I live in Lubbock, on the High Plains of Texas, where the open skies and long horizons let me focus on forms in the built environment. I find
great beauty in decaying buildings.
Like a lot of people, I have college degrees that I don’t use. Mine are in architecture and urban planning. I currently work as a grants writer for a large non-profit agency.
My photo series Where the Wind Gallops is in the permanent collection of Texas Tech University Library’s Southwest Collection. My work has been shown in several locations in Texas, and in Kamloops, British Columbia.
Since January 2009, I have posted a photo every day on my blog.
Of course, you are welcome to follow this blog, but you can also keep up with the project on Facebook. Or, you can find me on Twitter, where I am @melindagharvey. My other blogs are The Poetry of Photography, Misc & So Forth, and Dirtgazing.
