Guess what, my friends? The Bluebonnets are back! For about three weeks each year, they bloom their blue earth decorations around Texas. My yard in the past two years had huge thick patches of them. This year, we have only a few small thin patches. Nonetheless, I’m enjoying them through photography but in a simpler way than before.
Over the years, I’ve tried to capture some of the beauty of Fall in my neck of the woods. I’m sharing a few select samples here to celebrate Fall 2019. Enjoy!
Remember when Instagram was about photography rather than celebrity? Yeah, me too. I don’t hang out there anymore. Instead, I share photos here on my blog, but it’s been a while. So...you’ve heard of the Grand Canyon. But what about the Grand Canyon of Texas?
My family lives in the countryside of Texas with lots of horizon and big skies. One nice thing about it is having more photo opportunities with nature.
The joy of photography for me happens when the wonder of creation surprises me, like a kid still discovering nature for the first time. Some of my favorite photos are ones that turn out better than expected. That happened in this picture I took of a water tower.
A lot of times, I’ll see something that catches my eye. It just looks picturesque. And my brain starts cranking over...there’s gotta be a way to capture that in a good photo. But often, I don’t try. Too inconvenient, too difficult. But today, I decided to try. And I’m glad I did.
