The Hinsons are cowboys


The Hinsons have a large family plot; many of the headstones are engraved with images of people on horseback. And several graves are decorated with lariats that won’t be needed any more.

  1. I found your blog through Leanne’s introduction. inspirational work, I love the sky here. do you shoot in colour and then process to black and white? I don’t remember if the introduction indicated with software you were working with, although I am not sure if matters, all can be as good or bad as the user! thanks for sharing your work.


    • I am grateful to Leanne for featuring my work! Thanks for coming over to see my blog.

      I shoot in color, and use Photoshop and NIK Silver Efex Pro to convert to black and white. I do have the display on my camera back set to show in b&w, which helps me know if I’ve gotten the shot I intended to, but shooting in color leaves me more options for later on. And, every now and then, I do post a color image.

  2. Fascinating to see a cemetery situated in a flat, wide open space. Those I tend to frequent in this part of the world have an altogether different feel to them.
