Here’s what I get up to digitally in my spare time. I like to shoot photographs, experiment with video, dabble in fonts, create graphic artwork — all the things a curious designer likes to do. This is where this stuff’ll end up. Like a virtual ‘third-draw-down’ :)

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 Calf Scramble, but the horse and bull riding has been impressive. I think I’d give it a miss in the coming years, or at least go for one full Saturday or Sunday to get my fill of fried food (including butter!), bacon-wrapped sausage, and funnel cakes.

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. * Side note, If “The Carolinas” sounds familiar, it may be due to the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (or the movie).
