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. Proverbs 14:23 In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.

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!

Nestled deep in the Texas Hill Country is a spectacular oasis of Cypress trees, gardens, springs, and waterfalls. This place is Heaven on Earth and it soothes the soul with all the peace and tranquility it brings. This place is known as Krause Springs. Here are a few photos that capture it’s splendor! I hope you enjoy them and make a visit to Krause Springs someday.

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!
