Down But Not Forgotten

This shot is part of an idea I had when I saw this gorge full of discarded cars and trash. I went on a hike with my daughter and saw this gorge but did not have my camera with me. The next year we returned with plans of crossing the river but the run off from Lake Chelan was quite intense compared to the same time the year before. The year before we could have walked across the river to get to the gorge. The images below show what we were up against, I had to come up with another idea if I wanted to get there. So as I left with an unsuccessful attempt to get to the gorge I kept my eyes open and noticed a piece of property on the other side of the river with a dirt road leading to it. So the next day we searched for the road and hiked down the river bank on large boulders not sure if we could even get there. As I hiked I kept in mind our safety and hoped we could hike without causing an avalanche. When we got there and I was shooting my leg sunk into the rocks causing my foot to get buried and scraped the side of my ankle. I had an idea of shooting up the gorge and making the cars look like a modern art sculpture but that idea did not work. I have a few more shots I am working on from this shoot.


This is a shot from the hike on the first day. The year before we could have walked across the river.

Everything including the kitchen sink. I can not imagine see this view and thinking this would be a great place to dump my trash.

Cowboy Car

I saw this 1936 Chevrolet Standard at the 2014 Summer Fest in Antioch. With the guns and skull with horns made me think of Roy Rogers     Pontiac Bonneville customized by Nudie Cohn.

Banjo Creek Farms Revisited

I have shot Banjo Creek Farms in winter in the post Banjo Creek Farms. Here is a shot during the summer. I like to visit the same place at different times of the year to shoot a completely different feel, like the post This Old House would not be the same at any other time of the year. Not that you can't get a good shot during a different time of year just a different feel.

Red Duck Nursery Manson Wa

This is my Grandfathers old orchard it is now the Red Duck Nursery in Manson Wa. I still laugh every time I think about my cousin being perplexed about people buying metal chickens. I see that he has sold quite a few in the area surrounding the nursery. My wife like the large chicken on the left, but not as much as the Bill King (the owner of Red Duck Nursery) likes it. That is why it is still there.

69 Chevy Camaro

I always liked the Chevy Camaro my favorite was the 1967 SS the first year and very similar to this 1969. One of my favorite parts was the look of the cowel induction hood along with the sleek body lines. I saw this at Summer Fest 2014 in Antioch.
