By Request

I have had a number of requests for more posts (one is a number!)  I recently took a short trip to Lind to see the Combine Destruction Derby.  It is a great event and draws thousands of people to this small town.  A great time is had by all.  I…

Fooling Around

I have been playing around with a different look for some of my landscape photos, especially those with dramatic skies. This was taken along Highway 2 near Waterville, WA.  Look closely at the horizon and you can see snow in the distant Cascade Mountains.  I have not had a chance…

New Eastern Washington

I have taken a month off from posting.  This next year I will continue but will do so on a periodic basis – when the mood strikes.  During May I took another trip east.  I revisited old haunts in the hardscrabble region and ventured into the Palouse.  The Palouse is…

Waterville

Last week I introduced you to a couple of people that I met in Waterville; today I will share a few photos from there.  I don’t have much to say and will let them speak for themselves. Note that the bottom two ‘corners’ still have piles of snow on April…

One Day in Eastern WA

I just returned from a two day trip to Eastern Washington.  I have lots of rolls of film to develop and that will take some time.  I did, however, take some digital shots that I will share.  I might add that the digital camera makes a great light meter and when…

Water

  Grand Coulee Farm Grand Coulee Dam (below) and the Columbia Basin Project were designed to provide irrigation for 1,100,000 acres.  Phase 1 irrigates about 670,000 acres, the other 400,000 acres of phase 2 have never received their water and constitute the ‘hardscrabble’ wheat country I have been documenting in…

Ritzville 5, More Upstairs

First let me fix an error in last weeks post where I incorrectly associated the Ballroom spaces with the Orris Dorman Building.  The ballroom and other spaces that I included are on the second floor of the old German American Bank Building and that building now houses an active bank and…
