Rust On Rust, Dodge Truck, Utah

Rust on rust, on more rust, on a Dodge truck in Bluff, Utah. I’ve made many trips to Bluff over the years. This rusting old Dodge truck has already outlived me. If my memory serves me right, it was there in 1986 on my first visit. This was in May, 2019 and it’s holding up well. Thanks for looking. G

Indigo Patina With Rust

Indigo patina with rust at the Cumbres and Toltec Railway in Antonito, Colorado. Compositions are not always what they seem. Pick a spot on the old engine or rail cars, point the camera and take a shot. This is a macro shot of a small detail. There are many possibilities. Thanks for looking. G

Patinas And Rust Galore In New Mexico

Patinas and rust galore in New Mexico. Peer in to any abandoned building, drive down any back road and you will find scenes like this one. The payoff, from rural flight, is an opportunity to document the past that often gives me a glimpse into the lives of those gone before. Thanks for looking. G

Remnants Of Authenticity #2

Remnants Of Authenticity #2 Guadalupita, New Mexico. Sometimes I come across a building and everything about it says authentic. In this case, tin roof and shadows, puttied in glass in the window frames and my guess is… a gas flue or perhaps a wood stove pipe not to code. New Mexico has no end of wonderful architectural details. The simplicity of this home intrigued and inspired me. Here’s another image from October. Thanks for looking. G

Rust And More Rust, Taos NM

Rust and more rust with some paint thrown in for good measure, here in Taos New Mexico. I love making and collecting these abstract images where ever I go throughout the years. I made this image on a photo tour last week and filed it under “decay” in the archive. As always, thanks for looking. G


Vintage New Mexicana, Rust To Dust

One from the Vintage New Mexicana, “Rust to Dust” series. Over the years I’ve been creating images of trucks and embedding them in remnants of themselves, that is, the rusty plate. It gives a kid of coming and going through time feeling. Thanks for looking. G
