Nail on the Head

A few weeks ago we took a little road trip near the Texas, Oklahoma border. Carpenters Bluff, Texas is not really there anymore. Very few houses are left. Most all the buildings are demolished, but the bridge still crosses the Red River.

I was there several years ago on my motorcycle and it could still be driven. Today it is closed except pedestrian traffic and graffiti. On the Wooden side, moss has all but taken over several yards of the bridge.

We had a nice time but the wind was blowing so much, we didn’t stay long.

I can’t wait to see what the next adventure might be!

Poppies in the park

Social distancing is still in effect, with good reason, but I went to a park to make some pictures. The wildflowers are blooming in Texas and the weather was nice. I went early in the morning, I figured no one would be at this little area.

It was a very nice day but these flowers move so easily with the slightest breeze. The bees were a bonus.

Another Demo

I suppose I am drawn to the demolition of buildings and structures around town. Down the street from our house, another Gas station/Convenience store is being demolished to make way for something new and better.

I guess even Beer & Wine or State Inspections couldn’t save this one.

I’m pretty sure this wont happen in this building anyway!

Which way?

Over the next several weeks, I am going to start an abstract project. This was taken a few weeks ago early one morning a the Hagerman Wildlife Refuge. The early morning glass smooth water made the reflection more interesting to me.

It could be a family, the Daddy, the Mama, and the 4 children all heading West!
