Wine Glass Jam Sesh

Thanksgiving dinner with the Shelby's concluded with everyone randomly playing their wine glass. My family is crazy...or we're weird...or maybe we were just trying to prove the glasses were made of real crystal. I don't know how it started, but this is how it ended.

Diwali Festival 2007

My Karma feels better already...

Diya on the tower steps. I was so caught up shooting them that I didn't realize one had set me (well, my shoe lace) on fire. Zen-like states can be dangerous

Praying with water

Diwali is the Hindu festival of light overcoming darkness. Diya (candles), food, flowers, and chanting were everywhere, and this was the first time I ever had to take my shoes off at the UT tower. Good times had by all.

Almost Done...

I have one more shot to get before I can put this project to rest. Finally. The final project is in color, but some of the shots look nice in black in white as well. Am I indecisive...I can't decide.

Warning: Field Trips May Be Hazardous To Your Health!

These are some shots from a field trip to the pumpkin patch. After a lot of smiles, a few bruises, and one near concussion, we made it back to school. Let's just say it's rather humbling to know you can get your butt kicked by four year olds.

"Hey Miss Megan, I found my pumpkin!" Five seconds later, a plastic spider scared him and he dropped said pumpkin directly on my temple. I literally saw stars for 30 seconds.

"Hey, let's push Miss Megan off the hay bale!"
Result: Bruised tail bone and slight loss of dignity.

This is not from the field trip, but from a nature walk. They were finding things that represent fall, so basically leaves and acorns.

ACL: Faces in the Crowd

Why oh why did I never learn to develop color film myself? Inept people at the photo place screwed my negs, so forgive the lines across the pics. Anyway, I managed to smuggle in my AE-1 and my 50mm (not like it was too difficult) and decided to just shoot the random people I met at each stage in between performances.

Colonias con't

The yearning to return to Brownsville gets stronger everyday, hopefully by the end of the month I will have new shots from the colonias. Until then, here are some from the first trip down.
