This is out in Nevada. Pioche is an old mining camp settled in the late 1860s. This mannequin has been sitting in it’s place for 50 years according to the museum guide. And we were standing there, when the hand moved from the phone and landed on my friend, Omar’s hand while he was resting it there. It was eerie because the tour lady said there’s ghost hunters that come to this museum from hundreds of miles away because of the stories associated with Pioche, Nevada. Who knows? …I’ve been fiddling with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and a variety of actions. This is going to be all rough around the edges, because I am not a big fan of PS. I mostly stick with Lightroom 3. So, I need to master CS5 anyways and learn every digital darkroom technique there is to know.

My buddy Ed said theres a joke going around amongst the Navajo that the only authentic thing made in this whole joint are the scorpions encased in plastic and underneath them it reads, “Made in Tucson, Arizona.”
Bad weather is my best friend. I can feel the change on the wind. The clouds, I love ‘em. They bring the rain. All of it is beautiful!
I’m just shooting photos around Cedar City because my budget isn’t letting me travel too far at the moment. This is the side of Groovacious music store in the parking lot at Evan’s Hairstyling College. I noticed the reflection of the building in the puddle and liked the photo/
The last batch of monsoonal rain clouds are passing through Southern Utah. This happens every year around October. I’m getting excited for the weather to start cooling off which is pretty strange because summer is my favorite season but I am growing to love the country that I was raised in. I’m glad to be a country boy and to be apart of this rural landscape. I’m also very happy with my Sigma DP1s camera.
