Happy Holidays – Texas Style !

This image is from a causal shoot, I did while visting friends in Sandia Tx, Michell & Tony Wood, owners of the Mariposa Ranch. The short video below tells the story about how i transformed an ordinary image into something that some peeps might consider art.

Commentary::

Few things are as symbolic of the Lone Star State as the Texas longhorn. The cattle’s legacy is rich and deep, spanning centuries – and even continents.

New DNA analysis shows that Texas longhorns are direct descendants of the first cattle introduced to the New World, shipped in by Christopher Columbus in 1493.

Although brought from Spain via the Canary Islands, the breed had an international heritage, with roots in the Middle East and India..

Here are a few additional images from that shoot.
