The Texas Pythian Home for children is called the ‘Castle on the Hill’. It was built with the architecture style of a castle due to the sponsorship of the Knights of Pythias, a fraternal order established during the Civil War. The Pythians put their motto of Friendship, Charity and Benevolence into practice and established the Pythian Home in 1909.

The Following Eight Images are of 7 different boys at The Pythian Home. The first six were taken with a Canon 7d with a 16-28 Tokina Aspherical Lens and a 430ex II on Camera for a light source.


 The following six images were taken with a Canon 7d with a 18-135 Canon Lens and 2 Profoto 7b strobes and a reflector for lighting.


The following images are 2 models that came along to take advantage of the beautiful interior and antique furniture that The Pythian Home had to offer.


The Next Seven Images are some interior and exterior images of The Pythian Home. This home is beautiful inside and out.

This needs to be taught in every school… this is what America stands for, not for what we are now!

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
– Dr. Seuss

Through my years thus far I have learned to be who I am now. It was not easy finding my true self and it was not easy not caring what people thought along the way. I am not perfect but I am a better person. Dr. Seuss gives the advice that I usually give to others with the same problems I once had!
