When Katrina happened Austin musicians put on multiple benefit concerts for the people impacted by the tragedy. I was out with my camera of course and snagged this image. I need to give more details about the bands but neglected to document it. My thoughts are with the people of Mississippi and Louisiana.
Years ago I did a lot of alternative process photography. This is a combination of polaroid film transfer and pastel on watercolor paper. When I had access to a darkroom I was around people who still shot with film and were very process oriented. I really should continue to explore photography more. Maybe when I retire from the day job.
This family friend used to be kind of the neighborhood kid sitter. He kept an eye on all of us and made sure we didn't get into trouble. He would also come by my parents house to hang out and give out his morsels of wisdom. This is from a black and white photo I took of him during one of his visits.
I was looking through old photographs last week and came across this image. The photo was from a trip to Big Bend that I took with some friends in 1995. We were just outside El Paso when I saw this distant storm and double rainbow. We stopped and took a few photos and headed on our way.
During my most recent plane ride I took out my Koi paints and my watercolor trading cards to capture the view from above the clouds and clouds. We had a good pilot because storms were everywhere and he managed to minimize the bumps.
As I was painting this structure again, a local school/camp dropped in with a busload of kids. They proceeded to splash around in the water, screech and play. I managed to get a couple of them into this sketch.
