West Texas - Near the Pecos River

Pecos River

Another one of those photo opportunities was this old stone house in Langtry, TX. The Pecos River runs through the area. This is the part of Texas where Judge Roy Bean presided and he was "The Law West of the Pecos". The music hall built there was named after the Jersey actress, Lillie Langtry. There is a Judge Roy Bean Visitor Center on a hill overlooking the land in Val Verde County, Texas.

These photographs were taken in March 2004 when the G-man & I were on our first holiday together. We first went to the Texas valley area and then drove westward with our final destination being the Big Bend National Park. We had a great time stopping at various sights along the way and found we were very compatible travelers.

Yet Another Cool Door

Another favorite door(somewhere in Florida).

Sidewalk Cafes

Sidewalk cafes are a favorite of mine. They are so enticing. It doesn't seem to matter to me if it is warm or cold, I love to sit outside. Of course outdoor fans or heaters are needed under extreme conditions, but just watching people come & go, seeing the birds flitting around, and looking at beautiful surroundings whether they be natural or man-made is deliciously enjoyable.

The French Wedding

On the afternoon that we arrived in Arles I decided to explore the town and I happened upon this gathering of people in front of the Roman Amphitheatre. I was about 4 PM on Saturday and a wedding party had gathered to have photographs taken. It was very lovely. It seems everyone lived within walking distance because after the photograph session was over everyone began to disperse going their separate ways on foot. It was the highlight of my afternoon to see this sweet gathering.
