This is from a photo taken in Lubbock, Texas in 1999. I scanned the photo and then painted over it using ArtRage for the iPad. It’s a kind of a boring part of the county if you’re looking for things to do; however, the light and the landscape are amazing. I once saw the moon rise over the freeway in Amarillo and it was absolutely remarkable how big it looked.
What was I doing in Lubbock? Just passing through on a cross country road trip. I think I was on my way to Albuquerque. I don’t really remember much about Lubbock, except for the the Buddy Holly memorial that spells his name wrong:
Here are some of the photos I took:
I would love to return to that part of the country someday, with no other intention than to take some great pictures.
