Finally a Barn to explore

The Night Loft
Hello Friend-
If we've been in a car together within the last year or so then you probably remember me scanning the road sides for the perfect barn to photograph. If we haven't been out on the roads together then I hope we get to go someday. the other day Mom and I were out for a drive and I spotted a barn at the Hill Country State Natural Area that clearly needed to be investigated further.  So I put a call out to my photo buds and they agreed to explore it with me.
We braved low water crossings, frigid northern winds, pollen for days and an early morning start to see what we could see.
We found some wonderful light and a barn full of character.  Warm old wood, cool tin walls, dirt floors and a loft where apparently the night sky is kept during the day.  What's not to love?
This does not mean I have finished exploring barns.  In fact, this has whetted my appetite and I will continue to explore each one I come across. 
I love spotting the little quirks in the structure.  The reuse of found architecture, recycled doors windows and wood bits and pieces.
Good times and a wonderful lunch with like minded photo fiends makes for wonderful memories and photographs.  Give me a heads up if you've spotted a barn you think I need to check out.
So until next time dear friend, keep your eyes open and see what you can see.  Oh and you can see me and my work in person on March 12 from 10-4 at the SoFlo Market
All the best,

Some Button Loves You

Hello Friend-

  I hope this new year finds you where you want to be or maybe on the way there.  That's true for me.  I'm at the point where I feel like I can focus my energies full time on my photography.  That means I've been assembling my art show booth set up, booking shows, building inventory, keeping myself open to new opportunities and adventures.  The show aspect of that starts this Saturday with a booth at the SoFlo Market here in town. San Antonio in Springtime is something to see and yes Spring starts in February here. Put away those sweaters.  So if you are in the area stop in and say Hi.  I will be at lots of other venues in and around the area and will keep you posted.  Follow along on my Facebook page and all the other social media links you can find on the right side of the page.  If you follow me on Twitter you'll be subject to some of my binge passions, Outlander, Agents of Shield, etc.  There's always something interesting happening there.

So...that's it.  The family and pets are doing well.  I'm spending the Spring and Summer working the art show/craft fair circuit in the area (fingers crossed for a Ruidoso show), Scotland in September because...Scotland, and any other adventures I can find my way into.  Happy Valentine's Day and like the photo says I hope some button loves you.

I'll write again soon,
