Nacogdoches Photo-shoot

I’ve been house-sitting for my mom this last week and will be for the following week, while her and her husband vacation in Israel.  Of course work has kept me very busy during the week, but I had been looking forward to the weekend in the middle so I could take a short drive up US Hwy. 59 North to visit Nacogdoches, Texas and do a collaborative photo-shoot with my friend and fellow photographer Richard.  Unfortunately he was unable to make it, so I flew solo and captured some good scenery.  Richard was still very helpful, being familiar with the area and provided me with some maps and locations of photographic interest.  The weather had threatened rain for the day, for fortunately, it held off all day Saturday, but the clouds hung in pretty good.  This minor inconvenience just caused me to mostly stick with b&w, and a yellow filter! 🙂 Anyway, I’ve included some of the better ones of downtown Nacogdoches here.  Please visit my Flickr site for larger images of these and more!  It ended up being a big day for photography because I also got to shoot up the Nacogdoches Azalea Gardens and some local Lufkin Nightlife Saturday evening, but I’m saving those for (near) future post(s), so stay tuned.

Since it’s been awhile since I posted, the stack of interesting stuff has grown rather long, so here goes:

Quote of the Day:
“Yes, Rush got it right about (loosely) the definition of a prostitute, but wrong on slut. Sluts are girls who give it out for free. Sandra Fluke IS a prostitute: she is JUST plain NOT going to have sex unless YOU, the American public, Catholics and all, chip in your “fair share” and PAY for it!”

me:This (article) pretty much covers all the bases!

Iraqi teenagers stoned to death for “emo” haircuts.
me:We WASTED how many precious heros’ (and heroines’) LIVES and limbs, and BILLIONS of dollars to LIBERATE that country to now have this kind of $8#% going on just as the door hits our troops on the butts as they’re leaving?! If Bush or Obama had ANY knowledge of history and the conduct of wars, it would have first of all been fully PAID FOR with tribute exacted from their oil. Second, we would have imposed a constitutional republic (NOT a democracy) on them to ensure their citizens equal treatment under the Rule of Law! Short of that, the entire thing has been a complete WASTE and yes, this is mostly Bush’es (BOTH of them’s) fault!

      Thank you! Only the front shell that you see in the photograph is still there. There was a salvage yard behind that, but it’s long been abandoned too. My aunt said she’d been on many a date there back in the day, lol!
