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...

Houston Rodeo BBQ Cookoff 2015

We’ve been in Houston for two and a half years (!!!) and we’ve never before been to the largest rodeo on planet earth. This changes in 2015. We have our season passes, and godammit, we’re going this year (but more on that in another post, y’know, after the Rodeo has happened.) For now, we’ve put ourselves in...

Morning pastels

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...

The Houston Art Car Parade .com That’s what the hell was going on. It is the Largest Art Car Parade in the world! Houston Art Car Weekend is the Orange Show’s...

Go Rockets!

I’ll be honest about two things: I didn’t think the Rockets had any chance against the Thunder in this playoff series, and The last time I was into NBA basketball was in the late 80s/early 90s… Since we’ve moved to the US, I’ve fallen in love with basketball again. It’s difficult not to when it really is the...

Terry the owl

While I was downstairs at my computer this morning I received a photo message from my wife (who was upstairs). It was a photo of a Northern Cardinal bird hanging out in the neighbour’s tree. Kelly was excited because I had excitedly relayed sightings of this bird to her on several occasions, and this was the first time she’d...
