This major art fair was held over the weekend in Houston at the George R Brown Convention Center, downtown.  They had a lot of interesting contemporary art on display.

    • It is a homage to a famous work where through the peephole one viewed a a statue of a nude woman with her legs spread wide.

    • Thank you. There were a few pieces that were profound, but the overall mood was more whimsical.

    • There are a few others, look under the North America drop down in the header, California button, then scroll to the series from San Francisco.

  8. The photo of the guys knitting may be one of the most random photos I’ve ever seen.

  13. Fascinating! But, what on earth are those men knitting – or is it crochet!? :D

    October 15, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    • It is crochet. I am not certain if the result will become part of an installation or if the activity itself is performance art.

        I hope it’s performance art! In time I’d love to see the men replaced by another “creative” exhibit to keep it “fresh”. Done monthly or something it could become a real favorite with museum goers and even others.

        • I really don’t know what was happening. What I do know is this is a photograph that a lot of people like, and it is completely off the wall, so to speak.

  14. husbands are brilliant:D

    • Thank you. That image has been a favorite in two Photo Forums where I posted it.

  15. Have you ever read a book called That Old Ace in the Hole? It’s about small town Texas and the panhandle. I read it years ago and loved it. Your photos remind me of that book – wanted to comment generally but couldn’t on your ‘about’ so posted this here because I loved the ‘Husbands’ picture!

    • Thank you. Comments on the About page are shut off because there are too many and I can’t have both comments and widgets there. There are over 200 posts to comment on. I have not heard of the book, but Houston is anything but small.
