I have been in the Crossroads area for a little over a month now and one of my favorite things about it is that no matter where you are, there is always something to look at. Every drive to Port Lavaca, Shiner or any other town brings with it a small vignette to see and photograph. The diversity of the area's scenery makes every day feel like Christmas to a photographer.

The iPhone is an extremely powerful photography tool and I'm known to be kind of an Instagram fanatic. Here are a few shots that I have taken on the way to, during and off-assignment.

Oh, and follow me on Instagram!

These photos were taken in Port Lavaca. I arrived three hours early for my photo shoot, so I decided to explore the bay.

  This was taken on the way back from Shrimpfest in Seadrift. I loved the old, deteriorating boat sitting in the middle of a dirt sea. Jennifer Preyss and I pulled over and I snagged a few photos from the side of the road. The owner didn't appreciate me taking a photo however and chased us off his property, shirtless and on a tractor.

Speaking of tractors, here is one in Sweet Home.

On the way to shoot baseball in Austin.

This was at a store off Rio Grande. The empty couch being illuminated by the streetlight with the faintest bit of twilight in the background felt like a vacant movie set to me.

Sunday Beach. It was probably my hardest assignment to date.

During a Generals game at Riverside Stadium. I have been shooting a lot of baseball games lately. The games are cool and everything, but I absolutely love walking around the dugouts to get random little shots like this.

Journalists aren't super heros, we have to eat too. Unfortunately, we often don't have a lot of time to make ourselves a healthy meal, so we resort to fast food. I don't think I will ever be hungry enough for this.

My last photo is an aerial view of farms between Victoria and Port Lavaca. I was able to get a ride in a plane during the Father's Day flights and witness the beauty of the area from the air.
