So here we were last night we were at the Greenwood Saloon in Bluff Dale, TX for our friend’s retirement party from the Fort Worth Fire Department when my lady friend spotted this ‘old cowboy” leaning against the wall with a beer in his hand. This guy is right our of central casting for a Lonesome Dove character so she took some discreet photos of him and then went over to talk to him only to find out he is a Chiropractor from nearby! I introduced myself and found that he is from the area and just happened to have an old hat he wore out. Just goes to show that you never know until you introduce yourself. Full disclosure here, I took her photo and massaged it a bit.
A friend of mines owns this building and the boutique that was there is closing due to the retirement of the proprietor. So the other day, we went in to measure the square footage and I spotted this group of items being moved out and thought there was an art photo there somewhere. Thoughts?
We went to a clothing sale today which was held in the parking lot of the old Gypsy Wagon and once I saw the colors, could not help but to get the camera out and start shooting.
At a lady’s clothing store sales event today, someone was selling “gently used boots” or commonly referred to as Vintage Boots.
On a bright sunny day in Dallas, there was an outdoor sale at a woman’s clothing store and a DJ keeping the atmosphere lively on the parking lot.
Sometimes a photo just jumps out at you. In this case a building reflection in another buildings glass in uptown Dallas.
Driving along Singleton Blvd today in Dallas, through Trinity Terrace I spotted the Texas flag in stiff winds on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. I had to go on across the river to make a u-turn and navigate some traffic to find a place to park and then standing in the middle of the crosswalk, took this picture.
Sometimes, driving down the road I spot a photo op that screams “take my picture” This afternoon, as the sun low on the horizon, I was driving by an old canoe rental facility just outside of Glen Rose on the Brazos River and just had to turn around and take this picture.
I have been thinking about doing a pop-up studio to focus on pet portraits that I do occasionally. It just happens that a friend of mine owns an old historic building in Glen Rose that has a top floor that is unused. There are big windows on the south and northerly exposures giving me a lot of natural light to work with. Above, I did some test shots with no flash on a cloudy day and happy with the results. Now all I have to is a little clean up and move some furniture in that I can use. Should be fun to experiment here.
