Mostly sharing my photos but may include reading lists or whatever else comes to mind


I am a resident of Parker County Texas.  Married for 30 years; father of two daughters; grandfather to three grandkids. 

Professionally, I am an Application Analyst Sr. Staff (Application Software Development).   But of more interest, I am an active member of North Side Baptist Church of Weatherford Texas; a High School football official; amateur photographer; and an avid reader of histories – particularly Texana, Christian/Church history, ancient Greek, and Northwestern European history up to shortly after the conquest of England by William I and Doomsday.   I am also a big fan of John Graves, a “regional author” who is famous for his collections of essays and short stories.  I would describe his style as reflective and because he is writing about places and things and forgone times set in my region of Texas, I am thoroughly hooked and I recommend him often. 

This blog is primarily a vehicle to share some of my photos and its name is taken from the abundance of oak trees on my small place.  In addition to photos I will occasionally share thoughts on what I am reading if I consider it particularly interesting.  Yes, I realize no one will care beyond a few family members.  None the less, thanks or taking a few minutes to look around.

    Ed, how much would it cost to use one of your photos on a website. I love the panoramic of downtown Weatherford that you took.

    • Hello Mark. I am glad you like it. I don’t have a price list right now (SmugMug account expired). If you use it and give credit I will be pleased.

    Thanks Ed! Right now the website is in development stage, but I plan on using it on the landing page of a local lawyers website. I will definitely give credit if I use it. Curious to know what vantage point you used on it. I know it was somewhere over by Crockett Elementary and the cemetery.

    • I was either on Harberger Hill or at the high end of Greenwood cemetary overlooking the city. I shot from both locations.
