Welcome to Protophoto.com. This web site includes several thousand pictures of towns, roads and scenery from the Mountain West. The goal of this project is to present a sampling of the things that you might see if you were to visit the area.
I am building this web site in conjunction with the community directories listed on Community Color. Funding for this expensive project comes from select advertisers. Consider shopping online.
My goal as a photographer is a little bit different from that of professional or photo journalistic photographers. My primary goal is simply to show what exists in a location. If there is a telephone pole in the view, then the picture will include the telephone pole.
This is a large site. You can navigate to an interesting region with the menu on the left. You will find the most recent pictures on the New Photos page and essays about the photos on my blog.
