This is something to see, more than hear, so I’ve posted some pics for you…though they really don’t do justice to the fine photography I’m talking about…

 The ongoing National Parks Photography Project….an exhibit of black and white, stunning photos taken by Houstonian Mark Burns in an odyssey to 57 national parks in the lower 48 and Alaska.

Some of the photos are on display through this weekend at Mixed Emotions Gallery in Houston, but no mixed emotions when you view them.  If you’ve ever visited a single national park, and even if you haven’t, you’ll be struck by the beauty and the magnificence of our country.

The larger prints and collection will debut at the Bush Presidential Library in College Station next year in celebration of the upcoming Centennial of the creation of our National Parks.
