Bringing Port Aransas, TX to life. Photographs from the Everyday to the Extraordinary.
Pirate's Paradise: This project is the creation of a Photo-Journal Coffee Table Book showcasing Port Aransas, TX and the surrounding Gulf Coast area.
Port Aransas, TX is one of my favorite places in the whole World (I haven't actually seen the whole world, but you get the point). You might say I grew up there, one week a year for 49 years. My father started taking us there on vacation in 1964. Port Aransas to Aransas Pass to Corpus Christi quickly became a home away from home.
Port Aransas and the Texas Gulf Coast holds a special place in my heart and I want to produce a photo-journal of it's unique, simple, exciting, and distinctive personality. No, it doesn’t have the volcanoes of Hawaii, or the crystal blue waters of the Bahamas, but it has a rugged, natural, beauty all it’s own – a beauty characteristic of the robust State of Texas.
Unusual, Unexpected, Innovative, Fun, Wild - These are just some of the words that describe this beautiful, down-home coastal area. It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. As a Photographer I want to capture the beauty of Port Aransas and the Texas Gulf Coast. A Photo-Book will be my canvas, a camera will be my brush, and photographs will paint the picture.
Visiting once a year doesn’t afford the time needed to adequately photograph the area. To this point I have funded the project out of my own pocket. With your help I will be able to afford to travel the Texas Gulf Coast and spend the time necessary to capture the needed photographs to complete the project. Support will go toward such things as supplies, gas, food, lodging and so on.
This Photo-Journal is my attempt to share all that I love about Port Aransas and the Texas Gulf Coast with as many people as possible. After all, I can’t take all of you with me on vacation. :o)
Thank you for your help!
