Good stuff…

This is Kara Artman. She’s an artist, showing her work in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I met her by chance at the Chapman Cultural  Center, which is across the street from Ciclops Cyderi and Brewery. That’s a good combination, in my estimation. The middle of December found me in Spartanburg. I’d gone to visit my daughter…

Frisco at Night…

A few nights ago, I spent an evening in Frisco, Colorado. Did some photography and had dinner at a place named Moose Jaw . I’ll tell you more about that in a minute. Frisco is a cool little town. It sits between Silverthorne, Keystone, and Breckenridge. I dig it because it isn’t really a tourist town….

All Quiet…

It’s been a time of busyness, and stillness, in my life. There isnt a lot going on, and days are pretty much the same. A trip to South Carolina is on the itinerary for this weekend. My daughter and her family are there. After that, I’m not sure what the plan might be. There’s always…

Inside the Stew Wagon…

In case you didnt know, VagabondStew has a YouTube channel (under the same name). There are several things there, but this is one of the most informative. If you’ve wondered about Maggie’s interior, and how I’ve set things up, this is the video to watch. Thanks for commenting, Liking and Sharing. ~Enjoy the Life you’re…

Fort Morgan

On a country road, it’s easier to be mindful and focus on the moment. I practiced, today, as I took a day trip to Fort Morgan, Colorado. Starting with my breathing, I slowed down, in and out deeply, several times. Afterward, I turned my attention to the road. As the lines moved toward and past…

VagabondStew Cover Photo…

Have you ever looked at the cover photo for this page? There’s a lot going on. It’s just one shot, not a composite, but look at the jumble of folks that are captured there. The obvious focal point is that guy with the rainbow bicycle. On the far left, though, is a group of young people…

Andy In Love

Andy was in his early twenties, when we met. It was late spring, and he’d been on the road for three days from Barstow, California. I’d found him standing on a ramp to I-70, outside Denver, with his thumb in the air. Destination: Topeka, Kansas. “What’s in Topeka?”, I asked. I suppose it shouldn’t have…

Feeling Good…

I had a really fine weekend. There were no Stew Wagon or homeowner projects, so things were very laid back. I met some remarkable people. Spent time with a couple of friends. Also, a few articles that had been waiting, got read. It’s been a long time since I felt truly relaxed when I went  back to…

Imaginary Photos…

Every photographer has them. They’re the ones you didn’t shoot. Things you saw while you were doing something else. Unusual light, falling in an familiar place. People doing amazing things, when you don’t have your camera.  Faces. This week, there was a young electrician contracted at the mill. She is beautiful, with pale blue eyes, like shadows on snow. The subject…

Some Frames from Today…

I know that I’ve talked a lot about The Meadow, and some of you may have been curious to see what it looks like. Well, here it is, along with some other shots from around the area. I did get the Stew Wagon back from the mechanic, last night. Here she is, resting in the…

Stew Wagon Update…

This is one of my long weekends, so I turned Maggie over to Colorado Tire and Auto for a check up. With winter coming on, and snow already falling in the high country, I want to be sure she’s in good shape for whatever may come. Turns out, there were a couple of major things…

Morning – October 31, 2017 with Rabbits and Squirrels

Climbing out of the Stew Wagon, this morning, I found a layer of fresh snow, fallen overnight. A line of rabbit tracks cut the beams of my headlights, trailing westerly, over the downed log into bushes beyond. My flashlight revealed no sign of other visitors. Apparently, my moose friend has moved on to more fertile…
