A Saturday in December

I wandered up to the Houston Heights and saw the sights on 19th Street.  It looks like Main Street in a small town despite being surrounded by sprawling Houston.

That evening there were more art gallery openings than one could attend in an evening.  Most of these were true openings with new works, not just art store open houses like the ones seen on Canyon Road in Santa Fe.  Photographs in the background in “3 Blonds” are by John Runnels at Redbud Gallery.  “Cecilia” is at Archway Gallery.

More from Rice Village, an upscale shopping area packed with trendy restaurants and equally trendy people.  Perfect for street photography in traditional black and white. There are also a few shots from Discovery Green, downtown.

Artcrawl is an annual event that takes place in November, usually on the same weekend as Via Colori.  It is an early Christmas shopping opportunity for collectors.  It’s located in the warehouse district North of downtown Houston, Texas that stretches from the docks North of I-10 where Diverse Works used to be housed to the Hardy Nance Studios where over 50 artists have studios.  This area used to be dodgy, but has become gentrified.  My two favorite venues here are Mother Dog Studios and the Hardy Nance Studios.  Those are where I spent most of my time.  The 2014 Art Crawl is next Saturday.

From Galveston Island, this is happening right now.  Pretty girl bartenders, promotional models and thousands of roaring motorcycles across the street from the Gulf of Mexico.  Stay tuned, I have more photos to publish.

These photos are mostly of active people in Mission Beach, California.  They are bicycling, skateboarding, walking, and cooking.

This architectural oddity is located about a quarter mile North of Ninfa’s on Navigation in Houston’s Eado neighborhood.  The area is in transition with large tracts of vacant land awaiting development.  Some of these images were influenced by Geiger’s interpretation of the loading port on a garbage truck.

During the evenings I went out with a 28mm f/1.8 lens to capture a bit of night life.  On a full frame digital body with good low light performance it’s the perfect tool for this kind of stuff.
