The Lesson in Grand Kids…

I guess I have to say I’ve been blessed by some pretty special people in my life. Just when I thought I was getting old and that it was all work and no play along come the grand children to teach me to relax again. There’s nothing like the memories of hanging out… The absolute […]

Hill Country Beauty…

I love the Texas hill country and the quiet that comes with going off the beaten path (or paved highway). I guess by ‘highway’ I mean Interstate, but out and down Farm to Market roads there is alot to be seen – especially around the Guadalupe river. There are places you could go and sit […]

Artist -vs- Creep…

I’ve been pretty self concious about my weight and my back lately. I suffer from a slipped disc and chronic back pain and my gut isn’t helping. So I have been going hiking quite a bit with my camera. Today, around Lake Georgetown. Lord it was hot but I wanted to burn off some steam […]

Austin, Texas…

I really love Austin, Texas, especially downtown. It’s picturesque and the people are amazing! I have to say that the city has its own ‘vibe’. They’ve just completed the Austonian in downtown which is now the tallest building in Austin. I wonder if they let folks up on the top to take pictures or if […]

Pride in Workmanship…

You know? There is alot of awesome architecture around Austin, Texas and what I guess you would call the “I-35 Corridor. But take a closer look at the photograph below. When I saw this all I could say was “Really?”… I wonder what happened. Either the shorter people called in sick or maybe a shift […]

Favorite Things…

I know I’m behind but boy can life get busy sometimes. Of course I was struggling with what I could possibly write about and then I remembered an impulse I had. I was in Starbucks (rarely but I treat myself once in awhile) and I saw this coffee cup. I had to have this coffee […]

Old Cars…

I like old cars. I see them in fields and on the side of the highway. Some are rather nostalgic looking. From a photography stand point I love stumbling upon these seeming works of art – but is it ‘junk’? Litter? Or is it an eyesore to some? I don’t know. I found this speciman […]

Photography as Art…

Do not concern yourself with the questions, “What is art?” or “Who is an artist?” Everything is art. If what you see and do comes from your heart, you are an artist. – Anonymous   Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art Simple quote that inspires me to look around and take photographs that make […]

Storm Victim…

Well. Seems like the storm the other night got another victim. It happens more often than you think when you leave your computer on all night without the benefit a UPS (Uninterupted Power Supply). Powerstrips don’t always protect as they should and hard drives can still be damaged by not being shut down properly. Image […]

Magic Hands…

Magic hands that touch the strings to make the sounds that stir the soul to write and fill the world with music. I have such wonderful friends that have taught me so much. For that I’m truly thankful. Life just wouldn’t be life without being able to play and make music with my friends. Image […]
