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.

Some of my favorite culinary creations for 2016. Mexican, American, Vegan, Indian, Mediterranean, African, Hamburgers, Russian, Italian, Greek, Dessert, I love it all!

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.

Here we have a small collection of photos I shot in black in white monochrome of the legendary Luckenbach, Texas made famous by Waylon Jennings song which you can listen to here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvZeYDBY4fw Enjoy the music, the photos, and do stop at the general store, or watch a concert in Luckenbach. You will not be disappointed.

Nestled about 90 miles west of San Antonio is one of Texas’s best state parks. It was once a secret, but no longer as the crowds can get quite large on weekends and holidays. It has many species of wildlife, excellent trails, giant Cypress trees, and the famous crystal clear Frio River for a variety of water activities. Here are a few photos from my recent visit. Enjoy!

Recently, I took time to travel deep southern Louisiana.  A great stop was Palmetto Island State Park in Abbeville, Louisiana. http://www.crt.state.la.us/louisiana-state-parks/parks/palmetto-island-state-park/

This park is a beautiful place with an ecology like none other. The cabin accommodations are really nice and the staff are exceptional.

Here are some photos from the trip. Enjoy!
