The last two days have been amazing! What a privilege to witness a piece of history that included the life of Mrs. Barbara Bush, former First Lady, and America’s Grandma. I have always admired her as a person and I knew I could not go without witnessing or taking a few photos of the repose trip that left Second Baptist Church and funeral procession today. There were so many stories about Mrs. Bush and she was loved by so many on both sides of the political aisle. The first two photos are not mine. They are from the card given to guests during the repose viewing at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church. I would say may she rest in peace, but knowing Mrs. Bush she is probably already teaching the angels to read in heaven.

Spring time is a beautiful time of year. We come out of the freeze of winter and new life sprouts all around us. Birds sing, baby animals are born, and spring blossoms abound. Here are a few photos of Spring tree blossoms. I know one to be Redbuds, but the other three trees I am not sure of. If you know, please share in comments section.

In continuation of landscape photography I shot these photos while out on Lake Houston. Thank you for stopping by.

I took a stroll through The Strand on Galveston Island today and practiced a little landscape and city scene photography along with a little evening beach photography. It was a lot of fun! I hope you enjoy the views as much as I enjoyed taking the photos.

Recently I have been experimenting with Winter tree photography. Catching different shadows, backgrounds, and angles. Winter provides a different setting because the trees are naked of their leaves. I really like these shots. I hope you do too.

December 2017 brought us three inches of snow and January 2018 has brought us Arctic temperatures of nineteen, sleet, ice, and flurries with wind chills in teens. Being a sub-tropical climate this is quite rare for us, but I do enjoy Houston’s Arctic Tundra. It definite lends itself to a time to take photos that I would not normally have the opportunity to shoot.

Every year I try to hike on the first day of the year. This year it was extremely cold in Needville, Texas at Brazos Bend State Park. The hike started out at 32 degrees with a windchill somewhere between 15-20 degrees Fahrenheit. Survival was dependent on three layers for the legs, four layers for the upper body, and wool socks and insulated hiking boots. As the walk progressed throughout the three-hour hike I saw much wildlife and beautiful scenery. The wind blowing through the trees passing upon my face was like a freezer door open. And you know what? It was fantastic! Here are a few photos. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

Cremation, embalming, mummification, burial, hearse wagons and motor vehicles. Presidents, Hollywood stars, The Pope, Day of The Dead, and many other historical descriptions and displays of last rites and burial. There is so much to learn and see that two hours will just get you a nice walk around and coverage of the building. If you really want to read and learn you can spend a couple of days at the museum. It is a wonderful museum regarding all things dead and the history behind what we do today. I must say my favorite part was the tribute to George Barris the King Of Custom cars and the original Batmobile. I highly recommend it! Here are a few of the 192 photos I took at the museum.
