An open letter to my friends in Texas

Dear all my friends in Texas, I was hoping my birthday would fly under the radar. When the scoop of birthday ice-cream came out after dinner last Friday night I was very appreciative. At dinner on Saturday night when y’all arrived wearing “bart-themed” t-shirts, I felt humbled that everyone would go to the effort. I was not expecting...

Still in Texas

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.
