Just a little frosty....

This morning there was a nice white layer of thick frost on almost everything.  After working a bit on my school work I took a break and went outside to get a few pictures. - Todd

Giant Springs Sample

I'm working on a couple of projects for school that have led me down to Giant Springs.  Here is one image I took that I am particularly fond of.  More to follow at a later date. - Todd

Film and the night....

Back in August was the Perseids Meteor Shower so I decided I would break out my trusty Pentax Program Plus film body and take some long exposures to see if I could capture some of the meteors.  Though only a couple of the images contain meteors, I still am pretty happy with the star trails I captured.  If I wasn't dependent on other's to develop my images, I would probably shoot more film.  13+ dollars for one-hour development and a CD copy of the images.  Even though it can be a pain to use, I bought another roll when I picked up my prints...I kind of miss film. - Todd

Smokey Crescent Moon

Nothing like a smoke colored crescent moon setting over the high plains. - Todd

This weekend....

I spent a good majority of my weekend photographing a rodeo in Vaughn as a favor to the rodeo committee.  It was a pretty good time and I have a lot of images to work through but I really liked this one, taken today, and thought I would get it out here on my blog since I gave out a few of my cards today. - Todd

Sentimental Journey

Boeing B-17G, Sentimental Journey arrived in Great Falls today and Brendan and I got a chance to take a close-up look of the beautiful aircraft.  For those of you who might be interested, the aircraft will be at the airport until Sunday, September 9th and tours are available for $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for kids 5 - 12 (I think).  Here is a link to their webpage:

A few pictures...I could have stayed there all day and took pictures. - Todd

A few aircraft....

I noticed a KC-135 flying around Great Falls today so I took a trip up to the airport.  When I got up there I was able to watch it do a couple low approaches and some F-15s coming in for landings. - Todd

September Sunrise

After taking Christopher to the airport this morning I thought I would take advantage of being up and about before the sun.  This picture was taken this morning from the interstate on my way home.  Would have been a bit nicer had there not been bands of smoke in the sky. - Todd

Smokey Day, Again

Just a bit smokey around Great Falls today, courtesy of the various forest fires through out the region and even some from Idaho.  This was shot around 11:30 this morning from up at the airport. - Todd

Blue Moon

Tonight's blue moon...not actually blue but the second full moon of the month of August. - Todd

The boys and I took a little drive through the mountains today...down past the Sluice Boxes, across past Logging Creek Campground and back into town through Stockett and Sand Coulee.  Nice little mountain drive.

From a trip to Ryan Dam the boys and I took a couple of weeks ago....

Saturday, May 19, 2012


It is the ordinary scene that I often find myself attracted to when doing my photography. The area often traveled but rarely noticed for more than just a short moment. Had someone stopped to think about the area they might see there is more than meets the eye. Places that mean more to days gone by...areas that might possibly have more history than meets the casual eye today.

Railroads were once the primary means of transportation for the American people. Though still active, it is more in the movement of freight and less in the movement of people. Many miles of railroad tracks lay idle across our great nation, symbols of the once ever popular transportation system now taking a backseat to the concrete ribbons of highways that move us around nowadays. Along these tracks are many relics of the golden days of the railroad; signs, signals and support buildings. Like the tracks they stand near, some are cared for while others are left to deteriorate in the weather....soon to be nothing more than a memory.
