These were photographed at various Houston locations, but mostly along Dowling Street in the Third Ward.
These were photographed at various Houston locations, with several on lower Westheimer.
In Houston a bayou is a glorified drainage ditch. I live close to Braes Bayou and often use its hike and bike trail. Sometimes I take my camera along and shoot while walking or bike riding.
Houston artist Ivete Lucas is pictured wearing colorful hose. She and her husband constructed the tree sculpture which stands behind her, at Lawndale Center for the Arts. Her friend Zahira is to her right and the other two girls were the most interestingly dressed ones I could round up for the shot. Chris was tending bar that evening along with the two girls. Claudia is a friend and the shot is a set up.
Many photos are of recognizable places, like the Manhattan skyline. None of these landscapes are of instantly identifiable locations. The two aerials were photographed somewhere between Houston and LA, but I can’t tell you even what state is pictured. Remaining images are from Kauai, but without the Hawaii tag, nobody would ever know. [A fellow blogger who is also a pilot identified "Farmland II". See the comments.]
Just a few photos I grabbed downtown and in Montrose while stuck here in Houston. I asked a couple if I could take their picture and they immediately started kissing. It was the day after Valentine’s day. ”Photographer in a Dress” won Picture of the Week at the highly competitive Nikon Gear photo forum.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Janavi in her studio. She is also a scuba diver and we had an acquaintance in common in India. Of this group, April Murphy is the only one that I have known for a while. She appears with a work in progress. Vincent Fink’s work is all about fantasy. Paige does abstract floral paintings. All of these artists were photographed at the Winter and Spring Street Studios Second Saturday open house.
On my last full day on Kauai I went up to Hanalei Bay to see the high seas. Someone tried to go surfing. Paramedics took him away in an ambulance. Locals say it is possible to get swept off the dock by a rouge wave.
These were photographed on the Mahaulepu Trail, at various beaches or in the hills behind Kapaa. I did eat every bite of the delicious Ronald Burger at Joe’s on the Green in Poipu.
These were photographed around the hotel, in Kapaa or in the hills behind the town.
