    Johnny’s Western Auto - Original location in Raymondville Texas

    A nice urban discovery from a recent trip to South Texas. These walls have seen some time pass for sure.

    Would anyone be interested in beta testing my iOS app for XT-4 Film simulation storage?

    I decided to solve my own problem. I am forever losing my notes on my film simulation settings for my fabulous XT-4. So I'm working on an iOS app to keep them all in there and always have them to hand. I am wondering if anyone would be interested in beta testing it for me? I hope to have it...

    And older but still favorite Sunset Pond

    This is shot from a local small lake in a park here in DFW Texas. To this day I have yet to take an image of a sunset that spoke to me as much as this one did and I was lucky enough to capture it. Thanks for taking the time to look at it.

    5D MKII and M50 Owner, Where to next to replace the 5D?

    Hi all, I have been out of the photography loop for quite a while and I know there are a ton of camera bodies out there now. I recently got the M50 with the EF adapter and really have fallen in love with it. But I still find my 5D MKII better when it comes to noise and generally I just feel...

    Recent Ice here in Texas

    My contribution to the recent Ice encounter in Texas, the DFW area did not get it too bad. I found this shot in the backyard which I felt portrayed the couple of days nicely.

    A self portrait, Critters Christmas view and a tree.

    There actually was an idea behind the shot, I noticed the reflections of the tree around the ornament and with the fish eye perspective I imagined that if there was a critter hiding in my tree looking out that it could well be the view of the world that it could see. But the problem was I liked...

    White flower, new discovery in yard.

    This particular plant (trying to locate name) has never flowered until this year, was a great discovery when we came across it about a week ago in our yard. It's semi-windy today so the tripod and close up filter did the best they could.

    British Classic Car show in sunny Grapevine

    A few shots from today at the British Emporium in Grapevine. How can you not take the odd shot or two of the classic Red British Mini Cooper :) #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 (Yes I did forget my polarizer, kick me now!) I have to say I'm getting real tired of problems with the 50D though, I got...

    Taken today, I see these interesting shapes and textures every morning in the bathroom and today I thought I'd actually get around to seeing how they look on camera. I wanted to keep the depth shallow to diffuse the background and help break up some of the lines. Thanks for looking.

    Early morning walk.

    Taken during an early morning walk around Arlington (Texas) River Legacy Park. I didn't get the sun rays as well as I hoped, so I'll have to work at that. Thanks for looking. Maybe next time I'll get to see some of the wildlife around there I hear about.

    Canon 30D > 40D or wait for the 50D?

    So I know this question has no one answer, however I am so very tired of the dust on my 30D sensor all the time that I am considering the 40D for that reason alone (yes I know all the other features are very nice as well, but it's the dust that caps it for me). No matter how many times I clean...

    Milam County - Texas, Courthouse

    Whilst moving my library around I came across this shot that I do not recall ever sharing. I think the reason is that I simply hated having the tree's always in the way (and do not believe in retouching them out simply to fix reality :) ). But I do love the nice warm tones of the stone they use...

    A trip around my Library at home.

    Whilst looking around my Library I thought this made for an interesting photograph. Technically it's not B/W so I posted in General. Processing was done with Apple's Aperture and Nik Software's SilverEfex Pro. Thanks for looking.

    I think my cat might be lazy

    After defending my little guy to my wife for so many years, I can no longer defend him when it comes to his willingness to appear less than lazy.

    Yard buddies

    If only I had got the DOF right and the bird was sharp as well. Lesson learned here, f4 or 5.6 on a 70-200mm racked out and close to the subject is not enough.

    Prepare to defend!

    I get it...don't come any closer.
