Around us we are surrounded by so many different things. For some, it is overwhelming, because for whatever reason they just cannot take it all in. For others they just never notice their environment. To them life is boring. For me life has more to offer than I’ll ever take in or even remember. That is where the camera takes over! To capture those moments that create a curiosity, or something I see that I would like to remember. Be it a moment, piece of art, a tree, a bug, a bird, food, signs, etc, etc. There is so much out in our world to keep the mind pleasantly and happily occupied. With that said, here are twenty random photos I have seen just walking around in different environments. This is a first in a series I call random photos and there will be more along the way. Thank you for stopping by and happy shooting to all the fellow photographers that see the world. And for those of you that do not see the world, open your eyes, it is all around you. Some may say, I wish I had a camera. A great camera helps, but you can use a cell phone. All photos here were captured on a cell phone. The camera is in your pocket.

 

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!
