The 110th National Western Stock Show (NWSS) held here in Denver, has concluded for the year. I spent most of the show in the historic yards again, adding to my documentary photography project, “In The Yards”, set there. Last year my focus was portraiture.

Documentary Photography of Denver’s Stock Show

The 110th National Western Stock Show (NWSS) held here in Denver, has concluded for the year.  I spent most of the show in the historic yards again, adding to my documentary photography project set there.  Last year my focus was portraiture. This year I created reportage style documentary photographs of “In The Yards”.

I hope to post one photograph from this new collection of photographs every few days.  Below is the first, a photograph of Klay leading a bull to get some exercise as the sun sets.

6 new OTR landscape photographs from 2 recent assignments

Below are 6 new non-traditional landscape photographs from my ongoing project, On The Road.  The photographs are not manipulated, and are an attempt to capture the beauty of the landscape as I pass, usually en-rout to an assignment.

Dramatic sunrise over Lake Estes and an elk

Two photographs from a quick trip up to Estes Park, Colorado this weekend.  The sunrise was wonderful, and I found some elk eating and meandering through the outskirts of town.

A pioneering backyard farm in Denver

A heavy, cold rain poured down on Debra Neeley as she set-up and opened her pioneering Green Gate Farm Stand Saturday morning, but dampen her spirit, or the enthusiasm of her customers it did not. As the opening hour of 9am passed, her front porch – turned farm stand – was packed with customers snatching up fresh herbs, eggs, greenery and tomato starter plants.

This might conjure a picture of life in a small rural town, or of a time long ago, but Debra Neeley is the proprietor of Green Gate Urban Farm and Gardens, a farm located in the backyard of her home in urban Denver, Colorado. She is a one of the first to take advantage of recently passed “cottage food” legislation to legally produce and sell home-grown produce and homemade foods from her residence.
