“Mystery Ranch” For over four years I have driven past this abandoned ranch house set back off Highway 42 in New Mexico, always wanting to photograph it. My hesitation was a gated fence onto the private ranch land. Finally on January 2, 2018 I parked my truck at the gate, climbed over it and walked the near mile into the property and shot my long desired series of the ranch dwellings and surrounding area. It’s a mysterious set of buildings and inspecting it only made my curiosity grow even more wondering what the story and history behind it was. Thus I’ve titled the series “Mystery Ranch.” It includes both black and white interpretation as well as color as the subject demanded both in its varied study. No. 2 in series.
