Billy Stone describes his panoramic photographs as "encounters of inspiring scenes along the various highways and side roads on his cherished road trips to New Mexico," where he grew up.  Stone recorded panoramic photos primarily for his own enjoyment as well as the enjoyment of others.  Stone chose to present the panoramas with nonlinear edges and black surround.  "I embrace the notion that these scenes are being viewed through an opening in the fabric of space created magically by combining the properties of camera, computer and the photographer, me."  Stone uses digital photography software to seamlessly stitch multiple exposures together into a single, much larger photograph.Jill Johnson, Fort Worth based freelance photographer, has included images from her series, Tru-Vue. "This series of images on the back roads of the West Texas Panhandle was captured on a Hasselblad using 120 film. It frames a fading Americana and offers a snapshot of the simple beauty in the barren horizons, deserted streets, and the minimal relics of the past" says Johnson. For more than a decade was is an award-winning photographer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Her creative and artistic images made the book, Glamourpuss the Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs (now in its 4th printing) a smash success.
