Giddy on the smell of smoke and freedom…

Friday, July 4th, 2008

I took the camera and tripod to the Pearland library, which has a decent view of “The Rig” at Pearland High School, where the city fireworks show was this year. My first ever attempt at shooting fireworks (I have made similar photos of lightning). The results are not too bad. What you see below is [...]

Random Independence Day photos

Friday, July 4th, 2008

Summer and I went to the barn this afternoon to take care of the horses. I grabbed my camera and snapped a few random shots. Except for the first and last photos, these were all shot at the barn or on the way there.

Assignment: Houston – Summer’s photos

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Summer’s photos for Assignment: Houston were this photo and this one. (Summer does not allow reposting of her Flickr photos, so I cannot embed them here.)

Assignment: Houston

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

Over at Flickr is a photo group called Assignment Houston hosted by Houston-area photographer and blogger Laurie Ballesteros. Laurie is a friend, and when she found out that Summer and I have new Sony digital SLRs, she challenged us to become involved in her group. The premise of Assignment Houston is that once per month [...]

Backfill: Christmas in New Orleans

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

A happier New Orleans just eight months ago.

Our hotel was at the corner of Bourbon and Canal.

Finally Finished

Sunday, July 24th, 2005

This is the most complex Premier project I’ve ever attempted. Seven layers. Over a hundred different clips. Alpha blends. Motion blur. Drop shadows. It’s taking hours to render just six minutes of video.

Update, Monday morning: last night I discovered three different mistakes, and Wendy spotted a fourth. Then I didn’t like the size of the [...]

Sue and the Monster

No comment necessary:

Update: I took this photo, cropped it, boosted the contrast to make it spooky, and it’s now a nifty buddy icon for my Flickr account.

TOBD Strikes Again… Early!

Monday, July 11th, 2005

One of these days, my daughters will learn: if you take silly photos of yourself – or have a friend take them – delete them from the camera after you’ve had your laughs! If you don’t, Dad will publish the photos on his weblog.

Oh, the humanity!

Bye Bye, Blue Streak

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

We drove to Seguin last night and stayed in a local hotel so we could arrive on time for the 9 AM show at Blue Streak Stables. It looked like a well organized camp; the camp leader would yell out "Heyhey!" and all the campers would holler back "Bluuuuue Streak!" They put on a show [...]
