Due to my trip to Spain, I only had half a month of cruising Houston’s excellent art galleries.  I did get to the opening of the Houston Fine Arts Fair.  It was very crowded.

The weather was just right, so I went over to a nearby pond and took pictures of reflections on the water.

The jet lag is almost gone and I am looking forward to some time at home.  There is a big art show in Houston this week, so here are some artsy photos.  I can’t remember what “Red Box” was in case anyone wants to know.

Of the three major stops on this trip, Bilbao had the most opportunities for urban and street photograph, my favorite genre.  San Sebastian was the most beautiful and had the best night life.  Pamplona had the best food. candid street girls

How does one photograph one of the most famous buildings in the world in a way says more about yourself as a photographer than the building itself?  Those who teach photography call the issue triteness.  Let me know how I did. I did get lucky because they turned on the fog machine while I was there.

My journey through the Basque country continues.  I exist on tapas and wine.  The weather has been perfect save for a rain storm last night.  The leaning houses were near a small river.  They remind me of Kandinsky’s early work. candid street girls

I Awoke in Bilbao

A Still River in Bilbao

This morning I awoke in Bilbao to perfect weather.  The sun was out and the air was still.  You might notice the most famous attraction Bilbao is AWOL.  I have photos of the Guggenheim and will post them later.  However, I managed to find a bunch of pipers, something you don’t expect here in the Basque country.
