A real jewel in the desert. Beautiful gallery with gorgeous pictures. Can't call them photographs exactly. This fellow (really nice guy) shoots great photos to begin with, then PhotoShops the hell out of them until they are real works of art. Wanted to take home...More

Lots of photos, all taken, printed and framed by the gallery owner, Robert Haspel. Topics center around West Texas but some are very creative treatments of everyday items, for example, a sectioned rose. Interesting and worth a visit. Free.
