While visiting the Van Zandt Hotel in Austin recently, I spotted this photo of Wille hanging on the wall. Looking into this photo, I find the photographer was in the Austin music scene during that time and did a great job perfecting his craft.
The Navy’s Blue Angels fly near downtown Dallas last week.
So here I was all set up on the balcony of our apartment in Dallas waiting for the big show. I had seen the Blue Angels a number of years ago at Carswell so I thought I knew what to expect. Our balcony faces south (downtown) so I was watching some construction workers on the new Marriott off of Maple expecting them to start pointing when they saw them. Not! All of a sudden the Blue Angels were zooming by to my left and my attempt to get a video on the Cannon M6 did not work so here are a couple of shots I got on the first pass. The first one is them going behind the Polsineli building near downtown and then flying by the big comm tower near the AA center. On the 2nd pass they were much further south and thus, no pics.
Just happened to be in downtown Dallas last Saturday and was taking photos of the ads that were on the side of the building and turned around to catch the reflection of the clouds on this building.
As I mentioned in my last post, there are hundreds of weddings each month in San Miguel de Allende and while wang around, I came across a number of photographers plying their trade.
San Miguel de Allende is a very festive town. We were told that there were literally hundreds of weddings there every month and lots of festivals and celebrations. On this day we came across a parade in the remembrance of when this area was recognized as city. Each neighborhood had their own marketing band and in some cases, as here, costumed participants.
On the streets of San Miguel de Allende, I would come across scenes that may he hard for some not to ignore. Int his case, a mother selling trinkets and snacks while her daughter is asleep at he side. The local officials try to discourage this and the tourists walk across the street. I am an old softy from way back help if I can.
On the streets of San Miguel de Allende I found this lady selling, what looks like, gift for children.
