Shell’s “boots” are planted deep in the hill country, a sixth generation Texan, Shelly Borgfeld has always had a passion for the outdoors and nature. Having no formal training in photography, her interest grew out of a major life changing event in her 40’s. “It slowed me down. I could no longer fly by the proverbial roses at 90 mph. Now I had to slow down, stop and smell the roses… Albeit Cactus Rose in this region. I thought, while I am here, I might as well take some pictures.” Shell and her friends began to have “sunset wars”, posted nightly on social media. “That became our ‘Reality TV’ ". Her friends and family encouraged her to pursue her passion for photography. Shell considers herself blessed to have the opportunity to take l photographs of land and homes that are a part of the Texas Hill Country heritage. Many photos are of old family barns, farm equipment or ranch implements. Shell now enjoys sharing those images with anyone who will slow down, stop and smell the roses too.
A special "Thank You" to my daughter, Lucinda, whose love, support and encouragement have been such an inspiration. I am blessed in her.
