I recently embarked on a cruise with the Dallas Cowboys and a few other team members.
The crew was awesome.
The food was fantastic.
The cruise was amazing.
And yet, the highlight of my trip was the time I had with the owners of the Dallas Cowboys team.
They were super nice, funny, and generous.
I didn’t get to meet any of the players but I had a blast chatting with the owner, and he made me feel like I was part of the team.
I couldn’t have asked for a better crew.
And that was the perfect combination for me to begin my journey through the National Geographic Cover series.
In this series, National Geographic is challenging our readers to get inside the minds of the people behind the cover images.
I started out with an image of the Cowboys in black and white and then went to another, showing the Cowboys and the Cowboys team logo in full color.
This was one of the more challenging images to get right because the colors had to be the same across both images.
Then, I had to choose a theme for the cover, so I wanted to focus on the Cowboys.
But what if I wanted the Cowboys to be in another color, and what if that color was the team’s logo?
What if I needed to show off the logo to show my allegiance to the Cowboys?
The cover art for “The Cowboys” is taken from the Dallas Observer, and the team logo is taken directly from the team website.
Each image was created by National Geographic photographer Chris McCandless.
I hope you enjoy this series.
I’m so glad I started with the Cowboys because I think the Cowboys are the epitome of what the National Weather Service and NASA describe as “the coolest team in the NFL.”
I’ve never seen a team with such a diverse history and a passion for the game of football.
