Macro photos always capture detail that so many of us just pass on a daily basis. The color of the world around us is so bright and cheerful, yet many miss it. Enjoy the beauty if these flowers!

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.

Peppers- A Haiku

Fiery heat waits

Salivating mouth and tongue

Sweat beads on your head.

To capture this macro photo I had to reach under the web and use my camera case

as a background, because the spider would not focus due to all the other plants, sky, etc.

I find these spiders fascinating because they look as if they are smiling.

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!
