Flowers in a field, somewhere southwest of Austin, Texas.
Black silverware, some pizza place in downtown San Antonio.
This is an amazing tree, found somewhere in California, but whoever lives around it probably has a ho-hum attitude about it. This is a spectacular climbing tree, but don’t fall on that fence in the background.
This hangs on the wall inside of Watsons in Orange, California.
Over the summer, I got to see quite a bit of Southern California and I took a lot of blurry pictures while sitting in the passenger seat. This is one of them, and, if this is your house, my hat is off to you.
This was the first time I have ever been served a grilled lemon with fish and chips.
This is a series of three photos taken of flowers, and there's not much to say, other than, I have no recollection as far as taking these.
And, oh by the way, Elvis played here. What the marker doesn't say is that Bob Dylan played here, too.
I love this place, and it's a great venue. These places are disappearing! Save them before it is too late!
Original photography. This was shot with my phone.
It's difficult to find psychedelic art in mainstream America. This is a highly stylized bull painted with pastoral colors and the odd bit of pastel thrown in to make everything decidedly overdone. And I have to identify it as a bull because this is found at Turkey Hill Farm. Now, shouldn't this be a cow? That's what I was thinking.
I'm not sure why I even took this shot, other than it was a great way to gross everyone out. This is the edited version. The actual version has a different orientation. The background is actually the ground and this cicada was attached to the wall.
This is looking down from the top of the wall where the cicada had attached its exoskeleton.
It's really hard to figure out what's "normal" for my grapevine because this is the first year I have witnessed things underway in the Spring. Does this mean the grapes are going to be green? Does this mean they're healthy? I don't know.
I do know this--it's fun to watch things happen. It's fun not knowing. I suppose it will be a let down come harvest time, but oh well.
River-facing facade of the Long Center, Austin, Texas.
I've had this mini-magnum pocket pak by Plano for at least twenty-five years, if not more. I think it's time to go on a buying binge.
This is the evening sky at sunset, and it looks worse than it actually was. The moon is a bright blur near the center, and I almost think it looks like a dragon. Something like that.
This is a very simple shot, and the light was very good. I would guess that this is about an hour before sunset, and the buildings almost look like toys.
