During a 2018 trip to Brenham, photographer Tom McCarthy Jr. wanted to capture the “antiquing vibe” of the town. He found what he sought with the color, shapes, and textures along an exterior wall of Today and Yesterday Antiques. “Brenham has those classic aspects, like the historic buildings and traditional town square layout around the art deco Washington County Courthouse,” he says, “but there are also pops of color from the antiques stores and many art murals.” McCarthy, who is based in Austin, says his travels around the state are always revealing. “With each town I visit, I feel like I have a better understanding of the people and places in Texas.”
