This is the first post I’ve made that doesn’t include a photograph and isn’t about some small Texas town. But I thought I’d let you know why there haven’t been many posts lately and when you can expect to see more.
As many of you know, I’ve traveled around Texas over the past four-plus years uncovering (sometimes literally) and photographing beautiful abandoned buildings. For the last year, I’ve been working on the design of a book and trying to find a publisher. As of July, I have a potential deal with a large academic press (don’t want to say who for fear of jinxing it) pending the submission of final copy and photographs and their review and approval. I have another dozen or so sites to photograph this Fall and a lot of copy to finalize before I can submit. So if postings seem sparse, that’s the reason. I hope to finish all of this by the end of January.
Thank all of you who follow Lost, Texas and for your many comments. I really enjoy hearing about personal connections with the places I’ve photographed. Keep ’em coming!
