Informal Portraits, Reno

On Independence Day weekend Reno hosts the All-American Barbecue Festival and the Firecracker 500 off road race.  This set contains informal portraits, candids and performers.  The high plains of Northern Nevada are special with lots of sunshine, moderate afternoon high temperatures, cool evenings and low humidity.  It was beautiful in the afternoons when the sun slipped behind the Silver Legacy and Eldorado buildings.


Japan-America Festival and Others

Some of these were captured at  festival sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Houston and held in Hermann Park.  Much of the entertainment was paid for by the Japanese Consulate here in Houston. The remaining photos are from a small art festival held at Houston’s beautiful Elizabeth Baldwin Park.

 Afterglow was exhibited at Sicardi Gallery.  Gilbert Hsaio’s  show was at Gallery Sonja Roesch.  I bought a venison sausage sandwich from the chef outside of Hardy and Nance Street Studios and went inside to find a girl taking pictures with her mobile phone held high.

Braes Bayou

Double Helix

Double Helix

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.


Places Without Locations

Crossed Wires

Crossed Wires

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.]


High Seas at Hanalei Bay

Two Boys, Full Speed

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.


Mahaulepu Trail and Other Delights

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.

Here are a few views on the way up and from the top of Wiamea Canyon. I was a bit disappointed when the clouds came rolling in, but managed to make the best of it.

Hanalei Bay was featured in the movie The Descendants.  It is the location of some of the most expensive beach homes in the world.

The Kuilau Trail is one of the easier ones on Kauai and offers stunning views of the area surrounding the Blue Hole.

2013′s Final Photos

Under a Steel Table

Under a Steel Table

The final days of 2013 brought opportunities to photograph volunteer models encountered in and near downtown Houston, along with a few candid street shots.  I couldn’t go to Mexico for the holidays, so I made do at home.


New Year’s Eve at a Hotel

Hallway Dark Spot

Hallway Dark Spot

I went to a big New Year’s eve party at a local hotel.  They had a nice buffet, a Salsa band, and the deal included a room.  At midnight all of the electronic keys stopped working.  Apparently, they knew this was going to happen because they had new keys waiting at the desk for hundreds of guests.  Those keys did not work and someone had to let everyone in with a hard master key.  The hotel gave us a $75 credit, and will remain nameless.  I am still there…


The Storm Ended Just Before Sunset

A Wish For Aspens II

A Wish For Aspens II

Yesterday it rained right up until sunset when the sun appeared, blessing the land with perfect golden light. There were fresh puddles at the curb and leaves were turning colorful.
