In landscape, urbex, Utah by Robert Lussier1 Comment

I haven’t posted an image in a couple of days, but that is not from lack of desire. Since Monday night I have been dealing with some Adobe Lightroom issues. My catalog failed to load and couldn’t be repaired so I was forced to open a backup version. That would be a backup version that …

You may notice a new look to the blog today. I changed WordPress themes, did a little design refresh and some housekeeping. I still have a lot of work to do. I need to update my bio, organize and add galleries, and a few other things. But I think this is a pretty good start. …

Cisco

In 16-35mm f3.5, Travel, Utah by Robert Lussier1 Comment

The first official stop on the Utah NXNW trip was the the Ghost Town of Cisco, Utah. It was an interesting visit. Justin Balog, who helped orchestrate this trip, assured us that in all the times he’s shot Cisco, he has never seen any other photographers there. Yet when we pulled up to the town, …

I have come to the conclusion that I lack style. Not in the way I dress or carry myself … well … OK, that too, but that’s not the style I’m talking about. I’m talking about my photography. I feel I lack that distinctive style (whatever it is) that defines one’s work. A signature style. …

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 …

Ione’s Green House

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier7 Comments

This is probably my last post for a while so I wanted to go out strong. Here are a couple of images from the Green House (for lack of a better name) in Ione. It was another fascinating tour around and through one of Ione’s many ghost houses. A house that is very weak and …

The Green House in Ione

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

Today and tomorrow I’ll bring you a couple of shots from this house in Ione. It is a little more degraded than the one I showed you over the previous days, but I’m very happy with the images I got of it, starting with this one. I was probably more apprehensive about entering this one, …

Ione: Unfinished Business

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier4 Comments

Unlike Berlin in Nevada or Bodie in California (both of which are on my must shoot list), Ione is not a State Park. It is not a destination ghost town monitored and maintained by the State. Ione is more of a drive-through ghost town. “No Trespassing” signs were clearly displayed on most of the ghost buildings …

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 …

The House in Ione

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

Ione, Nevada’s story is typical of most — if not all — ghost towns. It started with a silver strike in 1863. By the spring of 1864 the town had 600 residents, a post office and over 100 buildings. A courthouse was built and it was destined to be the seat of Nye County — …
