"I've got a feeling ... this isn't Virginia City" by 

Baker, Nevada – USA

Another outtake from the teaparty series that became a promo for my vintage portraiture venture.

The girls didn’t realize I had started shooting … I just loved the 1950’s noir feeling of this accidental masterpiece.

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.
