This month I am going to continue to show you images that are in the running for my retrospective book. They may not be completely finished in the sense of dodging and burning, and color balance, because at this point they are just in the running. They have never been published or seen before.
The banner panoramic was taken in Terlingua "Day of the Dead" celebration.
**Boy on the Burro**
This was taken in Marathon. Sometimes I am on my bike, and an image presents itself. I always try to carry a camera, and these days the Iphone works great. This was taken with a real camera, but I take photos every day with the Iphone, and I believe I've made images that I could not have gotten any other way.
Several years ago I did a story for Texas Monthly on the Klein Family. A working ranch family. The three boys were homeschooled, and worked from sun up to sun down. Sterry Butcher was the writer. We have worked together several times, and turned out some great stories together.
**Jim Carrico and Ophelia Falcon**
This was taken the opening day of Boquillas. The crossing had been closed for quite some time. Jose' Falcon, Ophelias husband, passed away quite some time ago. Jim, suffered a stroke and did not have full control over his limbs. Crystal Albright and Mike Long worked diligently to get Jim across. It was a tearful moment for all of us when they finally met again.
I have something serious I want to write about, and it is still formulating in my head. I hope to present it to you next time.
As always, thank you very much for supporting me. I couldn't live here, and do what I am doing without you.
Happy Full Moon. Get Outside.
