Abandoned canoe rental business on the Brazos

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.

Pop-up studio

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.

This is a time-lapse that I took of the Dallas skyline last week. The night was cold and the clouds racing in from the south and the little lights on the upper left of the screen are Southwest Airline flights taking off fro Love Field. I plan to take a series of these shots over the next year and put them together in a collage. Too my photo site – http://scottgipson.zenfolio.com/

1939 Delage D8-120 Vanvooren Coupe

During the 2013 Concourse de Elegance at Pebble Beach, I found this absolutely beautiful classic parked in an area near the edge of the 18th green. It was late in the afternoon and the sun and clouds were dancing around in the sky which gave me a lot of opportunities for different exposures. In the end, I choose this view because the lines of the car and light coming off of the exhaust pipes gave it a sense of classic art deco.

In2013, we attended the Concourse de Elegance in Pebble Beach, a storied location that the location in itself is a fabulous place to visit. I took well over 1,000 photos for the 3 days were we there and knew that I was missing some of them. Today, I found a folder inside a folder that contained many that I was looking for. This photos is of a 1930’s era Bugatti that was a pure joy to see and photograph.

Driving into Dallas this afternoon, I come up beside this really bored looking Boxer with his head out of the window. I did not get a good look at the other side but looks like a Golden Retriever in the same position. I have been curious by the site of dogs hanging out of car windows and (other than the driver getting some fresh air) always curious about what the dog is seeing, sensing, feeling, etc!
