Once the game of golf was my passion. Slowly, the will to improve my game gave way to more important priorities of spending quality time with my family. In the year 2000, a new passion captivated my imagination on a journey to Italy. Italy was such a beautiful country, the point and shoot camera and my beginner skills did not suffice. Enter the quest for more knowledge, taking courses, attending photo tours and always having a camera with me when traveling. The question: does the elusive perfect shot exist? The same parallel can be compared to the game of golf. The answer is a resounding no, yet constant improvement continues! The photo galleries available on this website highlight my photographic journey.
My current focus is to concentrate on images in these categories:
My current project goal is to photograph all 254 county courthouses in the state of Texas. As of this writing, over the past couple of years, the count has risen over 100. Charming small city squares encompassing the courthouse abound over my great state. In some cases, the distance between these cities is short, in others, particularly in west Texas, extremely long. This goal will take several years to complete, yet is so worthwhile. Continue to view the galleries, with those already captured highlighting the unique architecture of the 1880’s forward.
If you enjoy photography, consider the photo tours I have experienced and recommend. The Rocky Mountain School of Photography brings professional instructors, critique, and computer skills together. The Jeff Clow Photo Tours are in great locations and provide the right time and place for keepers and wall hanging images.
Thank you for your time honoring my photography. My request: leave a guestbook commentary. Inform me of your favorites.
