Doesn't this look like a fun place to eat? It's in tiny Round Top, Texas. I've been by dozens of times and can you believe I've never been inside! The food is supposed to be seriously delicious.
For more delicious morsels of the visual kind, visit our host Dragonstar, at

Thanks for stopping by.

I was the last one out of the planning room at school and in the dark. I didn't mind; there were over 80 kindergarteners on the other side!
I turned the image on the side because I couldn't resist the laser look. Notice the one piece of popcorn on the floor.

For more creative images, walk through the door to Dragonstar, our host. She's waiting for you! :-)

It's impossible to show the misery associated with a drought. Here in Texas, there are untold numbers of farmers selling off their cattle, deciding to plow up their fields, or watching their small pond dry up.

We were one of those that had one or two extra rainfalls this year and managed to make a cotton crop. We have an excellent farmer that manages our farm with careful soil & water conservation in mind. This is our farm in Danevang, Texas. We called this year the miracle year.

I guess what I'm working on is this: if you take a nice photo of a painting, is it now a photo or is still a painting? Maybe it's not as black and white as I suppose. Perhaps it's in that gray area. This is from the McNay Museum of Modern Art in San Antonio. 

Inside the galleries
I especially enjoy this one since it was by a pane of windows. Capturing the windows behind this 'see through' art makes it even more 3 dimensional. This was my favorite to photograph.

The outside of the museum

Finally some surrealism: Waiting across from my wife  and the decapitated art guard.

I was so impressed with the place, I've made a tab at the top of my photo blog. Please go take a look. It was quite refreshing to find that this museum allows photography (no flash) in all of its permanent collections. The geometry of the 1920s is still fresh and exciting.
