Pruett develops love for photography

Royce Pruett developed a love of photography from his second wife and, at 70 years old, has embraced digital technology.

“I do a lot of picture taking. I’ve got several thousand pictures on the Internet,” he said.

The subjects of Pruett’s photo albums on www.Flickr.com are as varied as his life experiences. He has pictures of meetings and events from the Nifty Fifties Car Club, which he joined two years ago, holidays, gas stations and memorial albums for people who have died.

Pruett attended Frenship ISD from the second through the eighth grade. He said the school district was much different than how it is today.

“It’s changed a lot through the years,” he said. “It’s grown.”
