Wonders of Nature

This was from today when Monica and I went to the Brazos Bend State Park. This place is incredible. There is a walkway that goes along some ponds and around each corner is some type of exotic wildlife. At least it's exotic to a Michigan guy like myself. There were alligators all over the place and it was amazing to see such creatures in their natural habitat instead of in a zoo.

This was taken while driving around and exploring one of neighborhoods near the downtown Houston area.

I've been shooting mostly film this year because the camera I use it with is tough as a tank and all manual so the photos give me a little more gratification. Lately though the funds, and time, have been low so it's back to digital. Back to the 21st century. These are bugs I've come across. The big one attached to the door frame is a cicada. They look so prehistoric, I think they're cool. There is nothing to give it scale. It's just a large insect. The other photo is of a leaf-cutter ant that was looking for some leaves.

I took this a few miles from my apartment. It was a warm day and I don't know why this fella was wearing a suit and athletic shoes while carrying an armload of stuff.

Tune that banjo

This was near downtown Houston and this was during the Art Car Parade. After I took the photo I walked in one direction and when I returned he had a nice pile of money in his banjo case.

Art Car

This was last weekend during Houston's Art Car Parade. There were lots of crazy cars and people. And one ferret, the one in the picture here. A fun event.

This was from some of my wanderings through downtown Houston. The angles of light change all the time throughout the day down there. The fact that I can return to so many locations at different times of the day and have a totally different photo intrigues me.

A little ways away is a small airport which I sometimes drive by. There are these rows of airplane hangars that catch my eye and sometimes there's people taking their planes out for a flight. I decided to stop by to take photos so I asked a police officer and an airport employee and they said "go for it," which was cool. I like to include people in my photos but after walking around for a while I just wasn't seeing anyone. Around a corner though I saw partially opened hanger door with this plane sticking out and the flag blowing in the breeze so I took the photo and here it is.
