Grungy Gruene

Grungy Gruene

This is a corner of Gruene, Texas that I particularly like – appropriately rusty metal roofs, old wood, even a Texas flag, and best of all yellow bell blooming.  For those who don’t know, the town name, Gruene, means green in German and is pronounced Green.

Chevrolet Belair Hood Ornament

Chevrolet BelAir Convertible Hood Detail

I was working in New Braunfels on Wednesday when one of my colleagues pointed out a 1950s Chevy Belair convertible parked in front of the gallery. So of course I ran out to take pictures of it… Here’s one of its wonderful hood ornament. What a hood ornament! The finish on the car was pretty much gone and around the hood ornament some nice rust had developed…

Mural in Refugio

Mural-in-Refugio

More fun from driving back and forth between Wimberley and Rockport. This is a mural on what must have once been a filling station in Rufugio.

This is also an opportunity to mention how to properly pronounce Refugio, Texas. ruh-Fewr-ee-oh. Yep, it has an r sound here… OK, that may not be clear, how I wrote it, so you can listen. You want the second pronunciation — the Texas one of course.

Looking out of Mission Espiritu Santo

Looking out of Mission Espiritu Santo

Goliad State Park, Texas.  This photograph was taken with a fisheye lens, corrected to look more or less right, then the dynamic range (brightness and darkness) adjusted. This view shows both the angels (?) above the door with their blue and white striped background, the beautiful doors, as well as the anaqua tree (aka sandpaper tree) outside. This mission was rebuilt (as best they knew how) by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s.

Rock-a-Bye Motel, Luling, Texas

Posted in Architecture, Old and rusty, Texas on June 14th, 2016 by judy

Rock-a-Bye Motel

It looks like it once occupied the entire busy corner but now a Pizza Hut has taken the corner spot. Or maybe a filling station once took the corner spot. The layout is old style motel of the best sort — you not only park near your motel room, you get a garage!

Yet another Cuero find

The same truck as the last post but with more like the original background, albeit modified.  Cuero, Texas.
