This is my personal journal. I love photography and have been doing it for many years now. I like to shoot landscapes . I grew up as an only child on a horse and cattle ranch in the small east Texas farming community of Henderson. The farm I grew up on had many animals like horses, cows, ducks, geese, chickens, cats and a rat eating chicken snake we named Jake. It was a beautiful place with rolling hills, beautiful tall pine trees, and lakes stocked full of several different kinds of fish. I miss that life sometimes and when things get stressful, I think back to the farm I once lived on in one of the most beautiful parts of Texas.
