Life in 1830’s Texas

Just a few more images from my trip back in time to the 1830’s in Texas. If you’re ever in the Houston area, the George Ranch Historical Park is a great place to visit and it’s just about as authentic as it gets. No rides (other than on a wagon pulled by a tractor), no fast food and no crass souvenirs. It really is like stepping back in time!

Lightroom 2 makes it very easy to tryout different “Develop” presets and to back-up if you don’t like the results. You can even combine different presets, mixing and matching until you get exactly the look you want in your image.
