I’m Going Fishing

Here are a few shots taken last month at Buescher and Bastrop state parks near Smithville, Texas. I’m in the middle of writing an article to go along with these shots and hope to get it published in Texas Parks & Wildlife or Texas Highways if I’m lucky.

I drove up to this spot with Brad Paisley’s “I’m Gonna Miss Her” playing on the radio and the song seemed to capture the mood perfectly on that hot summer afternoon.

Well I love her, But I love to fish
I spend all day out on this lake and hell is all I catch
Today she met me at the door, said I would have to choose
If I hit that fishin’ hole today, she’d be packin’ all her things
And she’d be gone by noon . . .

Well I’m gonna miss her when I get home
But right now I’m on this lakeshore and I’m sittin’ in the sun
I’m sure it’ll hit me when I walk through that door tonight
That I’m gonna miss her, Oh lookie there I’ve got a bite

    • Scott,

      I always get a signed model release from anyone that is recognizable in the image, in this case the father and son. Magazines require signed model release before they will publish any images.
