Mr. Campbell’s old car remains parked right where he left it, some 40 years ago.

Placed second in blind vote non-RedBubble competition: “Winter”. The prize was Corel PhotoImpact x3 editing software. Learning to use this program vastly improved the quality of work I was producing.

This was the first image I ever posted to RedBubble.

(5×7 Greeting Card)

Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    Congrats and compliments! Nice picture that generates a very special mood full of controversial sentiments. I admire your artistic eye and add you to my favorites. I often go to your mySpace page and the Great to admire your pictures. Don’t stop! Good luck!

    Arvy! I think you might be a TINY bit prejudiced … but I appreciate your support no less for it!

    When shall we see some of YOUR great photos??

    Yes, I’m. We all do the same. When somebody earns our trust in some field we become a bit prejudiced. Isn’t it?

    Thanks. You’ve just recommended yourself as a prejudiced too :). If I would think the same my pictures were on display already. However, I check the pics for the bristlecones under the “trees”. All the captures came from the White Mountains, CA. Perhaps I should start “saving” the honour of NV and win fame for it. Lol. In earnest, I believe NV is #1 bristlecone state. Yes, I have some plans for the future.
