Kerr County Market Days

We braved the cool weather today and headed over to Kerrville for this monthly event. It was fun, the first time I had been there and though I didn't have much money to spend, I thought it would be fun for picture taking.

This water fountain was my favorite item. It just caught my eye. Maybe because I'm doing dishes 4 or 5 times a day ( no fancy electric dishwashers at my house, folks....I AM the dish washer). Maybe it was just because the dishes were so much nicer than mine. LOL. Anyhow, since I couldn't buy it, I did want a picture of it, so I took one.

1985 snow

Feeling a little chilly here today in TX, not this chilly, but still. I wanted to share some of my older photos. I took this in 1985 with my Minolta XGA. Yes, it does snow in Texas, every so often. We got 13" that year. I was on cloud nine. I walked all over the neighborhood taking pictures as proof. This tree is just down the street from my mom's house. I also have a sunrise shot of it, but I'll share that later.


when I can't sleep

I go outside and take pictures of the moon. Okay, normally I don't. But I did tonight. First time I've tried and I think it turned out pretty good. I don't have a remote shutter release, so I ad-libbed and used the timer release on the camera. It worked!!!


so many headstones...

I forgot how big Ft Sam Houston Cemetery was. So many headstones. It's a very humbling place to visit. We went today to honor our veterans and visit the kid's grandpas graves.

Thank you to all the men and women who have served our country in the various branches of the military.


seeing red

...and orange, and yellow!

We took a hike today through Lost Maples State Natural Area and I took lots and lots of photos. If you want to see them all, click on the photo above. I may play with editing them some more tomorrow, if I'm not paralized from the pain in my legs. Actually, most of them are pretty nice without any editing...but I have some fun ideas I want to try out.


view from the park

This is what my church looks like from the park where the kids and I have started walking. I noticed it yesterday and brought a camera today to shoot a few pics. I thought it was pretty cool how all the birds were flying just at the time I snapped the shot.


Fall in TX

This is not my photo, my 6 yr old daughter took this when we went on a walk at the nieghborhood pond yesterday. I had taken along my point-and-shoot camera and she said "Oh, let me take a picture of the fall leaves!" I thought it came out pretty nice, so here it is.


Not my daddy's air show pics

IMG_4838, originally uploaded by beckeyz.

Earlier this week I was woken up by some extremely loud afterburner sounds. These cool pilots were practicing for the air show this weekend at the base just 2 miles from where I live.

My dad used to take us to air shows when I was much younger. I got my love for photography from my father. He gave me my first 35mm Minolta the Christmas of my senior year.

I decided I should take the kids to the air show since they got such a kick out of seeing them practice.

I remember the photos my dad took at air shows....they were mostly blue sky with a speck of black somewhere that was either a plane or perhaps a bird you could never really tell. And there were A LOT of them. That much I'm sure I got from him. I took close to 350 shots with my new zoom lens before my battery died (next time I'll know to bring the extra battery in my pocket). We had a blast.

I like to think my daddy would be proud of my photos today.
