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.

More of my efforts to avoid triteness at this amazing building in Bilbao.  I did get lucky because they turned on the fog machine while I was there.  Last night I visited Houston art galleries and had sushi rolls for dinner followed by a good night’s sleep.  Toto, there is no place like home.

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 awoke in Houston this morning, seriously jet lagged.  Customs was an ordeal.  Everyone from my flight was directed to additional screening.  There were no dogs present, so I have no idea what they were looking for.  There are lots of photos from the trip yet to be published.  Stay tuned.

Pamplona, no Bull

My room in a 5 star hotel overlooking a street where the bulls run was 150 Euros per night.  When the bulls are running it is 1,200 Euros.  Hemingway’s room was available that day for 500 Euros, 5,000 when the bulls run.  Many bars in the area claim Hemingway drank there, but it is likely he drank in all of them.

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.

The drive from Bilbao to San Sebastian should take about 90 minutes.  With stops for photos and numerous navigation errors it took all day.
