I shot senior portraits of Butte High School senior Kyle Kankelborg and we found some great locations, including this junkyard near the Depot. It’s full of smashed cars or all colors and types. I’m hoping to get a macro lens in the future so I can get extreme closeups of the junk.

I obviously like stairs, I’ve probably taken and posted at least 20 photos of stairs in the past year and a half! Butte just has some old interesting stairs, and the light seems to always be neat on the stairs. The Maley Block is right next door to my studio, and the apartments are above …

The Rookwood Building is on Main Street, and houses the BS Cafe upstairs. Downstairs there’s this old speakeasy from the prohibition era.
This is the interior of the Stephens Hotel. Most people can recognize the second photo, which is a paper cutout silhouette of two people. That is viewable from Park Street. The Stephens Hotel is on the corner of Montana and Park Street, on the SW side of that intersection.
Thanks to the Old Butte Historic Adventures for letting me tag along on the tour. I’m going to go to a few of the locations by myself here in a few days, such as the speakeasy and the Stephens Hotel, so I can get some photos without people in them. This photo is in the …
