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.

Do you ever wonder about the history of your city or a city you visit? How about advances in security and technology? The Houston Police Museum covers many of these topics and it is absolutely free. If you are traveling through Houston or if you live in the surrounding area I highly recommend this museum. Thank you to the men and women who protect us everyday. Here is just a tiny bit of what I saw at the museum.

When I look back on the many great things in life, I always reflect on meals and the good times that are shared around them. There are so many cultures and things to eat that I sometimes wonder,” How does a person eat the same thing everyday?” I rarely eat the same dish in a year because there are so many tasty things to eat. I can attest that I have eaten with people of other religions and political philosophies. We do not agree on anything regarding those topics, but when we sit down to eat awesome food, there is nothing but smiles. God gives us food as a blessing for our hearts, mind, body, and soul. Some want to fight and wage war, I want to eat and enjoy the many great people and things in life. It is much easier to smile than frown. For those who share the same vision. Thank you for the joy you spread around the world. Here are a few of the meals I cooked this year that brought many smiles. If some of them puzzle you? Message me and I will tell you what they are or share a recipe. Bon Appetite!

 

I love to take photos of the many beautiful sights around our city during Christmas because Christ gives us hope and a route to salvation. In many religions you rely on yourself or figurines. In Judaism, Jesus is just a prophet. In Islam, Jesus(Isa) is also a prophet and is not recognized as the son of God (Allah) because he is not worthy because God is too good to have a son, but as King of the Jews and all Gentiles, he is very worthy. It is why his birthday is celebrated around the world during Christmas . God came in the flesh to save us all without need for good works. All we have to do is have faith and say, “God I would like to be forgiven. Come into my life.” For it is by faith you have been saved, through faith—and it is not from yourselves, it is a gift from God. Ephesians 2:8 Merry CHRISTmas!

Digging through more photo files, I found some excellent photos from Charleston, South Carolina I shot a few years back. I love the history of the town and the southern hospitality. If you love BBQ and historical architecture Charleston has it! If you are looking to slow down a bit from the hustle and bustle of a large city this is your place.

Do you ever take so many photos that some just slip by you? That happened to me with these awesome photos I took while traveling Amish country in Pennsylvania. The Amish are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. They do much of their work by hand the old-fashioned way and have a way that is just perfect for their community. The homemade baked goods are the best! I love the Amish! https://lancasterpa.com/towns/
