When you and I were young

First of all, happy early birthday, Red. Sorry I can’t be there (*sad face*).

That being said, I’ve got a special present for you! It started a few months ago when I got the itch to play some guitar (which, though a rare occurrence, is still something I can’t ignore). I started off re-learning songs I used to know long ago, but somewhere along the way I thought it’d be a cool idea to record a song with your name in the title. This turned out to be a loftier mission than expected (seems there aren’t many to choose from aside from Rod Stewart’s song and a few others).Read More

Butterflies Alive!

I recently had the pleasure of checking out the Butterflies Alive! exhibit at the Lubbock Science Spectrum and, while I can’t say I was blown away with the presentation, it was certainly a lot of fun.Read More

Science Spectrum Butterflies Alive Exhibit

Two of my photos have been selected for use in the Lubbock Science Spectrum’s new exhibit, Butterflies Alive!

Being from Houston, you start to take things like butterflies for granted. There’s really never a shortage of them throughout the year if you know where to look (and if you’re just lazy, there’s always the Cockrell Butterfly Center or Moody Gardens in Galveston). But up here in Lubbock where things of a brightly colored nature are very much seasonal occurrences, seeing a gaggle of butterflies (is that right? A gaggle?) is hard to come by.Read More

Art Exhibition at Glassy Alley

Come check out some of my photos at the Glassy Alley Art Studio & Gallery on March 1st. I’ll be showing some canvas and metal prints with a travel and adventure theme (okay, mostly travel with a hint of adventure).

This marks my first (and hopefully not last) time participating in the First Friday Art Trail, so I’m pretty excited. Some might say I’m even going a little overboard with the preparations…Read More

Saying goodbye

Me and Grandma

I had to say goodbye to someone very dear to me this past week, and I was saddened to discover how few photos I have of her left.

Note to self: never stop taking photos. You can never have too many of someone you love because you never know when that’ll be all you have left. Memories are questionable at best and fade over time, but photos are always there to help bring them back when you need them.

UPDATE: Good news! We found a shoebox full of old slides while cleaning out her house. Literally hundreds if not thousands of memories just waiting to be rediscovered!

Anyone have a slide scanner?
