The Queen has been crowned! The Queen Theater in Downtown Bryan, TX is currently being restored to it's former glory. An important step in this process is the restoration of the crown, which had been removed- it's now back and rotating again. You can see the restored crown here.

The Other Foot...

I am currently teaching a photography class for twenty college freshmen.  I have talked about the "rules" of photography, and how breaking them is defintely OK- a new angle in a photo may open up a new way of looking at the subject, and give you a fresh perspective.  Extrapolating that, it can be applied to life too- which is an important lesson they will be learning in college (I hope!)  We had an outside day last week, and they had three areas to photograph.  They were to send me their favorite from each of the three areas, and I have been blown away by their work- I have some talented students!  And I learn as much from them as (again, I hope) they do from me- fresh perspective, a new angle...

Magnolia Pod

From my magnolia tree... it's about to burst open with pretty red berries and a new generation of trees. IF the birds leave it alone. BIG IF!
