Dead Things With Sugar ~ Montana Fine Art Photography

"...nature is as much a culture of death as it is of life. They are inextricably linked and the distancing effects of technology and culture do nothing to alter this. Once you step into any meaningful interaction with the landscape all of this becomes very apparent. You begin to not just analyze how the passing of life begets other life, but also consider where you fit into the present web: how you are consuming and (chillingly) how you might be consumed." ~photographer Jeffrey T. Baker

(Sugar is my dog and muse and happily appears in these photos)

Sunset on Flathead Lake ~ Montana Editorial & Dog Photography

The view the other day over Flathead Lake.  Even Sugar couldn't believe the beauty of it.

Me in uniform in one of the labs

In 2002 I got a contract position working in the photo archives at the Thomas Edison National Historic Park. It is a mysterious place and creepy even at times. You can, however, still feel Edison's energy in the labs, learn much about times past and see the beginnings of the powerful inertia that brought us to this current state of technology we live in.
