Officer’s country

Out catching the evening light at Ft. Richardson…..

Officer's Quarters

You can find examples of Officer’s Quarters like this one at several of the frontier forts that  can be found in lonely spots in the Texas landscape.  Inside quarters like these you could find a little bit of “civilization” (depending on your definition, of course!), libraries, fine china, music and a safe place to visit and share time with your friends after a hard sortie out into rough country.  Often times the most comfortable place on post, the differences between officer’s country and the enlisted men’s barracks were stark!

  1. Don’t you just love that time of day? The lighting in your photo is gorgeous. I like the way you composed it too. 🙂

  2. (As Robin has already said) amazing light and composition!
    I really like how you’ve used those golden wisps of grass in the foreground…
    awesome shot, sir!

  3. Love the peek through the grass, Derrick. (Can’t wait for the book!)
