sign

Providence Church

This is a scene I photographed a few years back, too.  Then it didn't have all these cool little wildflowers by the sign, however.

I tried to do some research on this place, but couldn't find much on Google except its location on a map.  I saw a church by the same name in the area, so I assume this is their old place.  The new(er) one is much nicer and larger.

These are the kinds of places you find when you take that dirt road. ;)

This little gem is somewhere in between Chappell Hill, TX and Brenham, TX on N. Meyersville Road.  That's pretty much all I know about it.  I can only assume that some classic, southern gospel tunes were belted out of here back in it's day.

Not much to the photo technically.  It was one of those F/8 and be there kinda things.  I did shoot it ultra wide with my Tamron 15-30mm lens at a real low angle.  

If anyone happens to know any info on this place, I'd be happy to hear more about it.

Textures

A lot of the time I was walking around during our workshop in Apalachicola, I was looking for different textures to shoot.  I personally like images of texture, but I also may be able to do something else with these images down the road.  I may use these as texture overlays on some of my other images...you never know. ;)

Here are a few I took with my Canon 7D and Tamron 16-300mm Lens.  

Some of these items are tree trunks, rusty boats, chains, signs, etc.  I just simply zoomed in and got close to capture a certain portion of the texture I liked.  Shooting textures is a great way to get outside of your box, create images you can use for multiple purposes and it may even help you out of a creative funk.
