We are a city taken over for Super Bowl 2017. People are coming from all over to enjoy our lovely, red elephant, conservative state home of Republican governor Greg Abbott and many President Trump supporters. We are free of the liberal riots plaguing other American cities. We are state income tax-free, you can carry a gun, and we have plenty of work and opportunities. We have numerous fine dining establishments, excellent housing, southern hospitality, and people from all over the world who embrace America. Sometimes we disagree, but we respect each other. We see ourselves as Texans no matter where we come from and we love our country, which is Texas. Laughs! Texas America! The Great Lone Star state. Enjoy your stay and Go New England Patriots! Five for Brady.

These images were taken at the Sauer Beckmann Farm in Stonewall, Texas. This is a living history farm. The Sauer Beckmann’s were president Lyndon Johnson’s neighbors during the days of the Texas White House. These were days when you raised and grew your own food and did many chores manually. Men, women, children, and families worked hard together, praised God for their bounty of harvest, and did not sit around relying on handouts as much of modern America today.┬áProverbs 14:23 In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.

This weekend I attended a Sam Houston State University football game in Huntsville, Texas which happens to be my alma mater. It was homecoming weekend, and I did shoot many shots, but this one is by far my favorite of all. Sitting about 50 yards away, I noticed a player set his helmet on a fan. Shortly thereafter, a trainer set down the Gatorade bottles right next to the helmet. The colors blended well, I took aim, and I captured a great photo.

Today was a great day to get out and shoot some photography and see the beautiful murals around Houston. We have so many great artists and art pieces in our city that you could photograph for days and not get them all. Here is a small sample. Check them out!

Many do not know that the Texas State Capitol is larger than the U.S. White House. It should be because everything is bigger in Texas right? It is loaded with granite, marble, fine woodwork, oil paintings, brass, and much history. I took this series of photos at night for a different perspective and to avoid 105 degree summer heat. Enjoy! And God Bless Texas!

Colorado Bend is a state park located in the far northern part of the Texas Hill Country. It has numerous hiking trails and abundant wildlife for viewing. The big draw is Gorman Falls and the springs along Spicewood Trail. It truly is an amazing place. You could spend weeks, months, and possibly years exploring this grand place. Enjoy the photos!

The Blanco River is another Texas Hill Country favorite that provides excellent paddling, fishing, hiking, along with swimming in the Texas Hill Country. Here are a few photos from my recent trip. Enjoy!
