    For over 10 years I shot for two weekly newspapers and had a real blast doing it. So I am going back to those files and start scanning the best of them. Also, I am converting more of my work to b&w and those I can get online right away. I have over 18,000 b&w negatives filed away, so this is going to take a while, but you can expect to see some of those here from time to time. Work? No, it comes from the love of photography and the over 35 years of shooting with b&w film.

    These following are from a trip to Iowa, where I stopped at Ft. Dodge.

    This first one is from inside the Ft. There are several rooms that have antiques from the time that this was used as a Ft to protect our frontier.

    They have moved buildings to the site to create the town of Ft. Dodge.
