Day Trip: Smithville, Texas

Renovated, affordable, and gorgeous homes with front porches, rocking chairs, in a tree-shaded historical district lining the usually sleepy Colorado River, barely 45 minutes from Austin’s Bergstrom Airport. From the lovely neighborhood one can walk to downtown where new restaurants, refreshing beverage and loungy establishments, galleries, antique and bric-a-brac shops, coffee shops, bakeries, and what-not are popping up. Sophistimakated craft cocktails, […]

Waiting for some fall weather

Well there’s nothing quite like an 83F/28C frickin’ degree November fall day out here in the hills west of Austin. FALL: The wish. A close up of what my mind wishes it was like. FALL: The wish.   FALL: The reality. The same leaves on a tree in a gulley off to the side of the road during my […]

2 new TrIpPy cLiCkS

Two new additions to my TrIpPy cLiCkS gallery. No filters. No photoshop. Only cropped. Shot this in Buenos Aires a few years ago. Was sipping a nice Malbec at the time. I call it “Barra de Ensueño.”  Translates loosely to “Dream Bar” or “Daydream Bar.” This one is from way back in 2006 while visiting Marrakesh, Morocco. This was […]

New TrIpPy cLiCkS gallery

Check out my new TrIpPy cLiCks gallery.    It’s all designed to be a bit trippy. Otherwise what I call “Happy hour affected imagery.” Anything you see can be mounted, framed and delivered direct to you. Speaking of that, I have two large framed pieces of the above available that I’m offering at a great price. It’s a 22” x 22” […]

Framing now available on any image.

I’m pleased to announce expert custom hand framing and matting is now available on most images in my galleries. Since I don’t shoot or crop all of my photos to fit “normal” off the shelf frame sizes, I’ve arranged to work with some very experienced framers to offer custom hand crafted frames and mattes. They are […]

Predawn Austin

It’s that time of year when we’re still on Daylight Savings Time in the USA and the sun is not rising in Austin until about 7:30 AM. Makes for a rather dark 5:30 AM start for exercise around Lady Bird Lake, actually a river-like constant level reservoir on the Colorado River that gently flows through the Austin city center. At this hour all is […]

Puerto Rico memories

I’m saddened for those in Puerto Rico affected by the devastating blow from Hurricane Maria. Several relief funds have been put to motion in the wake of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.  If you have interest in donating, one such fund is United For Puerto Rico, launched by the First lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Areizaga, and private corporations. The recent […]

Fuerteventura

Sharing a tranquil scene that is stilled burned into my mind from 5 years ago this September. Shot this near the end of a long lazy late summer day doing absolutely nothing at Playa de Sotavento de Jandía, a stunning coastal paradise of turquoise water and fine white sand on the southern end of the island of Fuerteventura […]
