West Texas

West-Texas

My father was a Petroleum Landman and he was on the road most of the time. Every now and then he would pull me from school and take me with him leasing. One of my memories of traveling with him was driving thru West Texas at night with the horizon bright with flares from gas wells…. this photo took me back to that time.
