LETS TALK PHOTOGRAPHY
FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY - BASICS OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY - EQUIPMENT - PHOTOGRAPHY SOFTWARE
Although I've lived in Texas most of my adult life, yesterday was the first time I had the opportunity to photograph a cattle trail drive. Weldon Wilson, of Brownwood, TX, decided to transfer his Longhorn cattle about 16 miles to another pasture. Instead of just loading them up onto a truck, he had several cowhands trail drive them to the new pasture. The trail was mostly along country roads and one major highway crossing. Also of interest, Bob Phillips, of Texas Country Reporter, and his TV film crew were there to film the event. I didn't get to go along the entire trail, but I had a great time photographing some of it. I do want to thank Gail Croft, a member of our local photography group, for inviting me to participate.
WOW! I now realize how fast time in moving on in my life. It's been several weeks since posting to this blog, and it's time to play catch up. The last posting was on Nov 22nd, so I think it best if I start with the most current subjects/events and work my way back to the the 22nd. as best as I can remember...barring any senior moments.

4. Early birthday gifts of a new camera, lenses, and printer have taken up most of my time for the past couple of weeks, which takes me back to Thanksgiving and the November 22nd posting.
This post in long enough so, I'll be posting about the new equipment, etc, in the next few days.
