Here are some scans of contact prints I made from 8x10 negatives I exposed in Caprock Canyon State Park, near Quitaque, Texas. in 2002.

The first print is on Kodak Azo silver chloride paper, and the second is on Stonehenge paper that I hand-coated with a platinum-palladium emulsion. They are both from the same negative.

Here is another image from Caprock Canyon, Quitaque, Texas. It is much like the previous two, but it is a different negative. I had moved in a bit closer to the tree in the foreground.

It is a platinum palladium print. Unfortunately, I had to crop it quite a lot to meet the posting limits.

Here is one more from Caprock Canyon. The prints are from the same negative. The first is on Azo, the second is platinum-palladium (pt/pd). Again, I've had to crop the top and bottom of these images to fit in the 3000 x 2000 pixel limit imposed by this forum.

Painted churches of Texas

Scattered among the state's dusty plains and the rolling Hill Country are 20 extraordinary churches that brim with art. Known as the Painted Churches of Texas, these backcountry places of worship are adorned with masterful paintings, shimmering stained glass, charming murals and gold-encrusted altars.
Each church has its own character, from the large, intricately detailed baroque cathedrals in the tiny community of High Hill, the brewery town of Shiner and the tourist hub of Fredericksburg to sweet, modest and even whimsical churches in blink-and-you-miss-them communities like Serbin, Moravia, Dubina and Praha.


The church at High Hill showcases a wide range of painting techniques, such as marbling on the wooden columns
