Earlier this month I had the opportunity to spend the weekend with some very talented women photographers. We did some shooting, talking, eating and just plain had fun.

We spent the weekend at Happy Hills Farm near Glen Rose, Texas. I didn’t really shoot much with the models we had, but a few of us ventured out one afternoon and here are a few shots I captured in the area.

Fort ChadbourneWe stumbled upon Fort Chadbourne by accident. We were just out driving around when I noticed the 30 foot cavalry spur that greets you at the front gate. The fort wasn’t open the day we found it so we didn’t get to go inside the buildings but we did drive around the property and I jumped out to take a few pictures of some of the old buildings.

I was able to pick up a pamphlet about the fort and this is what I learned about it. It was established on October 28, 1852 and named in honor of 2nd Lt Theodore Lincoln Chadbourne and Robert E. Lee once passed through it’s gates. Fort Chadbourne was decommissioned and used as a picket post until 1873. Restoration has been underway at the fort since 2001.

Here are some of the photos I took while visiting.

This was our 3rd trip to Buffalo Gap over the Labor Day holiday. I always like to schedule a getaway for my husband at the end of the summer because by then he really needs it. He is a self-employed irrigator and after a long hard summer of working in the heat 6 days a week he needs some time off.

We found a tiny cabin in Buffalo Gap, the Buffalo Gap Bed & Breakfast that he seems to love so that is where we go. It is a tiny, one room cabin with a beautiful view. The only problem with this area is that there isn’t much to do. Since this was our 3rd trip we’ve pretty much seen and done everything there is to do.

I searched Foursquare for close by entertainment and it gave me the directions for 7 of the closest Redbox locations if that gives you a hint! There is Perini Ranch ; which is pretty well known in the area and is great food. We eat there every time. There is also Lola’s a teeny tiny little Mexican food restaurant there in town. Last time we ate there you had to go in the kitchen and get your own drinks. This time Lola’s was closed so we didn’t get to eat there. We did discover Don Luis’, which we didn’t even know was there so that was good. The food was really good too.

I think that we’ve been there and done that enough now that we probably will seek out a new location for next years’ trip. Here are a few photographs I took while on our little mini vacation.

Previously I posted about the sports composites that I now offer to my clients. This week it is fine art digital paintings.

Earlier this summer I had the privilege of studying with Maria Bernal, who’s fine are pieces are simply amazing. Since then I’ve been working on developing my style and will be offering paintings as a option for my clients next year.

Here are a few of the paintings I’ve done so far. Of course one is my dog Bentley. I can’t wait to print this one on fine art paper! I’m working on paintings of the other dogs too.

My dogs have always been one of the things I photograph most. Not necessarily because I want to, it’s just that they are here and I don’t have kids. So… therefore I post A LOT of dog photos.

I’ve been considering adding it to my business but I’m not sure yet. In the meantime I’m focusing on taking more than just snapshots of my dogs. They hate me at this point because they do not like having their photos taken. I always love to show them off though.

My dogs also have their own Instagram account so follow them @CrazyClarkDogs and follow me @PennyClarkPhoto.

Here are a few of their latest:
