Taken in an abandoned house near Stanley, North Dakota. After talking to a lady that lived down the road from this place, I learned that the man who lived here spent his winters in Arizona. One year, he simply stayed there and walked away from his life in North Dakota. The house still had pans and food in the cupboards, and easy chair in the living room and a box of True Detective magazine from the 1970’s up in the attic. An interesting place that has sat vacant since 1982. Maybe with the oil boom in the area, it might be restored. I just liked how this “still life” presented itself. The calendar kind of balances out the flyswatters.

A pronghorn antelope surveys the plains for possible danger in Badlands National Park near Wall, South Dakota. I have an appreciation for wildlife photographers, sometimes a nice shot like this just presents itself, but more often than not, great shots are a result of spending a good deal of time out in the elements in the same places animals like to spend their time. I like to get up early, even on vacation, so while my lovely wife was still sleeping, I was out getting some shots of wildlife you don’t see in Minnesota. Badlands National Park bathed in the gold of an early morning sun really is beautiful, if you ever get the chance to pass through during the “golden hour” after sunrise or before sunset, do it, and bring your camera, you won’t regret it.
