stretch of a long dirt road. I did a lot …

The Loneliest Road in America

In 14mm f2.8, Travel by Robert Lussier8 Comments

  I have more images from Reno but for the next few posts I’m going to give an overview of my Nevada trip. Just a sampling of the various places I visited. Then I’ll get into some detail about each place as we get deeper into the images. Let me know if you get bored. …

Hello Austin, Nevada!

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier4 Comments

  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 …
