My journey with photography has been a magical one so far. I’ve met interesting people who share the curiosity with me and I have ventured to strange places to photograph. I feel as though photography helps me to explore the world. I’ve since enrolled in Art school to study photography even more. When does photography become art? What voice can I create with photographs? I plan to share as much as I can as I refine my work even more. Here is a photograph of southeast Texas landscape I made.

I captured this photograph during sunset at Marting Dies State Park in Jasper, Tx. This photograph has a warm, relaxing mood and the lines of the trees against light shinning through them creates a soothing rhythm.
I think she looks so remarkable with no make up and I love that whirling hair. Natural beauty shouldn’t be covered up!
Here is another addition to my ongoing series of photographs investigating natural beauty.
There are many old oak trees scattered around southeast Texas. Here is one located near the city hall of Port Arthur.
As I walked through the garden, secluded from the busied streets, the dog slumbered.

I’ve been getting a few opportunities to fish lately. I stay near the coast so you would think that I would have better angling skills. I was out on Boomtown Lake in Beaumont Texas and didn’t get one single bite. Nothing is like the thrill of making a great catch. But even if I don’t catch any fish I still leave satisfied just from being able to relax out on the lake.

Lately, I’ve been having a good time exploring the limits of my cell phone and apps to make interestingly, pleasing photographs. Here is an image of a hisbiscus I recently photographed. I used an iphone 3 and edited with snapseed.
The moon has been full for the last few days. I thought it would be interesting to get a photograph of Hotel Sabine with the full moon in the composition. I wanted to make a long exposure at night so that I could get a blurring effect of the white clouds. I could have achieved this by taking two exposures, one short exposure in order to capture a clear shot of the moon, and one long exposure in order to capture the blur of the clouds. However, I only took one long exposure so I got the blur of the clouds, but the moon is a little overexposed. I decided to post the image.
