Texas and Colorado …

I thought I’d give you a quick summary of the last week.

I was shooting areas of west Texas last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

I took the above photo (window reflection) at a small radio station prior to going inside to meet with the radio folks.

(That’s my friend, Daniel, walking behind me.  He didn’t know he was about to be a part of my composition.)

I love the LINES in the above photo.  So many things came together to make it a great shot.

Most of the areas we were shooting were very remote.

I got very little sleep … which is normal for these type of shoots.

I saw (and photographed) some beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

The most vibrant was a sunset in Marfa.

The reflection of the sunset on the railroad tracks was amazing.

I arrived in Colorado in the wee, dark, hours of Monday morning.

It was a whopping 6F/-14.5C when my plane landed at the Denver International Airport.

I spent all day Monday and Tuesday with my sister.

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to spend time with her.

She is improving from her accident, but she has a very long road ahead of her.

There was snow in Colorado … which thrilled me beyond words.

I can’t remember the last time I saw snow, but it must have been at least ten years ago.

(I didn’t get to see snow actually falling though!)

My sister and I drank tea, and talked, and worked together on a jigsaw puzzle.

She, obviously, can’t drive so I took her out for a brief trip.

We also went for a short walk.

I think it was good for her to get a little change of scenery.

Yesterday, my first day home, was the usual get-caught-up-from-a-trip stuff.

(With a shot in the ass of Toradol thrown in for good measure.)

I’ll have more about my recent adventures in upcoming posts …..

      Thank you.
      There was such great light in Texas.
      I could have stayed shooting for another week!

    West Texas- it’s an itch I get every now and then, an itch that must be scratched. I don’t know what it is about West Texas but it is in my soul. We were at Fort Davis earlier this year which isn’t that far from Marfa (had to go!). Have you done or considered doing Big Bend? Magnificent scenery there, I’m jus’ sayin’!! 🙂

    I am going to have to look through your Texas shots, fo sho

      I can understand the itch now that I’ve been there.
      It’s really beautiful in it’s own unique way.

      I was hoping to get to Big Bend, but there just wasn’t enough time.
      Maybe next time?
