I became interested in photography through my grandmother, Mary R. Hudgins. She used mainly 35 mm Kodachrome slide film, a high quality film no longer made. Early on, she used 70 mm black and white film for family portraits. As a teenager, I inherited several of her cameras and her darkroom. Today’s digital photography is almost effortless, by comparison. Automatic exposure settings, easy digital correction, and in particular, circuitry in the camera that eliminates hand-shake, allow virtually anyone to produce high quality photos at a modest cost. My photographs reflect a life-long interest in visiting places that are remote and untouched by man, or in scenes that evoke an earlier time. These things are the opposite of my experience in early life, and they bring me some element of peace. I searched many years for a place to live that still held those qualities and I recently settled in the Nueces River canyon, after many years in the Colorado mountains. Most of my travels these days are to Big Bend National Park in Texas, or to Lake Powell, in Utah. I have a truck camper that allows access to all but the most challenging back roads, and a boat at Lake Powell that allows me to live remotely for several days at a time.


Mr. Hudgins is an amateur photographer, former lawyer and geophysicist, who lives in Barksdale, Texas.
