Most of you know that I’m more comfortable photographing landscapes than people so it took quite an effort to go into portrait photography.

Happy Thanksgiving! I photographed the ice rink at Millennium Park in Chicago using a photography technique to remove people from a photo.

One of my favorite activities of our annual spring trip to the Big Bend National Park is night sky photography. It is part of our grueling, 5-day schedule.
I took this photo in 1997 when a friend of mine, who was very instrumental in my photography journey, was visiting along with his daughter Anne.
I posted an image of Patrick the Bass Player two days ago. The image below of Kevin, the Harmonica player, is the second image from that same photo shoot.
I got a message from a band leader that I previously photographed. He asked if I would come over and photograph the band while they recorded a music video.
I you have not been to the Whole Foods flagship store in Austin you have missed a great experience. The store is by far the best grocery store in the country.
This is another sunset image from Rockport, TX. I noticed this couple fishing and I thought their shiloutted bodies against the sunset made for a good photo.
The City of Austin undertook an initiative to increase bicycle ridership in the metropolitan area. The Austin B-cycle system in the image is part of that plan.
This sunset photograph was taken in a park near the Rockport airport called Howard Murph Memorial Park. The photographer in the image below is John Martell.
I went on a Photowalk of downtown Austin late one evening. I was able to capture a variety of images including Pele and his master the “Street Musician”.
Photowalking is the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things that the photographer may find interesting.
The lead guitar player is responsible for the melodic tune and for the general sound. The drummer’s role is to make sure everyone stays in rhythm.
Next in my “Austin Live Music” series is a sax player that was part of a small band. I love playing the Sax but it’s an instrument I never mastered.
The artist in this “Window View” photograph is Sam Pace. He’s one of many very talented Austin musicians that are looking for their big opportunity.
Welcome to a new category – Street Photography. I have been wanting to try this new area for some time. Esther’s Follies was my first stop.
This is the second post in my Austin Live Music series. The first one featured a guitar player with his Gibson SG. The image below is of a Zildjian cymbal.
Austin is the “Live Music Capital of the World”. So, I decided to conduct a photowalk through Austin’s live music district to find bands to photograph.
I mentioned in a prior post titled “Homeless” that Austin is homeless-friendly. I ventured out to photograph when I encountered a homeless lady in a tunnel.
Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers, principal author of the Declaration of Independence, member of Congress, Secretary of State and the third President of the United States (1801–1809). Wow, what a resume!
This image was taken on the south bank of “Town Lake” (which is really a river) near the statute of one of our famous musicians, Stevie Ray Vaughn.
I was part of a photowalk in downtown Austin in the spring of 2012. Our first stop was the Long Center for the Performing Arts where we met a homeless man.
Many people describe Cuba as a country frozen in time. This is evident by the large number of vintage vehicles on the roads, many in pristine condition.
There is a place in Old Havana called the Plaza de la Catedral. It is here where you will find many Cuban Cigar Ladies posing for pictures. For me though, it was “No Photo for You”.
One thing that can be said about Cuban society is that they have an incredible ability to adapt. Cuba was highly dependent on the Soviet Union. This all came to an abrupt halt with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Hemingway was a big game hunter and frequently traveled to Africa on safari. As I toured his home in Havana (by viewing through the open windows) I could not help but notice this guy on the wall.
Ernest Hemingway was a famous author. In 1939, he moved to Cuba where he was adopted by the community. This was evident when I visited Cuba in 2014.
The other day I posted a story about the Sleeping Cowboy and the story about the Campfire Cowboy and my encounter with Lea Jones back in the summer of 1999.
I recently posted a story about the Campfire Cowboy and the an encounter I had with Lea Jones (Gila Wilderness Outfitter) at the Blue Front Cafe in Glenwood NM back in the summer of 1999.
