I don't normally specialize in photographing faces or people, but sometimes it is hard not to. So, for better or worse, here they are. Hopefully no law suits will results from my postings. hi hi.

The first lady works at a STRIPES store (like a 7/11) and has a pretty face and a bubbly personality. I think that it shows in this photo?
Photo at the rifle range was of my friend, mentor and coach, Louis Boling, who is now deceased. He was quite a fellow. Was in the Marines in WW2, was a rifle shooter for both the military and remained a competitive shooter right up until he died. He is gone, but not forgotten.
Oh yes. One photo needs a further understanding. I used to be a lecturer out at California Maritime Academy, in Vallejo, CA. This is one of my classes. The joke was they were caught on camera offering me a bribe for a grade. Well, I thought it was funny.
The people in uniforms are part of the battle of Goliad. Everyone dresses up. The ladies are making dinner for us the way they did back then. It is quite good. Very healthy eating.
The two people standing by the water were friends of mine from Jacksonville, Florida. I lived there from 1960 to 1965. Neither are living now. However, I first met Jerry when I was in the 8th grade and he in the 7th. That is his wife Cheryl. I was there when they first met. I am also friends with their son who still lives in the area. Life goes on.
The photograph of the young lady had to be taken. She has a very photographic face. The only problm is I had the Nikon on auto focus. Works great most of the time but not always. If you notice the sharpest part of the photo is not the eyes, but the sleeve of her shirt. Oh well. Maybe one day I will learn?
The last photo of the fellow with the bandana, I do not know. I was over at the Corpus Christi Botanical Gardens. He was a volunteer worker for the day. He just happened to be working where I was doing close up photography of flowers. We started talking and one thing led to another and now here is his portrait. I do not know his name, and never saw him again.
I am going back now adding on various photos and working them into a slot. The most interesting one was taken at the Texas State Aquarium. I like to photograph fish of course, but I also like to photograph the people looking at the fish. Here we have two lovers who I think are more interested in each other than the fish, but it did make for a decent photo. hi.
