Daily Image: The Message

While photographing the Rowlett Creek Cemetery in 2008, I was intrigued by the condition of the steeple on this little chapel.  It looks (to me) like a bolt of lightning made some significant alterations to the spike atop this little church. This image is slated for inclusion in a future edition of Texas As I…

1/15/2013 Daily Image: Dallas Confederate Monument

Not many people know this Confederate Monument exists. Let alone that it is right next to the Convention Center in Pioneer Cemetery. The other thing most people don’t know is that there is a Confederate Cemetery on MLK Blvd in South Dallas. Am I the only one who finds that ironic?… Find this fascinating monument…

1/14/2013 Daily Image: State Fair Cafeteria

On page 44 of Texas As I See It Volume I, this is the view you would get it you were sleeping on one of the dining tables in the Texas State Fair cafeteria.  While waiting for my wife in the cafeteria, I became mesmerized by the repeating images of the Coca-Cola-themed tables and benches…

1/13/2013 Daily Image: Dallas Skyline

On page 152-153 of Texas As I See It is my version of the Dallas skyline.  I knew I needed a shot of the Dallas skyline for the book, but felt it was much more dramatic at night.  So one evening in the Fall of 2010, I made the trek down to Oak Cliff, which…

1/10/2013 Daily Image: Truck Stop Derrick

Toward the end of our 2,500 mile Route 66 road trip in 2011, we came upon this uniquely Texas establishment on Interstate 10 out in West Texas.  While it is not as common in Texas as it is in Oklahoma to see oil derricks scattered across the landscape, we do encounter them from time-to-time. Truck…

Upside-Down Plane Tornado Damage, Allen, Texas 4-10-08 On this day in 2008, I had been covering extensive tornado damage in Plano, Texas for the local paper when a neighbor mentioned there had been another tornado touch-down in Allen.

1/8/2013 Daily Image: Windmill in the Trees

One of my favorite areas to explore is Prosper, Texas.  It’s wide-open spaces, punctuated with abandoned homesteads, barns and silos make for some very dramatic images and I find myself returning frequently to explore. This image was captured during one such exploration in 2011.  I felt this abandoned homestead had a story that needed to…

1/7/2013 Daily Photo: Out of Service

While photographing the old Ice House in Celina, I noticed this old railroad track switch and thought the simple statement made by this aging red sign and vivid yellow handle to be poignant. Out of Service Celina, Texas Page 24 of Texas As I See It Volume I Copyright 2008 Warren Paul Harris all rights…

1/6/13 Daily Photo: Your Table is Ready

As I was wrapping up the shoot of a rural cemetery in North Texas one day, this massive lichen-encrusted picnic table caught my eye.  The term “large” is grossly inadequate for this more-than-25-feet-long outdoor table at the New Hope Cemetery.  Scenic, yet desolate, this is one of my favorite images of all time. Find this…
