It is a tradition for Texans to force their children to sit in fields of Bluebonnets and to snap their picture. It’s a way to later embarrass them that has been passed down for generations.
Texas Monthly wanted to pay homage to that tradition. They asked various contributing photographers to create a unique spin on the Bluebonnet. But because these flowers are here and gone in about two weeks, we were given the assignment a year in advance.
Then a year later something happened (was it the last space shuttle launch? I can’t remember). Anyhow, it got bumped another year. So here they are, my Bluebonnet studies I have been waiting two years to show.
