Lookout Mountain

These are all images of Kingsland, Texas. It’s near where I work and I shot these the other day on my lunch break. I took these pictures during this last week of December, since the weather has been so mild and nice lately.

Happy New Year!

The streets are empty

I feel bad not having updated this in quite some time. I get a nice momentum going, and then life steps in the way. Whether that step is a busy job keeping me busy during the time that I would normally be out shooting or simply having other tasks that needed attended to, it’s time to get back at it. Having this as an outlet to post images and design work, I love keeping this as up-to-date as possible.

This is a series of images that I took yesterday (Dec. 25) morning before the streets filled up with cars and traffic and the daily routine. This shows the city in a much quieter moment when the hustle of everyday life is briefly paused.

Bobby Bare Jr. in South Austin

Bobby Bare Jr. is on a house-party tour now traveling across the country. I was lucky enough to go to the show that he played in Austin, and in fact the show was just down from my house.

I have seen Bobby play before, but it was at a much bigger venue and many more people. That is the great thing about this type of show; it’s such an intimate experience for the listener and the interaction between artist and fan is he held in a dining room instead of a warehouse.

These are the best images that I shot, and I hope you like them too.

Cheers to Bobby Bare Jr.

Bob Log III plays the Mohawk, Austin, Texas

The Mohawk books great bands. Or, at least I think so. Last night was no different in that I got to see a show that I’ve been wanting to see for a long time, Bob Log III. It was a great show – tons of energy, packed with people and friends to share it with. I wish that I would have been just a little closer to the stage, but since I’m 6’4, I don’t like to block people behind me. So here are a few shots from Bob Log III playing the Mohawk.

This is actually one of the opening bands. Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout.

This is Bob Log III starting the show by walking through the crowd. He’s saying hello to my friends Dave and Katie.

The man himself.

Here is a heavy-duty inflatable boat / raft that people were tossing around. I thought it might take down some of the overhead lighting. Security was not impressed.

Overall it was a great show and I can’t wait to get the chance to see him again.

Space race

Tonight I tried to shoot a few stars in the sky.

Unfortunately I think too much light came from the city and I couldn’t get a great exposure. I really want to go to west-Texas and shoot out in the wide-open. These are two shots that I got off that turned out OK. Neither one of these pictures is of stars, but that’s how it goes sometimes. At least it was a bright harvest moon tonight, and that made for a nice image.

Home on the range

Today I photographed a very nice home for an interior decorator boutique in Kingsland, Texas. The home is a waterfront property on Lyndon B. Johnson Lake and is featured in a “Parade of Homes” starting next week.

I love getting to shoot stuff like this, so I jumped on the opportunity when it was brought up. Unfortunately the only shot I didn’t get was a nice exterior shot because the front lawn and landscaping were still in the process of completion. Here are some of the images from today.

Spending a Saturday at Port Aransas, Texas

I just got back from a little road trip to Port Aransas for the day and to spend the night. It was really nice spending the time with my fiance’ and getting to photograph and swim in the gulf. I’ve never seen blue water in the Gulf of Mexico quite like this. Schools of minnow’s swam around our feet, and a few small sand sharks and trout made their way around us. Some fish jumped out of the waves, and we had fun watching the action. We even saw a few jellyfish.

After swimming for a while we took a walk up to a large fishing pier and watched the people fishing and hanging out.

All in all, it was an awesome trip and I can’t wait to go back.

Cheers!

Wildfires scorch the Hill Country

The hills of central Texas have been blazing with smoke and flames for the past few days. Wildfires have destroyed hundreds of homes standing on this dehydrated ground. I have been fortunate that my home (or apartment rather) has not been in the path of the hot beast. I went out and photographed some of the areas surrounding Marble Falls for the paper I work for, and these are the images mostly from the Spicewood area. Luckily the fires had been contained when I shot these.

Shooting bovine

I tried to find longhorn cattle to photograph twice within the last two days. I don’t know if because the weather has been hotter this weekend than any other this summer or if they were just grazing in fields away from me. These are the only cows I saw and none of them had horns of any length.

This flood gauge I found a little humorous because we are in the middle of a long drought here in central Texas.
