The young mother sat in the darkness grasping her baby. She trembled with fear, she prayed and cried.
The mobile home pitched with the winds.
She watched helplessly as her belongings crashed around her.
Hours of continuous rain turned the driveway into a rushing river.
Hail pummeled the aluminum siding.
The tin roof on the back porch ripped from its 2×4 studs. It slapped against the windows, and sprayed shards of glass throughout the room.
The terror of her screams were muted by the claps of lightening.
The following morning, her body lay amongst the garbage downstream. The baby nearby.

Chelsea came into my life when her original person had to move into a nursing home. She was 8 years old at that time. Who would’ve thought I would get to spend more than half her life with her.
She celebrated a total of 18 birthdays. This picture was taken at her 15th birthday. Also known as her Quinceanera. She raised over 2 hundred dollars at this birthday party for a local rescue group.
She “worked” with my clients. As a social worker she frequently met people who had turned hard to the world…yet she had a way of turning their hearts soft again…if only for a minute!
She travelled the country. Bringing smiles to all she met. Whether she was on a leash, in my backpack or sitting at a table, she was always well mannered and precious!
This was our last day together. I had to finally release this precious angel to the Rainbow Bridge. It was one of the hardest days of my life. Chelsea is gone but she will never be forgotten.

Her arthritic fingers gripped the arm of the recliner. She slowly lifted herself out of the chair and toward the window.
Her heart beat just a bit faster with excitement.
Was that her son’s car she heard?
Oh how she hoped it was him.
Is it a blue Chrysler? No, its a red Ford.
She slumped back into the recliner.
She stared at the light reflecting through the window. The brightness was misleading, the temperatures were dropping. Frost formed on the window pain.

“Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together. Geometry in photography — shapes, diagonals, vanishing points….”
I have always been fascinated with photos and drawings of objects vanishing in the distance. An object that goes so far it disappears into the horizon. Objects like a railroad line or a country road.
Traveling through the wide open spaces of West Texas this past weekend I found many examples of vanishing points…here are two of the scenes I captured
