I’ve added over 70 new photographs to the Documentary/Fine Art Galleries on my website. These images are mostly from my two trips in 2012 and my spring 2013 trip. They are spread throughout the following galleries: Iowa I and II, Midwest, American West, and Other States. Once I’ve completed some more editing, the next wave of additions will come from my fall 2013 trip to Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Utah and several other western and Midwestern states.
