True Texas

48 miles

True Texas is a collection of flower, bird, and nature photography taken during my 48 mile commute from Haslet to Frisco Texas each day.

Haslet, Texas

I guess Spring seemed to have started early this 2019 allowing me to dust off the macro lens and take advantage of the North Texas wildflowers in full bloom.

Raindrops on Roses

Haslet, Texas

Most Texan summers have brought heat and very little rain to the rose bush in my backyard, but 2018 seems to have been an exception.

Summer Babes

New York City & Texas

Summer is the time for hatchlings to emerge as fully-capable juveniles. The following series captures birds from New York City's majestic Central Park and the Dallas / Fort Worth area from which I live. You might be surprised that not all birds captured sport the colorful plumage we are all familiar with.

Songbirds may be silent during the summer, but the Egrets and Herons are happily hunting for fish. Enjoy my collection of waterbirds captured around Warren Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway.

June 2018 | New York City, NYC

I went to New York City for a photography conference and came back home to little Haslet, Texas with a vision. I had walked with strangers practically my entire time visiting NYC. I did a little bit of photography on the street, but just felt as if my digital camera was getting in the way of what I wanted to do. So I took out my camera from my backpack during my bus trip back to the airport and began snapping away.
