Spirits Vittles and Gas

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

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 …

Ione’s Green House

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 …

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, 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 — …
