March 27, 2009 – I was wandering around west of Fort Worth, TX looking for fields of bluebonnets that grew as far as the eye could see, not just the familiar patches growing along the highways. Unfortunately I would not find such a place on this balmy day but there was plenty of cow pasture in all directions where new grass and tree growth was revealing signs of spring.
April 8, 2010 – This old house can be seen off Hwy 281 in Marble Falls, TX. I stopped to see the cool-colored Bluebonnets that encompassed the foreground and noticed a woman already taking pictures of this perspective. It did seem to be the best angle without intruding on the private property. Funny thing is that since I’ve taken this shot, I’ve seen many pictures, slightly different of this same scene.
There’s a children’s picture book series out on the horizon called the “The Cloud Seekers”, written by Robert L. Calixto. It’s still in the early stages due out next year but the concept is about a group of friends who explore the possibilities in what takes shape in the clouds. A simple concept, reminiscent of a time I remember and certainly fun to share with little ones.
