David Alan Harvey’s latest project: Off For A Family Drive made it’s way to Durango, Colorado right smack dab in the middle of Halloween weekend, a holiday that this small Colorado town take’s very seriously!

Traveling accross the American West with David was Panos Skoulidas, Candy Pilar Godoy,  Lauren Martinez, and Brandon Li. While David was inherently compelled towards Durango to Celebrate his Mother’s 93rd Birthday…adventures on the town ensued. Unavoidable I would say, given the company at hand…myself included!

Enjoy the images…

David Alan Harvey photographing some of the local personalities outside of the Diamond Belle Saloon. An iconic cowboy bar attached to the historic Strater Hotel on Main Street, downtown Durango, Colorado.

A place I would normally be photographing the local culture, or ordering a stiff cocktail, but on this occasion I was photographing my long time mentor woking on his current project: Off for a Family Drive.

This moment stood out to me, as I witnessed David, in the zone, carefree and altogether enjoying himself!
