Tena and I like to drive around central Texas, looking for cool things to photograph. We came across an abandoned cotton gin a few years ago which looked virtually untouched for decades. It was as if the workers clocked out one day and never came back. Everything was still in place, guarded only by a buzzard that lived in the roof. This electrical panel has transformed from function to something more resembling mixed media art. So cool!

"Oh Galveston"


A few years ago Jim and I headed out to Galveston Island for a little pre-paid vacation. The weatherman said 99% chance of rain. We went anyway. No one else showed up. It did rain in the morning but then the sun came out and we had The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier almost completely to ourselves. 

So fun!

"Rear window"


This is the rear window in one of the most famous places in the world –

Café du Monde in New Orleans.

Here a chef is at work creating beignets. So what appeared to be snow in the clue could actually be…

flour and powdered sugar goodness?

"New Day"

Lake Austin still has a few secret places away from the hustle-n-bustle.

A place where you can go to

catch your breath 




soak in the serenity.
