A short look back - 2016

Wavy gravy in Boston

Found art at Old Bent's Fort in southern Colorado

Curly Heads, San Simeon Beach, CA

On the first day of 2017 it’s appropriate to reprise some images from a year that is memorable for some and lamentable for others. That’s as close to political discourse as you will ever see on these pages.

Bill Davis on Kit Carson Road in Taos

Corrugated fence in Bisbee, AZ

As I explored the detritus of the year gone by the photographs above and below spoke to me in some fashion and, so, are included in my annual hall of shame.


National Day of the Cowboy on the Mortenson Ranch


Reflection in a pothole, downtown LA


Los Angeles skyscape from the Biltmore Hotel


On Highway 104 between Tucumcari and Las Vegas


Aglow in Denver


Stacks in fog, Morro Bay

Happy New Year everybody.

Happy New Year! With luck, all the world will take 2017 by the horns and ride it for all its worth!

Your look back on 2016 is magnificent! Either I haven't seen a few of these jewels or they did not get recorded on my hard drive. One way or another, you provided the world with one heck of a year wrap.

Found Art at Bent's Fort really falls in line with your many snow and winter images. The pothole in downtown Los Angeles is just great. The skyscape in Los Angeles with the Biltmore hotel is a geometric jewel, and "Glow in Denver" has an old world, warmth and mystery to it that is visceral.

What a way to open 2017, Steve. Muchas gracias para todo!

Thanks chica. Some of those may not have been posted or I don't remember. Certainly the rake and the corrugated fence saw the light of day for the first time.
