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 [...]
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 [...]
Yesterday gave us another beautiful sunset. We get a lot of fantastic sunsets in Texas. As my friend from North Carolina said, “The sky is just bigger in Texas”. My office faces the west, so I am constantly looking out to see what the sky will offer as I’m leaving the office. Last night was [...]

Well it has been almost two months since my last post. I promise not to let that much time go by again, even though I have a great excuse. We moved to a new house over the last month and a half. Combine that with the end of my busiest of busy seasons at work and [...]
Summer in Texas is always a challenge when it comes to dealing with the heat. This summer isn’t quite as bad as last year’s, but it still gets into the triple digits once and awhile. With that said, we are lucky here in North Texas, to have had a good amount of rain thus far [...]
