Dakota in Black and White
South of Rochford, SD
It’s okay for a mule traveler to take color photos. Still, some are better in black and white…
The focus of my Canada to Mexico mule wagon journey is the Lost Sea, or Western Interior Seaway as geologists call it. That’s the ancient sea that covered the Great Plains 75 million years ago. Along the way, I interview, photograph and film farmers, ranchers, Native Americans, churches and just plain whoever will talk to me about the great inland sea that submerged the North American continent.
For the most part, I shoot in color. Still, deep inside my mule traveling heart, some photos feel better in black and white. Here’s a selection from the Black Hills of South Dakota.
