San Antonio, TX ~ San Antonio Shoe (SAS) Factory, 101 New Laredo Hwy, San Antonio, TX 78211. These photos were taken in 2010, so these cars may or may not still be located on site. SAS is a family owned shoe retailer. We stopped by for the old-timey cars!
Waxahachie, TX ~ One of my favorite places to be! The people are nice, the stores are unique, and there is history at every turn. Each building has an original style and most are very well maintained. Anyone who loves antiquing should consider a weekend visit.

Dallas, TX ~ Located in Oak Cliff is an eclectic stretch of independent restaurants, coffee houses, and store fronts. This is a fun place to find something unique, or to just take a leisurely stroll. Parking is a bear, but worth the hassle. If you have space in your belly, give Emporium Pies a try… so delicious!
Mineral Wells, TX ~ The story of The Baker Hotel is one of triumph and decline, and hopefully a glorious rebirth! Talks are currently underway about restoring and re-opening the hotel, but it may take considerable effort as funds are still needed. For years the hotel was a beacon for those seeking healing through mineral water therapy, and attracted many famous people of the day. Mineral water still exists in these parts, but the hotel now primarily attracts urban explorers […]
Corpus Christi, TX ~ We are shivering through the third “winter vortex” blast, and I’m pining for my old hood. These pictures show the route my dog and I would take along the shoreline for morning walks. According to my dog, there is no better place to poop than on the shoreline (mommy always picks it up, of course). The one hazy looking picture is of a spanish style house off of a main shoreline street. This is architecturally an […]
Corpus Christi, TX ~ The Corpus Christi Bay houses a number of attractions. These pictures were taken while visiting the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. You can swim in the bay, but you’ll see far more fishers than swimmers. It goes without saying that Texas is hot in the summers, but Corpus is unbelievably hot AND humid. The original photos had such a haze that the color was grayish. The colors have been adjusted a bit, perhaps too […]

Port Aransas, TX ~ Port A, as the locals call it, is about 35 minutes away from Corpus Christi, TX. Here you will find snow birds and die hard locals. This isn’t a fancy resort spot, but it is clean and friendly. If you want beach time without crowds, this is the place to be.
Various Locations ~ I was asked to put together a set of black and white photos for a family member to use in their restaurant. These are the photos they selected, in black and white of course. Some of these photos have already been posted (in color) on this website. The newer ones, taken this year or last year, have yet to be posted. So this is sort of a sneak peak of things to come. Enjoy!

Lakeway, TX ~ Lake Travis is about 40 minutes west of Austin, TX. These pictures where taken while visiting the Lakeway Resort and Spa. This was a quick weekend getaway, so we stayed primarily at the resort. It is a wonderful place to just relax. We were fortunate enough to have great weather as well.
