Ranch Tales

Above is the last photo from the roll of expired infrared film I’ve been sharing recently. This post also marks the last of the photos I have to show you from our October visit to the Buffalo Peaks Ranch.

This all timed out quite well, as Tuesday saw the launch of the Rocky Mountain Land Library’s 2017 Kickstarter campaign, which will raise funds for the renovation of the Cook’s House (pictured here).

Sarah, Jay and I were humbled by the enthusiasm our photos generated among the RMLL’s staff, and we were delighted to learn that many of our images would be incorporated into this Kickstarter campaign; some are even included in the Digital Photo Collection pledge reward. (This post, made on their website last week, talks about our visit and shows several of the photos we shot in October.)

How did this all begin for me? My friend Sarah shared this link to a New York Times story about the library, and I was immediately hooked on this enterprise. My solo visit to the ranch in 2015 was fantastic, but last year’s excursion with my friends exceeded all expectations and just blew me away. I want this place to be a part of my life for many years to come.

Please take a few moments to learn more about this wonderful project, and feel free to get involved, make a donation, or help spread the word, as you choose. Thank you.
