Stable Window

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

Between this winter that will not end, my work schedule, training for the Boston Marathon and helping to prepare for my oldest son’s wedding coming up at the end of April, I have not had many opportunities to get out and shoot. So the “photography time” I have available has been spent in going through …

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 …

The Ranch at Grass Valley: Storage

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

Happy Friday, everyone. By a slim margin, this is my favorite shot from the Ranch at Grass Valley. It conveys the feeling I had when I first saw the ranch — a cluster of decaying buildings in a sea of sagebrush. Whoever last owned this ranch can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe …

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 …

The Stable at Hess Ranch

In 50mm 1.4, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier3 Comments

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 …

Hess Ranch Doors

Today’s image of the Hess ranch is a simple detail shot of one of the out buildings. As a photographer/artist, sometimes I just look for patterns and shapes. In this case, I think these shapes help to paint a picture of the ranch as a whole. I have become intrigued with the story of this …

Slaughterhouse

In 20mm f2.8, nevada, Travel, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Being a city boy, I have little knowledge of what the different structures on a ranch like this are — or were, in this case — used for. It was only after looking through the photos on the Walsh Family’s Website that I learned that the taller building at the end of this line of …
