Foolish: Good old candy. A vice.
Opening: Found at the Austin Botanical Gardens. I wanted to leap in and have a good old country breakfast here.
Ram: I cheated a bit here, this was a Dodge Ram in traffic with me. I couldn’t help being cheeky with the Photo Request.
Eggs: Good ol’ Easter opportunity. A Girl and Boy Egg love scene
Fluffy: This piece was actually surprising to find while I photo shopped….it started off as a rather boring flower…
Shower: It had rained and these droplets called to be captured.
Fatherhood: Caught at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden in Austin. Very moving.
Pieces: Found these tiles outside of a cool little cafe down the drag in Austin. They were a fantastic color!
Brilliant: The sun peeking out of the trees on a rather bumpy bike ride.
Fishing: Beautiful Koi, Austin Botantical Garden. They kept bubbling up to the surface, following me, asking to be taken!
The liberty taken by an artist or a writer in deviating from conventional form or fact to achieve a desired effect…I caught this little sidewalk that just “ended” into a clearing – it was sorta like saying – walk the line…and then define the final adventure as you see fit. It made sense for this one!
Sheltering Sky: taken while getting ready for a night of camping. I love the eery trees that caged us in.
Taxing: Happy April 15th! Burn….
Rebirth: Umlauf Sculptural Gardens. It was raining a bit on and off that day. Was a fantastic thing to see this one nestled in the trees, almost hidden as if to make you find it. Karma: I don’t know why I thought of the “Karma” one here. It just felt like sometimes you end up having a bad day…because you gave someone else one.
Nirvana: Ah. Peace. Running: These were caught in a cool vintage store. I couldn’t help but love the mish mash of colors and dots. Made me wanna run around on a playground. Innocence: Taken at Toy Joy in Austin. This one was fantastic store – whimsy EVERYWHERE. I wanted to be a kid again.
Salud!: Beer enjoyed after taking portraits in Rice Village. Nothing said “Cheers!” more after a fantastic day of making images with friends.
Earth Day: Picking up litter along the street. Fixing the Earth – one piece at a time.
