Photo: Second Coming

An image from recent nightwalks around Montrose, Houston. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I’m used to seeing the area by day, but the neighbourhood at dusk can really bring out some beautiful tones of light. Expect more of these. Tap to see bigger.

Photo: Royal Bakery

I’m attempting to post single photos more often instead of waiting until I get a a collection done as a ‘gallery’. Hopefully it’s something I can stick to long term. This is the first of this new endeavour, a shot of the Royal Bakery building in Montrose, Houston. Click/tap to see it bigger.

Houston Rodeo 2015 (so far)

We’re about half-way through our season-long attendance of the Houston Rodeo, and it’s been pretty fun, albeit a little repetitive. Basically each night we see the rodeo events immediately followed by the live performances. The rodeo events have been my favourite things to see so far, particularly the Mutton Bustin’ and...

The Carolinas

The Carolinas is somewhere we’ve wanted to visit for a while. Early in 2014 we floated the idea to some good mates from our time in Malaysia (who now reside in Straya) and they accepted. In fact, one of them was speaking at a conference in Philadelphia later in the year. As it turns out, The Carolinas are beautiful in September. *...

Barb & Mike

Ever since Barb & Mike befriended us when we first arrived to Houston, it’s been nothing by a pleasure to know them. Come and visit, we’ll...

Blisswood, TX

Late last year Kelly and I visited Blisswood Ranch to get away for the weekend. The plan was to drive about an hour away from home, unload a few things form the car, then do nothing for three days. Which is exactly what happened. So, naturally, I took a few pics. === In other news, I’ve recently caught up on a backlog of photos....

Morning pastels

Sometimes it’s worth getting up early to catch a glimpse of what a Houston fall morning can deliver. There was a full week of this view on my ride to work heading east along Woodway Drive; warm tones in the distance, the building ahead reflecting the early cool tones of a few minutes before the sunrise. Breathtaking. Tap to view...

Canyon Lake / Austin / Washington DC

21 photos from Canyon Lake, Texas Canyon Lake is where we and a bunch of friends spent Memorial Weekend. Weather didn’t permit tubing on an icy cold river which was at a low level, so we simply ate BBQ, drank beer, talked nonsense, and laughed a lot. Coulda been worse. Bonus: random photo of a rainbow over Houston from my office...
