The folks at my day job are very busy this time of year working with the Texas legislature in Austin. I went down there recently to check out our new digs just across the street from the Capitol. Our office is eight stories up and gives me a GREAT location to shoot the Capitol Dome [...]
This is all that is left of the Oklahoma Row of hotels in the now flooded town of Monte Ne, Arkansas. This tower is the only structure of Monte Ne still standing that can be seen at normal lake levels. From 1901 until the mid-1930s the Monte Ne area was a health resort and ambitious planned community, with hotels and [...]
A week or so ago I posted some exterior photos of this chapel. Today, Easter, seems appropriate to post a few inside photos of the Chapel. I hope all of my Christian friends have enjoyed this day of celebrating our saviors resurrection day.
This is the Marty Leonard Community Chapel in Fort Worth. I know Marty and she is every bit a wonderful person and has done much for our community. If you get a chance to stop by the Chapel it is usually open to the public for a few hours daily. If you love beautiful architecture [...]

My wife and I did many enjoyable things in San Diego, including the world famous zoo, the Coronado Hotel and Balboa Park. Today’s image is another [...]
One of the more magnificent structures in Balboa Park (which there are many) is The Spreckles Organ Pavilion. It is a very large outdoor performance area flanked by two curving colonnades. Since the sky wasn’t cooperating the day I was there, I concentrated on the colonnades and their sweeping form. As a photographer, I always [...]
While in San Diego, we visited Balboa Park. What a fabulous collection of gardens, museums and of course the world famous San Diego Zoo. Once the site of the first world’s fair, the architecture in this place is rich with detail and simple Spanish splendor. This first shot is of one the long colonnades that [...]
