These photos are from my July, 2012 trip to Reno, Nevada. I was in town for a convention, but there was a major street festival right outside my hotel, so I skipped most of the presentations and when out taking photos. Most of these have not been previously published, a few were published in color but are now shown in black and white.

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.

Sunday Streets HTX is a program in Houston, Texas where streets in densely parts of the city are closed to automobile traffic on Sunday afternoon while bikers and pedestrians are invited to roam.  This past Sunday Westheimer was reserved for bikes and pedestrians.  It is in the center of the inked, hipster, gay and alternative community.  Bars and restaurants were packed, and a number of pop-up food stands were in business.  I treated myself to a tasty breakfast taco.

Lake Travis feeds the Colorado River.  You may notice the river is low with the bottom is visible.  Lake Travis is at 32% capacity after several years of a Central Texas drought.  It rained later that day, but the storm barely did anything for the reservoir.  This location is downstream near Bastrop, Texas at the Lost Pines Hyatt.

Ron’s coverage of SXSW continues.  Austin’s 6th Street is one of my all time favorite places for street photography.  It has atmosphere, bars and loud music spilling out into the street.  Frequently, it is closed to auto traffic.  One feels the intensity of Bourbon Street without the seedy, unfriendly underpinnings.

Stay tuned as I have 3 more galleries of photos from SXSW.  They are in color and have a somewhat different emphasis.

SXSW is a two week event in Austin, Texas.  The first week is a tech company conference, the second a music festival.  The venues are distributed around Austin, but I hung out on 6th street, famous for its bars and live music.

I would like to thank everyone who viewed the blog yesterday and especially those who left comments.  It was my busiest day in over a month.  There will be more black and white street photography tomorrow.

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to be on 6th street in Downtown Austin, TX during SXSW.  It took me half an hour to find a garage to park my car for only $15.  Beer usually $3 for a 16 ounce can was $5 for a 12 ounce can.  The place was packed.

Since last August I have seen a steady decline in viewers of this blog, despite adding followers and having many to start with.  Since the start of 2015, I published a lot of new travel photography, some of it from exotic locations like Hong Kong and Macau.  I wonder if it is worth the work.  If you like what I am doing, please visit the blog and view the thumbnails on the carousel instead of just leaving a like in the Reader.
