|Red River at Greenwoood, Texas|
It is a very difficult river to access because the property on both the Texas and Oklahoma sides is owned by private citizens and I have not found a public access site. The only place I've had a chance to see the Red River was while going over bridges in a car and looking over the railing at 70 mph. But I want to get in a pontoon boat, a canoe or a kayak and traverse the river with camera in hand. It is interesting that even though I live less than 15 miles from the Red River, I've never really seen it up close and personal.
I decided today that after I get out of grad school, the documentation of the Red River is going to be my next photo project. Today, Bobby, at Greenwood, in Red River County allowed me to go onto their land and take some shots of the river bordering their property. I arrived a little late in the morning even though I left my house again about 5 am. Because I am directionally challenged, I had trouble finding the correct road to turn down to get to their house.
If I get the opportunity to photograph the Red River at Greenwood again, I am going to come armed with my pinhole cameras, my holga and more lenses. Next time I hope to be able to get on the sand banks a little before sunrise if Bobby is game!
