    where do you find these places.  Feel like I’m looking at the Walking Dead backlot.

    I agree with Kevin. That is quite some portfolio you are assembling here, Russ. Many places likely just don’t have that much in this vein to photograph. I know that’s true here – property and land are so costly that almost everywhere is quickly renovated and done up to the nines, with disadvantaged people being pushed into outer-city estates of flats and social housing. Rural areas then become a bit of a playground for second-homers and wealthy retirees with just a few farmers among them.

    Thanks, Mark. I spent a fair amount of time in 2006, cruising back roads in southern Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico and West Texas. That’s where most of these pictures came from. Many years before that I spent time in southern Colorado with my Leica M4, cruising the ruins of an earlier time. You can get an idea of the effect those trips had on my by reading http://www.russ-lewis.com/Voices/intro.html, and http://www.russ-lewis.com/Poetry/Poems/ForTheWindPassethOverIt.html. A lot of the west’s adolescence is still out there, but I’m 91 now and in Florida, so my prairie days are over.

    That must have been a road trip! I’ve never had that experience. And thanks for the links. You are clearly having some fun with the library you have assembled over so many years. It is easy to pass something by and forget that in a decade it will have vanished or folks will be saying, ‘You mean you actually saw that …’.
