Unfortunately, the wall of moisture-filled clouds up from Mexico threw a wrench in my plans for storm shooting but one does not despair when faced with the prospect of two full days working in BBNP. I made for Terlingua to stay at Villa Terlingua, the beautiful guesthouse owned by my friend Cynta De Narvaez. It’s my favorite place to stay when I’m not in a tent in the park. It’s in the ghost town but far enough away from the store and the Starlight to be quiet, even during the chili cookoffs. I shot the Perseids image with the Nikon D810 and an f/2.8 17-35mm lens at ISO 2000 and a 20-second exposure.
My short feature package of story and photos documenting a few of my favorite bridges along Fort Worth’s Clear Fork and West Fork of the Trinity River. Also includes not-so-subtle digs at Dallas.
The Fort Worth Weekly published my photos from three Texas drought-stricken ranches this week. I’ll be making periodic posts here as I continue this long-term personal project.

This Texas thunderstrom rolled across Shackleford County in October while I was in Albany wrapping up a story for Texas Highways magazine. I started visiting Albany in the late 80s while quail hunting in Roby. In all my Texas travels, Albany rates at or near the top for friendly and sophisticated. The town’s Old Jail Art Center is home to works by Picasso, Modigliani and Rembrandt. The restaurants in this town all serve excellent fare.
It’s a mere two-hours from Fort Worth. Hop in the car or get on your Harley and head west!
