It took hiking up a hill through a snowstorm to get to this location. I was wondering where the hell Trey was leading us until we came to this clearing. Then it all made sense.

I took this during the Meetup last month at the Chase Tower in downtown Dallas. We were having to shoot through glass in a well lit room, which usually creates horrible reflections. Thankfully, I have a little device called a Lens Skirt, which suction cups to the window and eliminates the unwanted reflections. I think I could have sold them all if I had some extras.
I posted this photo over on Flickr a few days ago and the dang thing blew up. It made their Explore category and it received over 7,000 views in 3 days. I love it when that happens!
I’m going Burning Man photo heavy this week because I can feel my ticket getting closer to me. It is really what it is all about. The highs and lows, the uncertainty. The bliss of achievement. When I get back this year, it will be so much sweeter because of the struggle. I’m sad that I can’t bring my family again, though. This ticket mess has not allowed us to plan properly for us all. It is easy with just me. I can load up the Rabbit and fly… but with the family, we’d have to rent a uhaul to bring 3x the amount of bikes and gear, food and water. I think it was meant to be this way, though. I’ve heard that the conditions are going to be super rough this year with the lack of rain. White outs are inevitable. I’d prefer their first experience be more than just survival.
I don’t even remember this little filly posing for me, but I’m glad she did! I can feel the energy building for this years burn. I don’t have a ticket yet, but I’m sure there is one out there for me… somewhere.
There are like 300 tix on Stubhub, but that goes against everything that Burning Man is about. I have some new art to bring for gifts and some Public Work shifts I’d like to volunteer for, but it’s really hard to plan when it is still out of my hands. Come on Universe… help a burner out! <3
I loved photographing in New York. Every corner is a unique composition. I walked upon this store and the blue light was just blinding. It must have been some Euro clothing store because the mannequins looked really weird. Of course I had to get some light trails, so I ran across the street and set up. Remember, you can purchase a print of this through my SmugMug account. Just click the photo to take you there.
Awesome night at the Dallas Arboretum with the Dallas Photography Group. These sculptures were amazing, but when it got dark, they really came to life. If you are a photographer, or even just photography curious, you should join the Dallas Photography Group through meetup.com. The experiences and events are normally something you wouldn’t do on your own, plus it’s great to have someone there if you have questions about camera settings or setup. I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.
During the 3 days I got to spend in New York for the International Auto Show, I spent all my free time out in the city shooting. We bought tickets for sunset at the Top of the Rock. I think next time I’ll pay the “day” price and stay up there longer. It’s not like they clear the place out just for the “sunset” people. Every rail was about 3 people deep and it took quite a bit of waiting to get a good spot.
