a different view of the West ….

Cowboy or ?

So here we were last night we were at the Greenwood Saloon in Bluff Dale, TX for our friend’s retirement party from the Fort Worth Fire Department when my lady friend spotted this ‘old cowboy” leaning against the wall with a beer in his hand. This guy is right our of central casting for a Lonesome Dove character so she took some discreet photos of him and then went over to talk to him only to find out he is a Chiropractor from nearby! I introduced myself and found that he is from the area and just happened to have an old hat he wore out. Just goes to show that you never know until you introduce yourself. Full disclosure here, I took her photo and massaged it a bit.

Driving along Singleton Blvd today in Dallas, through Trinity Terrace I spotted the Texas flag in stiff winds on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. I had to go on across the river to make a u-turn and navigate some traffic to find a place to park and then standing in the middle of the crosswalk, took this picture.

Abandoned canoe rental business on the Brazos

Sometimes, driving down the road I spot a photo op that screams “take my picture” This afternoon, as the sun low on the horizon, I was driving by an old canoe rental facility just outside of Glen Rose on the Brazos River and just had to turn around and take this picture.

Pop-up studio

I have been thinking about doing a pop-up studio to focus on pet portraits that I do occasionally. It just happens that a friend of mine owns an old historic building in Glen Rose that has a top floor that is unused. There are big windows on the south and northerly exposures giving me a lot of natural light to work with. Above, I did some test shots with no flash on a cloudy day and happy with the results. Now all I have to is a little clean up and move some furniture in that I can use. Should be fun to experiment here.
