Before moving on to the little contest, I want to share a picture from the First Page Book Festival I attended this past Saturday at the Decatur Public Library in Decature, TXThe event was great fun, and people seemed to enjoy my talk quite a bit. At least they were polite and laughed at all […]

Some of you astute readers may have noted that I have been off the normal schedule of posts this week. So kind of you not to point that out. LOL So today I thought I would share with you the reason my “best laid plans” have gone awry. Every year for the past four years, […]

Record Snowfall in Texas

Posted by mcm0704 on February 12, 2010 |

The winter storm that blanketed much of North and East Texas in snow overnight Thursday surprised even forecasters. After watching the latest weather report Thursday at about 10, I went to bed expecting to wake up to three or four inches of snow. Then in the middle of the night I heard the ominous sound […]

More Pictures

Took some shots of the sunrise one day this week. Thought it was interesting that the pictures were all taken about the same time, yet the colors vary significantly. I didn’t change the settings on my camera, so I don’t know why the variance happened. But I thought the pictures were pretty.

More Pretty Pictures

Yesterday morning I was out early just as the sun was coming up. Needed to feed animals and do some trimming around the yard, but couldn’t resist stopping for some pictures first. I couldn’t quite capture the sunrise in all it’s glory. It’s amazing how quickly a scene will change in the few minute it […]

Pretty Flowers

Posted by mcm0704 on August 7, 2009 |

I’ve been having fun with my camera again. The first flowers pictured here are Mexican Petunias. I have a bunch of them in my back flower bed. I had no idea that they multiplied like bunnies. The other flower grows wild on vines that stay pretty close to the ground. I have no idea what […]

A Photographer

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2009 |

I keep saying I’m not a professional photographer. And I must admit I am a long way from being a good professional photographer. But since I take the majority of the pictures for WinnsboroToday.com I guess I am a professional. Plus, I can hardly pass up an opportunity to take a picture of our animals […]
