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 …

Home is Where the Heart Is

It has been over about a week since I’ve posted anything here (bless me father, for I have sinned). Or on Facebook. Or GooglePlus. The primary reason is illness — I had been down for the count for most of that time with the flu, or something like it. But even in moments of lucidity, …

Sand Mountain

In 80-200mm f2.8, landscape, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier4 Comments

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 …

Manhattan Storage

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

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 …

Austin Nevada Mercantile and Drygoods

In 24mm PC-E, nevada, Vintage by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

My first hour or so in Austin last spring was spent walking up and down Main Street, taking in it’s charm with my camera. It was an exercise I repeated  a couple of times during my stay. The town has a wonderful old west feel to it. It’s rich history can be felt from International to the “Austin …

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

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier6 Comments

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, …

Golden Club

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

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 …
