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...

Australia, March 2014

Wading through the backlog Resting up from my knee surgery I’ve had some time to go through a sizeable backlog of travel photographs patiently waiting inside Lightroom. Today marks my first blog post in three months, and it contains a link to 100 images taken on our March trip back to Australia. The first half or so shot in...

And from this week-long encounter in The Big Apple, I’ve begun to let go of the notion that I’d thrive away from a big city. I am at heart, I believe, a city boy. I was intending...

Gator Park

So, you’re heard of swimming with sharks, but how about riding with ‘gators? You can do this at Brazos Bend State Park, Texas! And once our good mate Nina[1. Nina was the first friend we met in Houston, and actually the very first ‘local’ I ever spoke to :)] invited us to go riding in the ‘Gator Park’,...
