Behind the Shot
Texas is a big part of photographer Carly Tabak’s life. Her husband was born and raised in Texas, and they travel there from California often. This print of the iconic cowboy boot, to her, represents “Texas cowboy saloon life.”
Carly is mainly a coastal photographer, capturing the beauty and stillness of nature and beach landscapes. This image is different from her usual shots. Taken in Houston, Texas, Tabak wanted to express her deep connection to the state. “Texas pride is like no other,” she says.
