Austin, Texas

A few days ago, a fellow former University of Texas graduate student, Grace Sherry, and I killed an afternoon wandering through Austin with our cameras. I shot most of a 36-frame roll of 35mm film. We didn't have much of a plan but that was the beauty of the day.

So often I am assigned photography. In other words, I am told where to go and what to shoot and left only then, to my own devices to deliver the product. This day was relaxing and nonchalant by design and in then end, we still found some worthy subjects.

Weekend Adventures

I kidnapped Ashley from work about a week ago and took her kayaking on Lady Bird Lake. I brought my 35mm filmer and snapped a few shots along the way. I wasn't impressed with most of what I shot on the water but I was pleased with a few photos I made on the way to the water. I also included a photo of a bottled buried by time which I took during a geocaching trip a few days prior to the kayaking adventure.

We found a good deal through Living Social to kayak via Texas Rowing Center

Guess Who's Back In Action?

After what felt like an eternity, the United States Air Force Thunderbirds jet demonstration team has been cleared to return to flying, along with several combat squadrons previously grounded as part of sequester cutbacks. I, for one, am happy to see them back where they belong -- high overhead, standing tall as the face of the finest air power on the planet.

Dial P For Photography

I was asked by one of my regular clients, The University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance, to take a promo photo for a play it's running this fall, Dial M For Murder. Certainly the shot called for a film noir style and luckily my contact at UTTAD knew the perfect place. We scheduled an evening when all the required parties could meet, which is never an easy task, and set up the photo. The weather gave us the little help too. Rain was in the forecast but never materialized. What did show up was a nice unsettling mist. The shoot went great. I took about 30 shots total then punched up BKW and color versions. Both were used well, but I always liked the BKW one better -- felt a little more Hitchcock I think.

My wife and I are definitely going to see the show. Tickets go on sale in early August.
See you there.
