I'm trying to understand how I am related to your great grandfather Sam Tilden Chapman. Do you know what year he was born? What's his relation to Mahis White Chapman? Thanks!

Sam Tilden Chapman (the II or III)

Mr.Smith, I love your pictures. They are amazingly awesome. You are a very talented photographer. And being a photographer is one of the things I would like to be as a career! If this was to be my career in the fucher I would hope to be good like you.

Please remove the post regarding John May and Cowboy's Last Ride. He was a previous employee who is now in jail for two counts of burglary of a building among other illegal activities. He was never the owner of Cowboy's Last Ride. He should have never listed it for sale, because he did not have the authority to sell it. It is now located at 5050 Hwy 377N, Early, Texas. The office phone number is 325-646-3099.

Mike, i was looking around on the computer this x-mas morning before everyone got up, i guess iwas feelin a little homesick. I live in Georgia now outside of Atlanta with my family and saw your photo's of back home in Texas. I lived in Seymour and Haskell throughtout my teen's s and 20's. Your photo's brought back a lot of memories from out there in GOD'S COUNTRY. I'm not a photographer or anything like that but all your photo's are great. Will be sure to continue to check em out Thank's for your time, keep uo the great work it really show's what us TEXAN'S are all about.

Hi Michael,
I used to work at KBUC when I first got out of college. You were a jock there back then. I married Bill DeWeese now deceased. How are you? I just put in a search for KBUC and your site came up.

Mike, this is Andrea from the CTE conference. Love those pics! Good luck on the biography!

I found your galleries by chance because I was looking for pictures taken with an Argus C-3. I really liked what you have done with the older pictures! One from 1947 looks like it could have been my own mother and aunt.

Hi Michael, My son Mark tells me he works with you and you are a top notch photog. I'm a newbie at digital, but I have a similar setup (D300 and usually use the 18-200VR). I'd be interested in getting together and talking shop. I really need some help getting the D300 set up right.

Hi, Mike. I finally got around to looking at your galleries. WOW! You are a true artist of photography. Thanks for sharing. Peace!

Carol 26-Dec-2007 05:04
Good LORD!! You're my MYSPACE friend and I did NOT know that was YOU! I guess I thought it was some OTHER Mike Smith from Sam Houston. I feel silly, but your pictures are AWESOME! It was great to hear back from you....again. : ))
Richard 10-Oct-2007 21:28
I love checking in on your pictures from over here in Germany, especially the ones of Haskell since I lived there as a little kid. But I'm also fascinated by the pictures of the Texas Blues scene. Keep up the good work!

Fun gallery, I enjoyed the visit.

Your photos have left an impression on me that can't be described by words.

Some true talent here :)

Just a message to say hello. I love all the photos that you took around Texas. I am using them with my teachers that I train. I tell them that this is from a wonderful science teacher that I know. Linda

Mr. Smith, I love your photos, especially the ones of your family that you have restored. I enjoy taking pictures as well...although I wouldn't call myself a photographer just yet. I enjoyed looking at all your galleries, they're all so beautiful. -Michelle King

I really liked the Argus C3 photos. Really, really nice. The one with the flamingos and the garden in Texas were exceptional. Good photography. That Kodachrome film is also marvelous.
Marienne 12-Oct-2006 05:41

Very nice gallery of sunrises and sunsets and loved the butterfly gallery. I enjoy taking pictures of butterflies too and have been trying to make our garden a haven for butterflies. I have great diffulty in taking shots of "fast" moving butterflies though that never seem to stop fluttering their wings even for a few seconds. Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful images.

Hey there, my name is Abel Longoria from Houston and I was stumbled across your gallery on and noticed you were in Texas as well. I thought u may be interested in checking out a new forum I’ve created specifically for Texas Photographers. It’s and we have only been online for about a month now but have about 140 members from all across Texas!

Anyways, stop in if you feel that it may be of interest to you… we’d love to have you.
