New Note Card Category and Vendor

Recently we were approached regarding CSA (Confederate States of America) note cards.  Over time, some images relevant to this theme have been captured, but not added to our catalog – until now.  A new gallery page was created in September of 2013, but it is not indexed on the website.  If you’re interested in this topic, you can find the gallery and place your orders here.

Texas As I See It Book Signing Press Release

October 26, 2011

Press Release: Book Signing

Frisco photographer Warren Paul Harris, in conjunction with the release of his first coffee table book, Texas As I See It, will be available to sign copies of the book in several locations over the coming months.

Warren’s view of the Lone Star State is evocative, compelling and insightful. Capturing everyday vignettes from our surroundings and processing them to enhance texture, color and detail, much of his work seems more illustrative than simply photographic.

With a keen eye for composition, Harris brings us the mundane, as well as the unusual with compelling results. From the amusing to the poignant, his combinations of light and shadow, texture and relationships, evoke a visceral response in the viewer.

As a long-time contributor to many local papers and magazines, Warren has captured some amazing events included in this book. But Warren’s love for his adopted home comes from exploring the back roads and small towns of Texas on his Harley and by car, for no other reason than to see what he can discover. A Licensed Texas Investigator, his natural curiosity serves him well in ferreting out the unusual among Texas’ hidden treasures. His experience as an architect, designing and building recording studios for 20 years, gives him a unique appreciation for line, light and shadow – and copious examples punctuate this volume.

While Warren has been best known for his time-exposures taken from unusual locations in the middle of the night, this first volume of three books is entirely daylight-centric. “After creating the prototype for this book in 2009, having the time-exposure work next to my daylight images seemed in conflict” says Harris. “As a result of adding a lot of new material from my library, it seemed best to break up the work into three volumes, which keeps the production costs lower and allowed us to produce a higher quality product.

Spanning 158 pages with 204 images, the book is hardbound with dust jacket and sells for $34.95.

Published by Brown Books in Dallas, Texas As I See It is endorsed by Ebby Halliday and Terry Box, the Sheriff of Collin County, among others.

Updated Frisco and Desolation Galleries

In researching my vast library of images, several desolation-themed shots stood out as candidates for processing.  In talking with Realtors the last few weeks, a recurring theme came up regarding staying in touch with clients.  Employing an abandoned house on the cover, along with text implying it just might be time to move, was the impetus for digging through my collection for more examples on this topic.  As a result, several more abandoned buildings have been added to the Desolation library.  In the process I also reprocessed a rusted-out, abandoned car I found in Lampassas last year.

On my way to Babes for a meeting the other day, I noticed Old Number Nineteen, Frisco’s historic steam engine, was perfectly clean.  This is unusual, to say the least.  In all the years we’ve lived here, I’ve stopped by Heritage Center in hopes of finding the train is pristine condition for a dramatic shot – and it never has been.  It is typical for it to be coated with dust, dirt and water spots from one end to the other.

But this time it looked like someone had just given the engine and caboose a thorough bath and it sparkled in the autumn sun.  So I took the opportunity to properly capture this bit of Americana for addition to my Fine Art note card collection – and inclusion in Volume II of Texas As I See It.  Below is one of the two photos of Number Nineteen added to the Frisco gallery today:
