Here is where I like to post shots from time to time from travels and outings that may or may not make it into the gallery.  I also elaborate about the photo a little more than the gallery shots.  I hope you enjoy them!

Suspicious Clown

July 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
The rodeo has clowns that help distract the bucking broncos when the rider tries to dismount, but there were also clowns walking around in the stands.  This one was a little near us, but he seemed to be a little concerned or upset about something by the look on his face..  I like the look in contrast to the "Like me on Facebook"pin on his shoulder..

Happy 239th Birthday, America!

July 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Happy 4th of July everyone!  Here's wishing you and yours a great 4th and don't burn yourself shooting off the awesome fireworks!  Oh, and of course, let's not forget why we celebrate this day and let's hope we have a better memory in the days ahead as to why we do celebrate this day! (I will leave that last statement open to interpretation.. :-)).

As far as this shot goes, it's a compilation of two pictures I took..  The flag is our very own that we fly at the sprawling Gearing compound here in Georgetown, TX and the other is of a bald eagle that we saw at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center outside of Girdwood, AK from our fun trip to Alaska last year.  I just took the liberty of masking the eagle on top of the flag and lo and behold, the perfect 4th of July pic, without the fireworks of course. Maybe I'll get the fireworks into one for next year!

Larimer Square #2

July 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Here is a shot that I thought would be appropriate to kick off the 4th of July holiday weekend... It's a pic of Larimer Square in Denver, CO where I think this particular street is always adorned with all of these lights and US flags..  Kind of cool, don't you think?

Round Rock Donuts and Lighted Tower

June 29, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
We're going a little ways back with this shot as I have with a few of the others I've posted recently, specifically 2013..  This is a shot from the side of Round Rock Donuts looking at the Round Rock Water tower while it was lit during the Christmas holiday in 2013.  This is an HDR converted to monochrome to make it a little more interesting.

A Fashion Wynn Sunrise

June 27, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
There are some great things to shoot in Vegas when the sun is coming up and I thought this angle from the Fashion Show Mall while looking at the Wynn Hotel and Casino was one of the good angles.  What do you think?
