Sunday Snapshot

Sunday Snapshot


You might be a photographer if...


1. When you drive around, your eyes are constantly scanning the area around you for possible backdrops for a photo shoot.


We drove to Texarkana last weekend and I saw somewhere I wanted to stop and take a picture about every 15 miles.



I fought the urge until we actually arrived in T-town and I came upon this old barn.


So I planned a return stop the next day and Ruthie agreed.  It probably had more to do with getting out of the car than agreeing to a 10 minute photo shoot, but I am up for whatever motivation works.


Everything was going great as I was considering my composition and lighting until one very memorable moment.


The silence of the area was interrupted by some very distinct rattling/hissing sounds coming from inside the barn.


Yes the rattlesnakes won and we got the heck out of there pretty quickly.
