What often interests me is the mysterious nature of landscapes and architecture. Much of my work is from a rural area in southeast Texas that was home to slaves, plantations and even a Union soldier POW camp. I keep this in my mind as I take photographs. Landscapes and old buildings have long memories. I try to capture the spirit of those memories. I think of it as a kind of duty.
