Project Lone Star

A few years ago I wanted to start a photo project for myself. I wanted to capture everything that represented “Texas”. The rodeo, long lonely roads, real BBQ, different cities, etc. But, what I’ve captured is not what I had planned. Instead, I’ve captured what Texas means to me.

Texas means my family and friends, that constant radio on in my grandpa’s workshop, the random park in the middle of nowhere where I met the nice lady feeding chickens. So while these may not be your ‘typical’ Texas photos (no gun fights here!), I’d like to share some photos that I’ve taken over the past several years.

There are a lot more photos to upload, but unfortunately I don’t have time to look through them because I’m leaving for Europe tomorrow! It’s a really big trip for me, as I’ve never been out of the United States (except to Canada).


  • Left my wonderful, very comfortable job.
  • Got my flu shot.
  • Picked up my pea coat (which was in the dirty laundry basket for the past 3 years) from the dry cleaners.
  • Received my new camera lens in the mail.
  • Bid my family and friends goodbye.

I’m about ready to march out of Texas.

My next post will be from Germany.

See ya’ll in Europe!

    1. Thanks for such a nice comment! I’m happy these photos have more of a meaning to you! There are so many stories behind one photo, it’s a little hard to not go into too much detail. =)

      I got a Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. I was looking at the canon 35mm f1.4 for the longest time, but ehh….I really can’t afford that right now. I just wanted a good, light weight walk around lens.

    1. Thanks for checking out my blog, Dieu! =)
      At first glance, they may look like watches! But they’re different gauges for small planes. My grandpa has a workshop where he fixes airplanes. =)
