Santa Claus – A Haiku

Jolly full of cheer.

Sleigh, presents, pulled by reindeer.

Happy kids each year.

Cipher- A Haiku

In front of your eyes

Mystery under your nose

Code you’ll never know.

Peppers- A Haiku

Fiery heat waits

Salivating mouth and tongue

Sweat beads on your head.

To capture this macro photo I had to reach under the web and use my camera case

as a background, because the spider would not focus due to all the other plants, sky, etc.

I find these spiders fascinating because they look as if they are smiling.

Thanksgiving – A Haiku

A bountiful crop

For some have nothing at all

For this we give thanks.

Election 2016 – A Haiku

To the polls for change

A sea of red washed ashore

Stop whining snowflakes.

This weekend I attended a Sam Houston State University football game in Huntsville, Texas which happens to be my alma mater. It was homecoming weekend, and I did shoot many shots, but this one is by far my favorite of all. Sitting about 50 yards away, I noticed a player set his helmet on a fan. Shortly thereafter, a trainer set down the Gatorade bottles right next to the helmet. The colors blended well, I took aim, and I captured a great photo.

Today was a great day to get out and shoot some photography and see the beautiful murals around Houston. We have so many great artists and art pieces in our city that you could photograph for days and not get them all. Here is a small sample. Check them out!

Many do not know that the Texas State Capitol is larger than the U.S. White House. It should be because everything is bigger in Texas right? It is loaded with granite, marble, fine woodwork, oil paintings, brass, and much history. I took this series of photos at night for a different perspective and to avoid 105 degree summer heat. Enjoy! And God Bless Texas!

Colorado Bend is a state park located in the far northern part of the Texas Hill Country. It has numerous hiking trails and abundant wildlife for viewing. The big draw is Gorman Falls and the springs along Spicewood Trail. It truly is an amazing place. You could spend weeks, months, and possibly years exploring this grand place. Enjoy the photos!
