Below are the photographs which were included for my half of the exhibit. All of these photographs were taken in and around the town of Marshall, Texas over the course of a few weekends in September and early October.
These first two are of the old barn on my family's farm
These three are of the old burned out Sam Houston School
From a neighborhood in town

The images below are photographs which didn't end up in the show but which I think give an additional feel for the historic town of Marshall. I hope you enjoy my small photographic tribute to a town near to my heart. Click on any photograph to enlarge it.
According to my father, the name of the shrub growing here in the corner of the old ice house is "Piss Ellum". Apparently it reeks of pee when you burn it. The morning sun made it look like it was on fire, but luckily there is no smell associated with morning sunlight. :)
