I'm just going to sit here

I’m just going to sit here

Don’t make me decide. It’s too hot to do any­thing but swim. Real­ly  too hot to swim, so I’m just going to sit here.

Brand Spankin' New

Brand Spankin’ New

I’m at an age where I seem to con­sis­tent­ly have 3 or 4 preg­nant friends at any time. At least this time it was a local friend so I can at least take some pic­tures now that the baby is here. I want­ed to meet the baby pri­mar­i­ly, but I also want­ed to give them some decent pic­tures. No more bad cell...
End of day monarchy

End of day monarchy

I’m not even sure what the title means, that is how fried I am. How­ev­er, a quick pho­tog­ra­phy stop for sun­flow­ers became even more glo­ri­ous with my lep­i­dopter­ous friend here. Again, unabashed word abuse, but I like the way it sounds.
My what big eyes you have

My what big eyes you have

I need­ed a goal before I began tack­ling some pho­to library orga­ni­za­tion and clean-up this evening. It only took me 4 days to actu­al­ly start after think­ing up the idea. Tedious but nec­es­sary. Find­ing inter­est­ing eyes makes it a bit more bear­able.
A plumed thistle for your thoughts?

A plumed thistle for your thoughts?

Found on a pleas­ant evening dog-walk. It is either a Wavyleaf this­tle or a Texas this­tle — still inves­ti­gat­ing the sub­tle dif­fer­ences between Cir­si­um undu­la­tum and Cir­si­um tex­anum. Any botanists want to chime in? Both are plumed this­tles, I believe.
April flowers

April flowers

Spring is pushed a month ear­ly here, so it should have been March show­ers for April flow­ers, but there has not been enough rain. I’ll wait anoth­er week, but things are get­ting des­per­ate in terms of wild­flow­ers. I might just be walk­ing down the high­way medi­ans, because that’s where all the best flow­ers appear to be. This...
Eat, Pray, Dinosaur

Eat, Pray, Dinosaur

I know. I know. I’m sup­posed to be tran­si­tion­ing to more pro­fes­sion­al mate­r­i­al on the blog while I am still search­ing for employ­ment, but I was giv­en a new dinosaur! In minia­ture! Per­fect for new pho­to projects. We did some bak­ing today — after I did my yoga and sent out a cou­ple of cov­er let­ters and resumés, of course. You...
Out of the theater

Out of the theater

And into the near-sum­mer bright­ness and heat on this last day of “Spring Break.” My SXSW film round-up will be com­ing soon. First, my first birds of Texas! A Gold­en-cheeked War­bler and a North­ern Car­di­nal.
Into the wild(er) slightly more northern parts

Into the wild(er) slightly more northern parts

I had a spur-of-the-moment chance to make a quick vis­it to the love­ly state of Aguas­calientes recent­ly. I’ve been mean­ing to vis­it the Vol­un­teer liv­ing up there, but sched­ul­ing these trips is tricky, unless you can just go with the flow and take the last-minute oppor­tu­ni­ty. This is now the most norther­ly part of Mex­i­co we are...
Marvelous Mexican Mountains - Malinche

Marvelous Mexican Mountains — Malinche

If only that title was also a palin­drome, that would be like infin­i­ty in word-nerd points. How­ev­er, even with­out a per­fect nerd score, it was won­der­ful to get back to the moun­tains with a lit­tle light moun­taineer­ing and an intense hik­ing day. We start­ed a lit­tle after 9am and made it to the top in a bit under 4 hours. The...
Pinal de Amoles and one Puente de Dios

Pinal de Amoles and one Puente de Dios

It was real­ly hard to nar­row down the 200-odd pic­tures I took last week­end down to the just-under 40 that I am show­ing below. The Río Escanela near Pinal de Amoles in the Sier­ra Gor­da de Queré­taro turns out to be just as beau­ti­ful as the soon-to-be off-lim­its Huaste­ca region in San Luis Poto­sí. I had always heard...
