Melvin Rasmussen has strong ties to the land and farm life. He has tried to reflect this way of life in many of his photos. He's had the privilege of growing up in simpler times, and realizes times have changed. It is not unusual for a drive through the countryside to result in a photo or two of old barns, sheds, and houses. On a quiet evening, Melvin will often write poetry to go along with his photos.
Taking pictures of Texas wildflowers is also a favorit pastime
