Llano Texas Eagles Nest…

It has been awhile since I’ve been able to wander over towards Llano and see how the Eagles are doing. They have been nesting near there for quite a few years. I found they’ve moved the nest a little down the road but to my joy the nest is a little closer to the road […]

Austin Vibe…

I love Austin, Texas. I wish there was a better, more articulate way of saying it, but that’s the truth. I love to just BE in Austin. I think it has a ‘vibe’ all of its own. I love to go down around 1st Street or Congress Avenue and just people watch. Well, and dog […]

Takamine Time…

I’ve been so busy with work and fixing things, not to mention blogging, that I haven’t really paid much attention to my guitar. I like accoustic music. Anything that I can play along with (Yes, I started with Stairway to Heaven and worked up to Dust in the Wind). I just like to play. I […]

Talking Animals…

Have you ever imagined animals talking to you or is it just me? Alright, I’m going out on a limb here. I’ve been thinking all day “what am I going to blog about for this challenge?” I have all this work to do and then I have to get gas and have all these things […]

Learn to Be Still…

I often like looking at water.  It reminds me of an Eagle’s song entitled “Learn to Be Still.  It calms me when the world is all abuzz around me.  Bills, new job, christmas, traffic.  Water has always calmed me. Not only that, but hiking is good for you.  I’m beginning to explore the hiking trails […]

River, Like Life…

I love water. Reflections. Watching it flow. Hearing it trickle, or even roar. Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art Rivers are like life. Flowing smoothly reflecting everything around it. Enjoying the sunshine and good times. Then it flows faster and the next thing you know you’ve fallen on hard times. Unemployment. Bill Collectors. And […]

Mornings…

I love mornings. The smell of coffee. Getting up a little bit early to sort of slowly wind up the day (versus jumping up and racing out the door). Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art I also like the wind in my face and the sound of surf. It makes me realize that I […]

Irons in the Fire…

Seems these days I have alot of Irons in the Fire. So much so that I look at the lists of what I NEED to do; What I would LIKE to do; What I HAVE to do, and wonder where to start. I haven’t updated the “Blahg” in awhile due to job hunting and stressing. […]

Lightning…

I’m not a big fan of lightning. It’s powerful. It’s fun to watch from the safety of indoors (unless of course it blows up the transformer across the street, then it gets more on the frightening side). I searched the internet to find out how to photograph this wonder and decided to try it. The […]

Peer Pressure…

I remember when I was young and how sometimes my mouth would override my abilities. I was taken down memory lane here recently when I watched as my grandson told a lovely little girl how he could make it across the monkey bars. He had not taken in to account his physical limitations as he […]

Central Texas Rain…

I’m so glad it rained. There is so much to see and do after a heavy downpour (other than dry off). I noticed my grandson’s bicycle had fallen over in the storm. Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art Now you may be thinking that’s a shadow under the bicycle but it looks like God […]

Old Buildings…

I love old buildings and small towns. It makes me wonder what it must have been like way back in the day when the town was growing up. Image Copyright © 2009,  Barrett Photo Art Downtown Lockhart, Texas is a good example. There are alot of wonderful places to explore in that town. I think […]

All is Quiet…

It’s the end of the day. The floors are swept. The lights turned out. All have left. The streets fall silent as the night takes over. It’s time to sleep now. Image Copyright © Barrett Photo Art The quiet is nice at the end of a long day. The bench sits quietly waiting for morning […]
