My article with photos regarding the CSU Spur campus construction occurring as part of the massive National Western Center expansion and renovation in Denver, CO is published online on the website of The Fence Post magazine, and should be out in this upcoming Monday’s print edition.
I have an article submitted that should be published soon about the construction on the three buildings comprising the CSU Spur campus located on the grounds of the National Western Center in Denver, CO. One is the Hydro building, which will be focused on water education, research, and issues.
Another building is the Terra building, which will be focused on education, research, and issues regarding land and agriculture.
The third building is the CSU Spur Vida building, which will be focused on human and animal health. Vida should be complete and ready to tour by the time the upcoming National Western Stock Show arrives in January of 2022. But that image will be a separate blog post in the future!
I have a new story with photos published about the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Foundation’s (CALF) Legend of Agriculture Dinner and fundraiser that took place at the beginning of October. Great organization and great mission.
The story and photos are on The Fence Post magazine’s website, as well as in their upcoming print edition.
I had the opportunity (and good fortune) to be able to talk with a couple of great Colorado guys who have started a Mini Bull contracting operation. Best friends Duncan Cornell and Cory Hazen are good family men and Christian guys who used to bull ride and now own Bijou Buckers Mini Bulls out of Simla, CO.
I was blessed to be able to schedule another editorial photography and interview appointment yesterday (September 10, 2021) in order to do a second story on the massive construction project on the grounds of the National Western Stock Show.
This story will focus on Colorado State University’s (CSU) presence and partnership on the site and its agricultural implications for the state of Colorado. But I also got to sign one of the construction beams that will be placed near the top of CSU’s “Hydro” building, which should be completed sometime in 2022. So I guess my name will be IN the building, rather than on it.
Pretty cool bonus after the tour, though! Now the Hydro building will always produce a smile whenever I see it in the future as that is as close as I will ever get to having my name on a building.
Over 15 years ago, I put in a lot of work and hours into custom building my own website. Over the years, more hours were spent trying to keep it updated. But then it started to feel… dated.
But I procrastinated in redesigning my website because I knew it would take many more hours to get it set up the way I wanted. And I procrastinated. AND procrastinated!
Well… procrastination over. I finally bit the bullet, so to speak, and did a redesign and rebuild of my www.lincolnrogers.com website. It still needs some tweaking and a LOT more photography needs to be added — I am planning on setting up a number of galleries of my past work — but the redesign makes it more current and much more simplified.
The Fence Post magazine has previously published my article and photo spread images from the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days championship round of rodeo. One thing about Cheyenne is that there are always more photos to be shared from there than can fit into magazines!
As a result, I thought I would post on this blog 10 victory images from the 10 categories that win titles and buckles at the historic Wyoming rodeo. Due to space limitations, most of these images did not make the pages of the magazine, so I wanted them to see life here in this blog.
The 2021 Douglas County Fair in Castle Rock, CO set records in the Junior Livestock Sale and in attendance for its rodeo performances. The fairgrounds were packed during the weekends and had plenty of people showing up during the week, as well.
The Fence Post magazine has published a photo spread of my images taken during the days I visited the fair in 2021. I hope you enjoy!
