Hello there!

My photo
My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors! The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal). I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).

In the Eye of the Beholder

What I love most about artistic expression is the many forms it can take on, as well as be interpreted. Beauty definitely is in the eye of the beholder. When one person might look at the side of a building as, well just that, a side of a building, someone else might see it as a magnificent piece of art. For instance, take the side wall of Oby's, a very popular restaurant in Starkville, MS (aka God's country!). One need not be a genius to figure out why I love it so much. Take a look at one of our engagement photos I just HAD to have next to that wall. Thanks Kathy (of Kathy Stephens Photography) for indulging me! ;)

But seriously, I seem to find myself always snapping pictures of the tops of buildings against the bright blue sky, random sides of old run down buildings and barns, intricate patterns found in mundane items, etc. You just never know when I might suddenly decide to stop, look up, and grab a quick shot. So I got to thinking, why not make a collection out of all these random images.

So, here you go! Here are the first few images I am happy to submit to this new collection I'm dubbing dbp archi/textures. Because that's what this collection is all about = architecture and random textures! Enjoy, and God bless :)
