Located just outside the town of Lajitas, TX on the Rio Grande, this small church was never really designed for religious services. Rather, it served as a backdrop to some rather well-known films, including "The Streets of Laredo" and "Maverick" (the movie), starring James Garner, Mel Gibson and Jodi Foster. Although decaying in the unyielding sun and scorching temperatures of Southwest Texas, this abandoned movie set captured the "wild west" architecture, sparing no detail from its exterior stucco to the cross carved into the window shutter.
With a Marketing Degree from Southern Methodist University, I established my own advertising agency specializing in logo design, capabilities brochures, print/radio/television promotions and client relations. An integral part of my creative labors included photography, a passion that has stayed with me. I hope you enjoy my artistic endeavors.
