My Trip West

Entry 1 - Pre-trip - December 18, 2018

I will be leaving OKC on January 2nd and driving along Route 66 to Santa Fe, I hope to photograph Route 66 as I see fit, using as my primary tool the Stenopeika 4 x 5 field camera designed and custom built by Samuele Piccoli. Samuele's workshop is located in Tuscany and his camera systems can be viewed at

I will continue to Monument Valley in Utah, spending a few days on location, then drive east to The Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, then head southeast to Rita Blanca National Grasslands, returning to OKC. After a day off, I am driving east to North Carolina and plan to photograph, boat yards, old homes, and other subjects.
