This is me assisting Eric while shooting the Midget (they say Midget instead of Pee Wee) Little League Championships. It was held at the famed Gordon Wood Stadium. Ironically enough both the teams playing in the championship were from the same town. Talk about small town blues.

Im still in Texas. There seems to be a lot more production work here, then was explained to me so I haven't had much down time. It is however a great experience having the opportunity to not only assist a photographer on making a book but, also producing it all along the way. As I mentioned not much down time but, for my first afternoon off I thought I would poke around the inn I'm staying at. Its about 10 miles outside of town and it is called THE STAR of TEXAS (www.star-of-texas.com). It is run by Don and Debbie. Brownwood natives themselves. They are kind of the first original hippies I've encountered. They are a little different then most Texas natives, but then again so am I. As a feature to their place, they have a nature trail that goes all the way around the property. Don is a art metal sculpture and "works" of his are featured all along the way. I also had a chancing meeting with the family llama. I know it's a boy but for some reason I really want to call it "Bernese".
Check out my photos. Their are plenty more to come from this place. They've lived here 20 something years, and if someone was smart enough they should start to make a photo book about them.

As most of you know I have embarked on a 3 week trip to Texas. The photographer Eric McNatt has asked me to assist him, while making a book about Brownwood, Texas (his home town). Here is the first of many posts, with a small gallery about my time being spent here in Texas. This first taste is all a big night out at the rodeo. It's what they do for fun around here, and I had a great time. As far as Texas in general and the rodeo go, it's just so different. The people, the landscape, the culture. Not to mention it's hot as hell!
Check out my pictures, and look for more to come.
