Pictures along the coast from Houston, through Beaumont to Orange to the Louisiana state line. Wherever my adventures take me -- photos that spark the mind.

Weighty feathers friends vie for Fair prize
This is from the roaster chicken competition at the South Texas State Fair in Beaumont. The Fair started last Thursday and runs through this week. Hundreds of youth and their parents and friends stood waiting for the poultry competition on Friday. The judge, far left, uses her hands to measure the dimensions and quality of the hens breast to determine the winner. Each contestant holds up the birds they have raised, hoping to get a leg up (poor pun, I know) on the crowded field.
