 The following stories are my own personal points of view, adventures and experiences.  It’s not my intention to sway your opinion in these stories, and observations, by acting as a social media influencer. I am not, and have no intention of being, such. I refer to this practice as freedom of speech, self expression and thought experiments.  I find it educational to share ideas, adventures and imagery from other parts of the world.

If you learn that you’ve gained some amount of knowledge from my points of view, adventures and experiences, that’s great. If not, then take everything you read here with a grain of salt and explore the subject, whatever it may be, yourself. Come to your own conclusions, and points of view, using your own experiences and observations. But, whatever you do, use science and data before settling on preconceived notions, hearsay, speculation or belief systems. Be careful to not rob yourself of facts and submit to self-imposed ignorance due to popular public ideas or social media influencers.

The Great Plains encompasses the entirety of Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, parts of Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming. Each state offers ecoregions and ecosystems unto themselves and each is unique.

Managing Expectations

After deep personal reflection due to life-changing events, I came to the conclusion that my push, infatuation, to further excel in the field of photography was being hampered by my embrace of the technical aspects of the medium as well as the social pressures of out-performing others...

Finding the Location of the Horse Creek Treaty

The Great Plains were home to many tribes for countless generations. They lived and hunted all along the prairie, sometimes warred with neighboring tribes. In the mid-1800s, they began witnessing mass migrations of white men through their respective territories.

Mentally Forgotten

Mentally Forgotten is a continuing social awareness project drawing from personal experiences becoming homeless and displaced.  In the United States 553,742 people (estimated each night) are homeless...
