"Vanishing Texas" is a photo series I started in 2011. A little at a time, I am photographing these scenes of Texas, parts of America's past that are slowly fading away. I do this with no budget for equipment, travel or my time and skills, because it fascinates me. Raising funds here will be a great help to offset costs of gas and food on the road, and time away from my business, allowing me to shoot more of these scenes, more often and publish them for all to see. If you like what I am up to here, pass me a little bit.. and I will send you complimentary copies of our music CD release "Prosperity Street" by Trace Relations, as a thank you.

All contributions are greatly appreciated, and I am always looking for location suggestions from friends, so if you know of some scenes like these, anywhere in Texas, please pass it along. 
Thank YOU

Roy's Cafe wasn't open when I stopped off in Corsicana, Texas, but the sign is a classic!...Processing more pictures from the road; rusty stuff, abandoned buildings, forgotten towns, lives lived and gone... what stories they tell! Thanks for your interest and support of #VanishingTexas - this fundraiser helps me keep the wheels on the road, offsetting a small portion of my expenses, not a "moneymaker" by any stretch of imagination. If you like what I am doing here, please share this to your page, or make a small donation. Thanks, Trace
