WELCOME TO MY ARCHIVES!
The idea behind this site is to keep track of everything that's important to me, and in creating it, I hope it just might prove useful or inspiring to others as well. It provided the motivation I needed to create something that represents my art, writing, work, plans, and some things I believe. Perhaps it will unite those of us who think the same way, or do the same things, and offer differing perspectives for those who may not.
A brief overview
Landscapes Gallery: pretty basic; my best images compiled into one place.
Expeditions & Climbing Gallery: describes each of my big trips and presents the best images from each one, plus a link to the full gallery. This section also contains some of my best climbing images of some of the people with whom I've had the privilege of sharing a rope.
Features Portfolio: a collection of my favorite pieces that I've written for various publications. Some of them are relatively outdated but all tell stories of one thing or another or exemplify some of my better professional work.
The Homestead: deals with the ongoing construction of an off grid, solar powered homestead operation on a piece of land I bought in south-central Montana. .
Nostalgia: is a random collection of images and sentences about times long ago, and the path to the present.
I think that's it. Thanks for visiting and always feel free to contact me about anything (pdronkers at gmail dot com). I'm psyched to hear from you!
