Statuary Detail

This is an image from the May 15th Photowalk around the University of Texas.  This particular statue was not here when I attended the university back in the 80s.  Anyway, what you see here is a detail from the corner of the base for the statue.  The statue is located on the West Mall.



Vicky-T of Cobra Starship

Victoria Asher of Cobra Starship playing the keytar.  I was fortunate enough to have a photo pass to photograph this concert.  This meant that I could shoot from the foot of the stage for the first three songs.  Man does time fly when you're doing that.  It seems you're just getting started when security taps you on the shoulder and tells you to leave.  
Anyway, I like that there is motion blur over most of this image.  The drift of her skirt, the swing of the keytar, the mic stand as I panned following her movement.  Glad she made eye contact with the camera at that moment.  There is a lack of sharpness on her face, but I think the energy of the shot makes up for it and carries the image.  What are your thoughts?



Alex Suarez of Cobra Starship

Alex Suarez, bass player for Cobra Starship at a concert in Houston, Texas. Since we share the same name and I often get correspondence intended for him, we’ve gotten to know each other online over the past few years. Since they were touring through Texas I made it a point to go and finally meet Alex face to face. Over the years, Alex has been gracious and humble--a real class act. For this concert, Alex set me up with VIP passes and a photo pass to shoot from the foot of the stage. I’ll post more pictures from the concert over the coming days.
Here we are meeting backstage before the concert that night:


Feeling Lucky, Punk?

I went on a photowalk with several Austin-area flickrers. I was struck by the view of this back alley behind Lucky Lounge.

Another view of the volcanic rock at Tuff Canyon in Big Bend National Park. Amazing sights to be had there.
